Give Your Team a Vitality Boost This Winter

How much time do we all spend at work? Enough for it to have a big impact on our health.

For example, if you start to develop poor eating habits at work due to the quality of food on offer, it could lead to weight gain and energy loss. Therefore, it makes sense to give your team a health boost by offering them more choices over what they eat. After all, a healthy employee is more productive, efficient and energised.

Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can encourage your team to embrace a healthier lifestyle.

Help your employees to eat and drink well

Although the occasional treat such as cakes or doughnuts in the office on someone’s birthday is welcome, it’s not something that staff want to eat on a daily basis. However, it can be difficult to find healthy alternatives. That’s why more employers are looking at ways to give their staff a better choice over what they eat.

A simple option is to provide a vending machine with healthy snacks and drinks such as NOCCO, a no carbs drink that comes in a range of flavours. Vending machines are popular as they’re easy to maintain. You can choose from large floor standing machines to cater for a whole office or a tabletop machine to sit in a meeting room.

Many companies have also introduced juicers and smoothie machines into the office to enable their staff to concoct healthy beverages.

Provide catering facilities

Many employees prefer to eat food brought from home, and they appreciate it when their company provides them with the facilities to prepare their own drinks and meals.

It can make a big difference to the health of your staff if you have a fridge in the workplace, so they can bring fresh food or packed lunches to the office.

And to make tea and coffee easy, you could install water taps and boilers that offer instant hot or boiling water. It then becomes a simple matter to pour a single mug of tea or fill cafetieres and coffee pots.

Introduce water coolers

Hydration is vital to wellbeing, and many employees have come to expect a water cooler or dispenser in the workplace.

If you haven’t installed one yet, you could always look to plumb one into your mains water supply and use an integral water filter. This way you can supply fresh, chilled water on tap without the need for plastic water bottles.

"The Result: I was absolutely delighted with the service I received from Phoenix. They made their requirements very clear which really helped with my tight deadline. The finished product, which was delivered on time, looks incredible in my new office and I’m proud to show it off when I have clients visit. It has uplifted the professionalism of the office and I’m thoroughly delighted at the impression it gives."


"Our office space was quite outdated and needed a lick of paint and some TLC. Having Phoenix take the pressure from us to compare quotes and liaise with contractors & suppliers made redecorating a large office space a lot easier."


"When I joined my new company, they had 2 Jura coffee machines not working at all and a Billi Water Tap not working properly.  Staff had gotten used to boiling kettles and drinks with room temperature water. The Phoenix guys investigated the issues and I received a full break down of all the issues machine by machine along with the individual parts costs within 2 days. The new coffee machine is now working perfectly, has plumbed mains water and has a new milk fridge. The Billi tap was repaired but unfortunately still wasn’t working correctly, so, a new tap was ordered, delivered, installed and setup within 2 weeks, so we now have very happy staff. The fault finding, quotations and delivery of the service we received were second to none."


"In the short time I have been ordering from Phoenix, I have found the on-line ordering system user-friendly. My contact, Freja, has been involved in managing a manifestation of an office privacy room. Freja has displayed great qualities in her communication skills which are the epitome of any works being carried out."


"We have multiple sites all across the UK so managing the waste is a massive task, but having Phoenix helping us to manage all the contracts, really does make our lives a lot easier! They are always happy to help, the communication is great and we love having Phoenix as a supplier!"


"We are an extremely fast paced company, with high expectations of all our staff and suppliers. Phoenix adapt to our fast pace and also bring in ideas to how we can better manage our office supplies. I'd happily recommend them and am very happy at the service they provide."


"I have worked with Phoenix in my last 2 FM roles. This move was required very quickly as we wanted to sub lease our 5th floor. From first discussion through to move completion it was less than 3 weeks, which is very quick. Everything happened as expected and all my staff were working from their new desk positions on the Monday. I had great communication from the Phoenix staff which included a full debrief the week after the move."


"I have worked with Phoenix for a number of years in different Facilities roles.  They are unique as a supplier; providing detailed cost centre reports, pro-active help when mobilising new offices, pro-active account management to review expenditure and identify cost savings, ability to purchase one-off bespoke items, fast responses and good communication"


"I have been working with Phoenix for almost 4 years with two different companies. As a customer I feel extremely valued and the personal touch of account management from Alan and Tess has been superb. Phoenix are flexible and willing to put in the hard work to produce quality cost effective solutions."
