Dehydration is the number one cause for loss of productivity in the workplace. When your employees don’t drink enough water they become lethargic making them less efficient. An unproductive workforce could end up costing you serious money. Money you could have used to grow your business in other ways. There’s a simple answer to this dilemma – make sure your employees drink enough water throughout the day to keep them hydrated and fresh so they can perform their tasks effortlessly.
A typical sign that your employees are not drinking enough water is that they’re not reaching their deadlines. Let’s assume their workload isn’t too heavy and that they’ve always made their deadlines but all of a sudden, they’re struggling to complete tasks. They might be dehydrated. Dehydration causes the following symptoms:
- Brain fog
Encourage Employee Hydration in the Workplace
Educate them – Explain to your team why it is important to keep themselves hydrated. Not just to increase productivity but to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Provide them with safe drinking water – If the water that comes from your tap doesn’t taste good, no one will drink it. Consider installing filters or opt for a water cooler rental in your London office.
Make it fun – If you really want to encourage your workers to drink water, try and make it interesting by keeping ice cubes and fruits in the break room to infuse their water.
While it varies from person to person how much water they’re supposed to drink, the common belief is 6 – 8 glasses. And since employees spend a large chunk of their day at work, it’s only fair to supply them with the one ingredient that will keep them focussed.
