why every (healthy) office needs a BIBO water dispenser
It’s the place you spend most of your time so add wellness to your workplace by working on getting a healthy office and you’ll soon see the benefits. Here’s how with BIBO water’s top three tips.
These days, most ‘healthy’ offices make an effort to tick at least a few of the boxes when it comes to the trend for wellbeing. Fresh fruit, free yoga and maybe even reflexology sessions, are all just some of the ways in which employers are trying to improve the lot of their workforce.
the cost of chucking a sickie
After all, looking after the health of employees makes sound financial sense. A recent study showed that Aussies chuck 90 million sickies every year, costing the economy $34.1 billion annually.
Research from Harvard University found that improving air quality boosted mental cognition and helped workers to be more productive. Not only that, of course, but a healthy office means a happier worker – and one who is less likely to take sick leave.
That’s why architects, who have for years focused on creating buildings that are kind to the planet, are now also intent on planning work places that are kind to the people in them. In the United States, they have gone so far as to introduce a certification program called the Well Building Standard. Based on medical research, it shows how buildings can affect our health – and how to improve our surroundings.
how to create a healthy office
Of course, you don’t have to be an architect to make a healthy office. There are simple, cost-effective ways to ensure your workspace is working for you. Put these three simple BIBO water ideas into action and you’ll soon see an improvement.
1. clean water
Productivity increases as a person drinks water by as much as 14 per cent, says research from the University of East London. Install a BIBO water filtration system and the whole team will be able to stay hydrated easily with BIBO’s instant filtered, purified, chilled or boiling water at its fingertips.
The BIBO water dispenser is the perfect addition to any office replacing water coolers, bottled water and kettles. It’s better for the environment and with its range of cool colours, it looks great too!
When staff stay refreshed with BIBO water, they fend off the dreaded mid-arvo slump, and BIBO’s popularity means colleagues will enjoy a modern take on the old water cooler chats that foster communication and community among your team.

2. clear air
Adding certain plants to your office cleans the air and can impact the success of your company by increasing well-being by 47 per cent, creativity by 45 per cent, and productivity by as much as 38 per cent, according to a study from the University of Exeter. What’s not to love?
Just make sure to choose indoor plants that can survive low-light conditions. Good options are a peace lily or spider plant.
3. keep moving
The bad news is that scientists say sitting down for three hours or more without taking a break is bad for your health. But the good news is that there are things you can do to keep your ticker (not to mention the rest of you!) happy.
Standing desks, software on your computer or apps on your mobile to remind you to stretch and exercise every hour, are all great ways to keep your mind and body active, and in tiptop condition.
