A 2017 study from the department of water and sanitation concluded that the average water consumption of South Africans is 233-235 litres per person per day. This not only includes the water consumption by healthy adults but also for wet industries.
Even so, it gives you an idea of how much clean water for drinking you would need to provide in a small business setting to satisfy the thirst needs of your employees. This is one reason getting a hot and cold water dispenser for your office is a great idea.
Read on to find out some other benefits of a water dispenser.
INSTANT HOT WATER FOR COFFEE, TEA, AND OTHER NEEDS
You can help your employees be extra productive, by allowing them access to instant hot water to make their tea or coffee. They don’t have to wait for minutes for the coffee drip machine to complete its tasks or use a microwave to heat their water.
This also means that they won’t have to go outside to a cafe or a restaurant to get their tea or coffee needs satisfied, resulting in additional productivity.
EASY TO MAINTAIN AND SERVICE
There’s a myth floating around that says that water coolers are hard to maintain. However, a Topia water dispenser is very different to your regular water cooler. At Topia, we take care of all your servicing and repair needs. Our technician will schedule a visit on a yearly basis to come out and perform a service and filter change.
DEHYDRATION LEADS TO DECREASED PRODUCTIVITY
Unfortunately, due to the increased consumption of coffee, tea and other dehydrating drinks, South Africans and the rest of the world isn’t drinking enough water and are walking around in a state of chronic dehydration. Having access to clean drinking water could help your employees drink more water and thus be more productive.
BE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND ALLOW EMPLOYEES TO REFILL WATER BOTTLES
No one needs to be told of the negative effects of plastic on our beautiful blue planet. If you have a water dispenser in your office, this could greatly reduce the number of plastic bottles your office produces as waste. And that’s good news for future South African generations.
YOU DON’T NEED TO PURCHASE AN EXPENSIVE FILTRATION SYSTEM
Our systems are offered on a rental basis so there are no big initial costs. A small flat monthly fee and you will have a water dispenser in place. You also won’t need to purchase an additional filtration system for the kitchen tap and/or the bathroom tap. You can save on costs and divert those saved monies towards something fun for the employees instead.
A HOT AND COLD WATER DISPENSER IS A BOON IN MANY WAYS
You don’t want to force your employees to drink water, of course. But you can encourage them to do so by having a hot and cold water dispenser within easy access.
