Making water readily available to employees helps them stay hydrated and makes them feel appreciated. A BRITA water dispenser lets you fulfil personal hydration needs. Everyone can enjoy as much water as they like, however they like it. Be it warm, cold, sparkling or still.
Every day millions of people spend a large percentage of their day at work. In countless offices, stores and factories, people rush around from meeting to meeting. That’s why it is important to create a pleasant workplace atmosphere, which includes a positive corporate culture and attractive amenities, such as fresh, free of charge water for your employees. Just like a pleasant surrounding stimulates our brain, so too does drinking water. Further, it significantly affects our sense of well-being and improves concentration.
Our water dispensers, your source of refreshment
Staying hydrated at work is easier said than done. Many people are preoccupied or simply don’t think about it. It’s a paradox because stress, mental and physical strain and air conditioning increase our hydration needs. Nutritionists recommend drinking 1.5 to 2 litres of liquids per day. Consciously drinking enough is good for your body. After all, it is made of 50 to 70 per cent water and therefore is essentially in its element when kept hydrated. By providing employees fresh drinking water from a water dispenser every day you show a sense of responsibility for others and help them stay hydrated.
A water dispenser to ‘personalise’ your water
Finding the right water offer for your company depends on a range of factors, such as company culture, building conditions and economic aspects. The downside of bottled water: typically, it must be purchased in large volumes, requires complex logistics and generates costs. Tap water, in contrast, comes at a more favourable price and is always available. In Europe, high quality water flows freshly out of nearly every tap. It is among the most highly regulated foods. And then there is the sustainability aspect: tap water has a much smaller carbon footprint than bottled water as it helps to avoid plastic waste.
An innovative water dispenser perfectly complements a modern workplace. It reflects the eco-consciousness of a company and honours personal wishes by letting people – whether employees or customers – “personalise” their water. BRITA water dispensers provide tailor-made refreshment for everyone. Chilled, at room temperature, sparkling or still.
Boost your hydration
- Conditioning: Ideally aim to drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day. Significant physical or mental activity or spending the day in air-conditioned rooms or in a hot climate increase your hydration needs.
- Drink before you feel thirsty! Thirst is actually a sign of dehydration. A helpful rule of thumb: drink one glass of water every two hours and one to two glasses with each meal.
- Establish rituals: Serve yourself a fresh glass of water first thing each morning before starting your day. Alternatively, fill up a stylish carafe and keep it in sight and within reach at work.
- Keep things interesting. Now and then drink water in all its variants – sparkling, still, flavoured or as tea or coffee. Doing so keeps you refreshed on the one hand, on the other you also benefits from the positive benefits of each kind of water. For instance, sparkling water aids digestion and the bicarbonate it contains has a neutral effect on your acid-base balance.
The best drink for your health
Water refreshes us and keeps us fit. Staying hydrated helps boost your immune system, keeps blood sugar at an optimum level, and increases concentration and your overall sense of well-being. Lemonade and juice contain additives that the body literally must digest first. In contrast, water lands directly where it’s needed, so it can support your body effectively.
That’s why it is advisable to always keep water nearby at work. Stored in a stylish carafe or bottle – with your name or company logo – it supports corporate identity, while also reminding us of one of our most essential needs.
