Whilst home-working has its advantages, returning to the office offers many benefits that home-working can’t, including increased productivity and improved engagement. Find out why installing a premium office coffee machine can entice your team back into the office.
We’re likely to continue to work from home in some capacity but more and more of us are returning to the office at least part time. Despite some benefits of home-working, remote workers can often feel left out, and office-based working provides the human connection and interaction that remote workers often crave. The installation of strategically placed commercial coffee machines throughout your space will not only encourage your team to return to the office, but can enable conversation and collaboration that can help build strong relationships at work.
The best ideas happen over a coffee, so use your office coffee machine to create a space that encourages communication and builds an inclusive and welcoming culture at work. TopBrewer’s unique design is a world away from the bulky tabletop machines you might be used to, and its under-counter brew unit allows it to be seamlessly integrated into almost any setting. This gives you the freedom to design a space that suits you and your team perfectly. Installed in an island or as a focal point in your space, TopBrewer’s design allows colleagues to meet, chat, and share ideas over a cup of their favourite coffee.
Office-based working provides the human connection and interaction that remote workers often crave
We spend a huge chunk of our lives at the office, so it’s important you are giving your team the experience they expect. The most recent Leesman Index found that only 64.4% of workers feel their workplace enables them to work productively, and only 61.4% think their current workplace creates an enjoyable environment to work in. With the flexibility offered by home-working, in order to draw your employees back in, the office needs to offer meaningful experiences and be somewhere they actually want to spend time. The workplace should inspire and motivate employees, and investing in a first-class experience will not only help attract and retain the best talent, it can also improve employee productivity and company success.
The importance of a premium coffee machine in creating a valuable workplace experience should not be ignored, and for the modern employee, the workplace and coffee go hand in hand. Incorporating a high-quality coffee experience at work is an easy way of elevating the employee experience, as well as improving productivity and wellbeing of staff. Introducing TopBrewer coffee machines throughout your space to deliver a barista-quality coffee experience is a simple yet effective way to improve the overall experience your team have at work. TopBrewer’s unique under-counter design allows it to be integrated into almost any setting, meaning that it can be strategically installed throughout the space to create an environment perfectly suited to your employees, without compromising on design or coffee quality.
From on-site gyms to barista-quality coffee, there are certain things that your team are very unlikely to have access to at home, and the range of perks and workplace amenities that you offer can be a simple way to entice your team back to the office. With Brits drinking almost 100 million cups of coffee per day, it’s hardly surprising that coffee and beverage facilities are consistently ranked as one of the most important aspects of the workplace (Leesman Index).
Thanks to our increased interested in and understanding of the coffee we drink, offering cups of instant coffee no longer makes the cut. We now expect a premium cup of coffee wherever we are, including the office. Installing a premium, commercial coffee machine, like TopBrewer, that is capable of serving barista-quality coffee for your team is a surefire way of encouraging your team to return to work.
We all have different tastes, why is it assumed we’ll all like the same coffee? Whilst we know the coffee experience plays an important role in the modern workplace, individual tastes and preferences can often be overlooked. It’s important to choose a commercial coffee machine that can not only keep up with demand, but that can also offer your team a personalised experience. How many of your employees prefer a decaf coffee in the afternoon, or would opt for a plant-based milk over dairy?
Giving your team the ability to make their drinks their own is vital. TopBrewer’s intuitive app allows the end user to customise their drink to meet their exact taste. The TopBrewer Professional Series comes with two bean hoppers, allowing you to offer two different types of coffee, including decaf, and both the Professional and Compact Series can offer two types of milk (including a dairy-free alternative) through the dual-milk fridge. TopBrewer’s sister product, TopJuicer, serves delicious and refreshing juice drinks through a sleek swan neck tap, perfect for those who prefer a cold beverage or extra hydration throughout the day.
To encourage your team to make the transition back to the workplace, you need to ensure their needs are met and the office they are returning to is a desirable place to spend time, and the addition of a premium coffee solution is a simple way to achieve this.
With a wide range of fully-customisable, barista-quality drinks, touchless coffee through the TopBrewer app and TopBrewerVoice, and a unique design that encourages collaboration, providing a first-class coffee experience with TopBrewer is a simple way to attract your employees back to the office.
