Irrespective of an organisation’s size or how many people are employed, there is an inescapable element that affects productivity among all in the workplace.
Lack of adequate hydration affects a staggering nine out of ten Britons. This is due to a number of factors, however, a crucial part of this may be due to a work culture that perpetuates working without taking breaks, eating and drinking at one’s desk and most significantly not having a water cooler in the office or water dispenser station on the premises.
Research shows that a body water loss as little as 1 to 2% could be considered mild dehydration and already negatively affecting cognitive performance.
With a 2013 study showed that drinking water resulted in a 14% increase in productivity* a practical, cost-effective solution is the installation of a water cooler of sufficient capacity based on the size of the staff contingent, dispensing refreshing drinking water on demand.
