How Vending Machines Can Support Staff Wellness Goals

Published: 29th April 2024

Staff wellness is now a big priority for many businesses. It can not only help to support your employees and show how much you value them, but also earning their loyalty and promoting their well-being can be hugely beneficial to your business.

So, how do you do it? Before you start booking hot yoga classes and meditation sessions, you might want to think about installing some vending machines. Find out why…

Healthy choices

When you employees set themselves wellness goals, this will most often be with the aim of losing weight or getting fitter and healthier. This is not always easy to achieve whilst at work, as food and beverage options can be limited, and tend not to be the healthiest. Whilst vending machines were loaded with high fat, high sugar and high calorie foods, they have now come on in leaps and bounds to help you offer some healthier options.

These can now be packed full of fruit, yoghurt, salads, soups and many other healthy foods that help your staff to make good choices for themselves. When they know that they have these options at work, they can reach and maintain their wellness goals more easily and feel as though you have their best interests at heart.


The key to almost any wellness goal is hydration. It improves the way that both body and mind work, meaning that it can have an impact on both physical and mental wellness.

However, at work we can often become dehydrated thanks to the combination of dry atmospheres, work pressures and the call of the coffee pot. By offering better hydration options through vending machines and water coolers, your staff can ensure that they remain properly hydrated all day.

This not only helps them in their personal goals, but it can also boost cognitive functions and productivity levels.

Company culture

We spend huge amounts of our lives at work, so it is important that we feel happy and comfortable whilst we are there in order to support our well-being. The culture of a company can have a big effect on this, and installing healthy, balanced vending machines can help to foster a healthier and more positive atmosphere in the workplace.

When employees feel as though they are being taken care of whilst they are at work, they will return the favour. They are often more motivated and productive, and they tend to be more loyal, meaning that staff retention rates improve.


One of the biggest advantages that vending machines can bring is convenience. They are quick and easy to use, and most now accept contactless forms of payment. This means that employees can get their hands on the food or drink that they want in just a matter of minutes, meaning they waste less work time, or have the opportunity to make a proper use of their breaks.

This allows them to relax, reset their brains and build bonds with other staff members, leaving them refreshed and ready to return to work.

The convenience that vending machines can deliver should not be underestimated, as they can remove a lot of time pressures from the day, meaning that employees can feel a little less stressed and are better able to remain happy and positive at work.

Vending machines have been around for many years, but they are now evolving in a way that can help to make workplaces better for everyone. Staff wellness can take many different forms, and vending machines can be one small but easy step towards supporting your employees and helping them to achieve their goals, whatever they may be.
