Where’s the best place to put my drinks vending machine?
Posted at 15:00 in : Blog
So you've decided to invest in a drinks vending machine for your office - now you need to think about where to put it!
If you’re considering investing in a drinks vending machine for your workplace, you’ve probably already thought about the many benefits it will bring. Perhaps your employees have told you how useful they would find it, or maybe it’s a way to boost employee engagement? It is also a great way to increase satisfaction amongst those people working in the office every day with little time for trips to the coffee shop.
Something else you’ve probably considered is where to put your new office vending machine; perhaps you’ve taken measurements to ensure you’ve got the required space - whether for the table-top KLIX 450 or the larger freestanding KLIX OUTLOOK.
Drinks vending machines are best placed in locations or areas that are as convenient as possible for your employees. They should be easily accessible by a high number of people - so locations such as communal areas and kitchens are brilliant. If possible, your chosen location should also have high foot traffic in order to maximise the amount of people that can grab their favourite drink on their way to their desk or to meetings; so areas such as corridors and entrance halls are also great locations for office vending machines.
There are other ways to maximise the return on your investment. With so many drinks options available, your new machine is likely to become one of the few places in the workplace that the large majority of your employees will visit at least once a day. Don’t let that opportunity pass you by! Put up a noticeboard next to the machine where you can share some key messages with your staff and display important material for internal campaigns or projects. If you’re running an employee survey or poll, try placing a collection box next to the vending machine - not only is it an easy place for people to drop off their responses but it also serves as a constant reminder to those who haven’t completed theirs yet.
A drinks vending machine in your busy workplace will soon become more than just a machine. It will become a hub of activity, which your employees are likely to visit several times throughout the day to get their favourite brew whilst sharing ideas and stories with their colleagues. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
