Coffee machines help make friends!

We aim to to make work more enjoyable with our vending machines!
A recent Daily Mail article proclaimed that ‘one in ten of us has no close friend as a shoulder to cry on and 42% say they have no friends at work’. We think this is a sad statistic and here at Mars Drinks, we aim to make work better with our coffee vending machines. We want to produce great tasting moments in the workplace and support businesses that want to create productive working environments. By creating great tasting moments in a working environment, we hope to connect people – hopefully encouraging firm working-relationships too!
Do you have a drinks vending machine in your office or workplace? Our two machines can be placed wherever you decide is best, perhaps near some sofas or in a staff area? That way, your staff can grab a drink at lunch, saving them popping out to buy one, giving them more time to socialise with their co-workers. We know it can be tough to find a break during a working day, but it’s very productive and refreshing to take time away from your desk, so when you return, your mind feels rejuvenated. What’s more, it’s great to meet and get to know your colleagues better over a hot chocolate, or a soup at lunch – where better to meet than at the office vending machine?
It can also be hard to engage new starters in a business. It’s natural to want them to feel right at home from the very beginning, and making friends at work can really help with what can sometimes be quite an unnerving time. If you’ve already got an area in the office with a drinks machine installed, it can give new starters the opportunity to meet multiple new people from the office during their break in a relaxed environment. Sometimes it’s difficult and intimidating to work your way around an office on your own introducing yourself, we’ve all been there before!
So, if you’re worrying that your employees are part of the 42% that say they have no friends at work, why not consider a drinks vending machine as a solution. You never know, it might gently encourage your staff to gather in one place and talk to each other, resulting in work friendships and happier, therefore more motivated, employees.
