You might not be in the mood to find vending machines for sale in your city or town, but you will certainly want to once you read about the benefits they can offer your office and employees.
Here are some of the best reasons why you should have a vending machine in your office.
Employees can forget to bring a snack or lunch
The morning can be a hectic time for your employees. Not only do they want to be sure to get on work on time, it is also quite likely that they are having to force their kids out the door so they don’t miss their school bus or carpool. During those hectic moments, it is possible that your employee forgets their midday snack or lunch. If they do, a vending machine in the office can save them both time and money when it comes to getting some important fuel during the busy workday.
They can save time and increase the amount of work accomplished
If you and your employees are working to meet a tight deadline, there may not be time to take a full lunch break on a given day at the office. If this is the case, a quick and easy snack from the office vending machine can allow you and your employees an opportunity to eat something quick, while also not taking an unnecessary long break, thus lessening the chances of meeting that deadline.
They can help you promote a healthier lifestyle
These days, more and more vending machines are being stocked with healthier options than the traditional back of chips and candy bars. If you are your office is trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, consider getting your vending machine stocked with nuts, dried fruit, energy bars, bottled water and other snacks and drinks that promote healthy eating and healthy living!
A bag of almonds and a water might not be quite as fun as a Snickers bar and a Coca-Cola, but it’s definitely healthier.
They can increase productivity
A number of studies have been done to prove that people are less productive when they are hungry or thirsty. Make sure your employees are working at their peak productivity level by offering them the option to fill up on some tasty and healthy snacks throughout the day.
You can make money off of it
If you buy a refurbished vending machine and stock it yourself from food and drink that you are buying at a wholesale price, you can actually make quite a lot of money per month off of it. Do this with a bit of caution, however. It might anger your employees if they find that you are charging them for items in your vending machine rather than simply offering it for free.
To avoid this issue coming up, it might be to your benefit to offer the vending machine to visitors to your office such as clients rather than to your employees.
