Let’s face it: Your workers want and love good coffee. And in this case, giving them what they want is great for you too.

According to the National Coffee Association, 62% of Americans drink coffee daily. And 48% of millennials said they had a cup of coffee they consider to be gourmet the day before.

When you provide quality coffee in your breakroom, you’re not just heading off frequent midday Starbucks runs. You’re also supporting the productivity of your people throughout the day.

As a recent NPR overview of caffeine research noted, low doses of caffeine can have several positive effects for workers, including:

  • Improving alertness and mental performance
  • Making people more supportive in social situations
  • Helping to reduce the risk of workplace accidents

The Boost They Need …

Your workers should be able to turn to your breakroom for a coffee boost, anytime they need it. And today’s workers know and prefer good coffee. The stale pots of mass-produced mediocre blends that were the norm in the offices of yesteryear just won’t cut it anymore.

… And So Much More

When you give your employees good coffee drinks, and an appealing central breakroom where they can get it, you do more than just give them a jolt of caffeine that gets them going in the morning. You also encourage:

  • Impromptu employee interactions that build a stronger culture and diminish organizational hierarchies
  • Healthy walk breaks that combat the negative effects of prolonged sitting
  • A rejuvenating change in environment
  • The feeling that you value and support your people

Don’t Forget Coffee Alternatives

While most workers across America view coffee as their workplace drink of choice, it’s also important that you provide alternate options. Poll your people to see what options they prefer before launching your program. These options could include:

  • Bottled and bagged tea
  • Bottled water
  • Hot chocolate
  • Soft drinks
  • Fruit juices
