Enhancing Employee Well-Being By Creating Great Workplace Rest Areas with VendaTreat Vending Machines

As the workplace continues to become increasingly digitalised, with more extended screen time, higher productivity demands and the pandemic impacting mental health, businesses are now focusing on employee well-being. Creating a designated rest space is one way of supporting staff well-being while also complying with health and safety regulations.

You don’t need a large amount of space or extravagant furnishings for an effective rest area; there are plenty of simple yet creative ways to create a comfortable environment that employees can enjoy during breaks. We have collated a variety of different ideas on how you can get started:

Facilities & Amenities: A kitchenette can provide staff with refreshments, and a vending machine can offer additional healthy snack options. Vending machines have become an integral part of modern workplaces. VendaTreat offers a wide range of vending machines specifically designed to cater to the needs of workplaces. These vending machines are designed to provide convenient and hassle-free access to a variety of snacks, beverages, and other essential items for employees. First and foremost, the classic snack and beverage vending machines are a staple in many workplaces, providing various options such as chips, chocolates, energy drinks, and soda. These machines are ideal for a quick snack or refreshing beverage during busy workdays.

Additionally, healthier alternatives have gained popularity, leading to the introduction of vending machines that offer fresh food, gluten-free, organic and vegan options. These options promote wellness and provide employees with nutritious choices to support their well-being.

Specialised vending machines have also emerged in recent years, including those for hot beverages like coffee, tea, and hot chocolates. These machines often feature customisable options and provide a convenient caffeine boost for employees.

With VendaTreat’s range of vending machines, workplaces can enhance employee satisfaction, promote productivity, and foster a positive work environment. All our machines are modern and state-of-the-art with cashless payment facilities and tailored vending solutions with free delivery, installation, stock monitoring, and maintenance.

Furnishings: Comfortable furniture options like couches, armchairs, bean bags etc., provide ample support while allowing employees to move around freely as they please, enabling them to fully unwind from work-related stressors during short periods away from work. Adding some plants around the space will help bring life into it too. Not only are plants aesthetically pleasing, but studies show that having greenery indoors positively affects our moods.

Ambience: Creating a comfortable and productive work environment is essential for any business. Taking the time to consider how you can make your workplace a better place to be will pay dividends in terms of staff morale, productivity and well-being.

One way to do this is by setting the mood with natural sunlight or soft mood lighting, which can create a calming atmosphere. Natural sunlight streaming through windows helps create an airy atmosphere, but if that isn’t possible, then soft mood lighting does just fine in creating calm vibes throughout the office. Playing gentle background music can also help lift spirits and boost positivity during working hours. It’s also important that there are quiet areas where people can relax when needed throughout their day at work – as well as spaces designed specifically for informal ‘meet-ups’ so colleagues have somewhere they feel comfortable enough to socialise if they wish.

By investing in these ideas, businesses show their commitment towards looking after employee health & well-being while simultaneously boosting morale & productivity within the workplace – making it an altogether more pleasant experience overall.
