You wake up in the morning, take a shower, put on the suit, eat a balanced breakfast, and comb your hair. Get in the car, turn the key, and— what are you forgetting? Must be nothing, you did everything with time to spare. Pull out of your driveway and onto the open road. That’s when it hits you— you forgot coffee! Suddenly, you’re going out of your way to find the nearest Starbucks, counting the minutes until you know you’ll be late. What would your boss think? What about your colleagues? For all you know, they’re doing the same thing. Coffee addicts, all of us.
The average worker in the U.S. spends $1,092 on coffee per year. That’s two-thirds the amount spent on commute. The average company spends more on coffee per worker than they do on worker training. Care to imagine all of the other things you and your company could be spending that money on? Too late, we already did it for you!
Using the Money Elsewhere
What could you possibly do with all that raw, caffeinated energy? A professional-grade basketball hoop with a 44-inch backboard comes in at under a hundred dollars. You could get one of these puppies for every room in the office and still have cash left over for basketballs. Not only is this a great way to get some exercise, it’s an excellent platform for team building and half-court domination.
What if your employees weren’t showing up to every meeting with a coffee in hand but an open palm instead? A strong handshake goes a long way in making impressions, and business cards are the handshake of the corporate world. Spend some of that money you save on personalized cards for your staff or colleagues. Giving your partners the professional confidence boost they need can be a perfect substitute for a caffeine high.
Better yet, supply your company with a high-powered stress reliever like document management software. It won’t relieve your coffee withdrawal migraines, but it could do wonders for all your filing woes. Contentverse is enterprise software, built for companies who want to spend their money on something a little more useful for your employees. You can scan and store all your files and retrieve them later without any hassle. Subscriptions start at just twenty-five bucks a month. Still craving that cup of Joe?
