In the busy workplace, it is easy to allow our wellbeing to be overlooked in favour of deadlines, meetings and the need to constantly achieve results. This way of working is actually counterproductive and you will find that a few moments to pay attention to your body’s refreshment will have demonstrably positive effects on your output.

Why refreshment is at the centre of workplace wellbeing

Positive effects from hot beverages

Our hectic lifestyles rarely leave time for reflection but it is the ability to take a step back that will ensure your continued productivity and creativity. Coupled with a revitalising beverage, you’ll notice enhanced mood and problem solving ability.

Taking time to enjoy a properly brewed cup of tea or coffee for example, stimulates pleasure sensors in the brain and can be a wonderfully indulgent moment in our hectic day that allows us to evaluate the task in hand. There is a wealth of research into the positive associations we have with coffee aromas and its stimulating effects – freshly roasted and ground beans needn’t be the preserve of the high street chain when there are a range of machines designed specifically for the workplace.

Hydration as a health benefit

Water, as we all know, is essential for life and optimum hydration is proven to reduce stress, added to which, electrolytes in water – sodium, potassium and other minerals – are vital for our normal body function. Air-conditioned or centrally heated offices and even general poor air quality can negatively affect our hydration levels and the result on our bodies is conspicuous when we experience dry skin. Good hydration will positively impact brain function and mood; a plumbed water cooler is not only an elegant addition to your office but a convenient way to maintain good hydration levels.

Juices to quench thirst and stimulate the body

If you find it difficult to drink as much water in the day as is commonly advised, some freshly squeezed juice may be a flavoursome alternative. In addition to the hydration that our bodies need, the essential vitamins and minerals derived from beautifully chilled orange or apple juice give us a real boost when we find our energies waning. Our juice machines offer a truly stimulating experience; being concentrates up to the point of dispense, they are the most cost and carbon efficient way of delivering thirst-quenching fruit refreshment. Packed in the UK using an aseptic process that only uses steam and heat to maintain the integrity of the products, there are no additives in order to retain the goodness in the juice.

The sharing experience

Beyond the healthy physical role that refreshment plays in our work lives it is also important for us as human beings to feel connected with our co-workers. Taking refreshment provides a welcome break in the day and also means we make time for the social elements of work. Having the opportunity to share a coffee will go a long way to improving mood and has a unifying effect, better able to tackle issues that arise within a team.

Employers that realise the importance of good refreshment will gain increased engagement and better overall health among staff. To find out how Aureo can contribute to your business and internal wellbeing please contact us today, we’d be happy to organise a demonstration for you.

What people are saying about Aureo

Thank you for the biscuits, what a suprise. Its always a pleasure doing business with Aureo.
The feedback is very positive; the staff appreciate the new options available and the pleasant new machines.
I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and support over the last couple of weeks during my absence in arranging for the installation of our new vending machines.
All has gone smoothly. Thank you for making our machine switch over so easy.
The coffee machines are operating very well and are a joy to clean as the process is so much easier than the previous models
Just a quick thank you for our new machine, it is proving to be quite the success! Thank you to you and Gary for your help and efficient service
The service we have received so far has been second to none and the quality of the drinks and the machine itself is of a really high quality. I’m just sorry it took us so long to get around to making a change with the hot drinks we provide to staff!
We have had the coffee machine installed now for less than a week on a trial basis.  I don’t think there’s any way our staff will let us hand this back now!
What a transformation!  Real plants in our new offices have been very enthusiastically received by all our staff and visitors and have created a positive improvement to the overall atmosphere.  Thank you Aureo!
Our bottled water has been supplied by Aureo for several years now. Their staff are friendly, they provide an efficient service and fast delivery. On many occasions, we have received our delivery within hours of ordering.
The plant displays and your service levels are a distinct improvement to our old provider – my only regret is that we didn’t switch earlier.
Having used Aureo’s services for some time, I have found them to be professional, prompt and always reasonably priced. Their service is very good and the new Flavia Coffee machine we have installed is a big hit with our customers.
I’m so sorry, I have just realised that I didn’t say a huge thank you for the wonderful plants that you arranged so quickly for us. Everyone was really impressed, they do look great. Thank you!
Aureo provide an excellent service. They always deliver our order next day without exception. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a wide selection of products to choose from which we can offer our clients. Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you for our plants – they arrived this morning and look really good. I have already had comments from staff and also our building manager who may be contacting you regarding changing her supplier!
We have been using Aureo to provide hot water for our staff refreshments for the past two years; we have found this method an excellent alternative to boiling kettles which tend to be uneconomic and time wasting.
I have just arrived back in the office to see our new plants, they look very nice :) very pleased!! Thank you
Just wanted to say over the past four years, the service we have received from Aureo has been second to none.  We would thoroughly recommend Aureo as a company with first class customer service. Many thanks
