Now that working from home has become more and more normal and many of your employees have also bought a just new 'Jura' or other high-quality brand for their home, coffee at work is no more. Surely there must be another way? More and more companies offer partly office work, whereby a limited number of employees work in the office on agreed days.
The large office coffee machine out the door
Now that many of your employees are only at the office a few days a week and they often have a good machine at home, less and less coffee is being drunk at the office. Advantage for the boss; the big expensive coffee machine can go out. Many companies replace the large coffee machines with smaller machines that freshly grind the beans and brew the cup. Takes a little longer but this also has its advantages.
A smaller coffee machine often takes a little longer to brew the cup of coffee, but this offers several advantages. For example, the employee comes out from behind the office for a while, where the fresh coffee offers an extra pleasure compared to the large filter coffee machine. The employees can also chat with each other about what happens less at the moment, employees appreciate this very much.
Benefits for the boss
Besides the advantages for the employees, a smaller machine also offers advantages for the boss. For example, the employees no longer have to wait for maintenance, this can be carried out easily, quickly and efficiently by one of the own employees or the cleaning team. This way you are no longer stuck with an expensive long-term contract.
From now on, the coffee beans can also be selected by the employees themselves or by the boss. Often an unnecessary amount of money is paid in subscriptions for coffee beans at the office where the quality is low and the taste of the coffee will always be exactly the same. How nice it is to involve drinkers in what they drink, in all cases budget is left over when switching from the 'expensive' contract.
Social aspect coffee machine in the office
In addition to the coffee benefits, a smaller machine also has a major influence on the social aspect of the atmosphere in the coffee room. A smaller coffee machine gives a more homely feeling in the coffee room, whereby the conversations between colleagues can be made a little more accessible.
