Many people know it is important to stay hydrated, but did you know keeping your employees hydrated can actually increase productivity in the workplace? This doesn’t only work for adults, one Medical reported that study by the British Psychological Society Annual Conference “found that college students who brought water with them into an exam scored higher marks than their counterparts who didn’t have water” and “that drinking water could improve students’ thinking and/or help students stay calm and quell their anxiety.”
In fact, Dr. Tony Ronay found that keeping your employees hydrated can increase employee productivity by up to 14%!
Benefits of Keeping Your Employees Hydrated
As it turns out, there are several benefits to keeping your employees hydrated! Here are a few!
- Keeping your employees hydrated increases physical performance.
- Keeping your employees hydrated increases energy, focus and brainpower.
- Keeping your employees hydrated helps regulate moods.
- Keeping your employees hydrated increases their metabolism.
- Keeping your employees hydrated aids in faster weight loss.
How to Encourage Your Staff to Drink More Water
Install an RO bottleless water cooler.
When you make it easy for them to stay hydrated, they are more likely to stay hydrated. Installing an RO bottleless (because who wants to constantly change those heavy 5-gallon jugs?) water cooler takes the guesswork out of staying hydrated. And the water tastes better too!
Before they sit to work at the start of the day, have them drink a large glass of water!
Make it a rule in your office that before anyone sits down to work, they must first have a large glass of water. Even better is to have them do this within a few minutes of waking up, but employers typically don’t have control over that!
Hold a water-challenge in your office!
Have a chart visible somewhere in the breakroom. Every time an employee finishes a 12oz glass of water, have them place a tick next to their name. At the end of the week, or the month, give them a prize or acknowledge them for their mad hydration skills!
Have leaders go around and top up half-empty or empty glasses every hour!
Having an hourly timer go off in your office so you can send leaders around to top up empty glasses is a great way to ensure your employees stay hydrated. On top of that, it coincides with “playing a game” during work hours!
In summary, keeping your employees hydrated means increased productivity as well as happier employees overall.
