Jan. 22, 2015, Waterbury, VT – In a recent Harris
survey commissioned by Keurig Green Mountain, office workers say coffee plays
an important part in success in the workplace, often sparking creativity and helping to build relationships.

In the Coffee Break Survey, coffee was identified as key in
securing some of offices’ best business deals, networking, and important to office
workers being their best. In fact, coffee drinkers are more likely to identify
themselves as “professionally successful” than their non-coffee drinking
counterparts.

The survey, which polled 843 office workers in December
2014, suggests that good coffee in the workplace has a variety of surprising
social and professional benefits.

For many office workers (89 per cent), a good cup of coffee
can make their entire workday better. Without their daily cup of coffee, coffee
drinkers can feel a range of negative emotions – exhausted (36 per cent),
irritable (35 per cent), unproductive (30 per cent), disorganized (20 per cent)
or forgetful (14 per cent). The majority (85 per cent) also say having coffee
with a client or colleague can be a great way to build relationships. And while
the majority of coffee drinkers (84 per cent) agree having good coffee in the
office is an important perk, over half (52 per cent) wish their company would
get better-quality coffee for their office.

“Coffee brings people together and is a great way to connect
with co-workers. Having good coffee in an office is an easy way to keep
employees happy and as this recent Keurig survey shows, it can also contribute
to productivity and success,” said Nicole Williams, Career Expert and Founder
of WORKS, in a news release from the company.

A coffee break can bring individuals together – 1 in 5
office workers (19 per cent) say their colleagues do their best brainstorming
or collaborating around the office coffee machine. Additionally, office workers
say they like to visit the office coffee machine to catch up with co-workers
(37 per cent); interact with their boss in a more casual way (16 per cent);
brainstorm or collaborate with others on a project (13 per cent); or spark
their own creativity (nine per cent).
