After reading all the facts about how drinking water benefits not only your staff but you bottom line as well, you have decided that now is the time to get some water coolers into your office. But choosing your supplier and what type of machine you use is no longer about who is the cheapest. Take a bit of time to get to know the different suppliers out there, it will be time well spent.
There are some very vital facts to take into account.
1) Can they deliver? There is no point having a water cooler with no water. Ensuring your water cooler company delivers when they say they will is paramount. Make sure you know when to expect your delivery but more importantly ensure there is a back-up plan. Knowing you can get an emergency delivery should you run out of water is just as important. Ensure your water cooler supplier is local to you otherwise it could be days before you see your much needed water.
2) Know where your water is coming from! You are paying good money for your water and so you should know that what you getting is pure, clean and filtered water with all the toxins and chemicals removed. There is a reason why you are paying for your water and not drinking it from the tap.
3) Have you chosen an ethical company? Who you choose to deal with and support reflects on who you are as a company. Pay attention to how your supplier cares for our planet and the people that inhabit it. Staying healthy in the workplace should not have a negative effect on the world outside your building.
