The recent heatwave introduced scorching temperatures that were once unheard of in the UK. But as scientists warn that the climate crisis means these could soon become normality for us, we must all try and adapt where we can.
The Express Refreshments Micro Market is a modern on-site refreshment solution that offers a refreshing alternative to old fashioned solutions. Encouraging your staff to stay on site for their breaks carries a lot of benefits and as temperatures get warmer, it could be just what is needed.
With temperatures topping 40 degrees in some parts of the country last week, a national emergency was declared constituting of a serious threat to public health.
Even those deemed fit and healthy were not spared from the warning. Staying cool and hydrated was vital for everyone, meaning only travel if absolutely necessary and avoid physical exercise during the hottest points of the day.
We often find that our Micro Market customers are situated in very remote locations, which is why this on-site refreshment hub is so appealing. For those businesses that don’t have a satisfactory solution on site, they were instead having to force many of their staff off premises and into the heatwave.
This could potentially be very dangerous.
Staying indoors is far safer. It is believed that 58% of UK businesses now utilise air-con units in their offices, which is of course a valuable commodity on a very hot day.
The Micro Market is open and available 24/7, which means staff can head down whenever they need a break. You’re not forced into heading off site when the temperatures are slightly cooler.
Micro Markets for West Midlands businesses.
We design, create, and operate Micro Markets for businesses across the West Midlands and beyond, with our serviced locations including Birmingham, Telford, Stoke-on-Trent, Worcester, and Gloucester.
A Micro Market is a convenient on-site refreshment solution that saves your staff having to head off site for their break, which reduces lost work time, improves wellness, and boosts staff retention.
The pain points we often hear about within our target market are staff having to walk or drive a long way to the nearest high street or convenience store. In today’s modern world, where employee wellness is high on the agenda, this can have a catastrophic impact on attracting key talent to work for your business, especially in extreme weather!
Every worker is different, but one aspect that connects us all at work is our need for refreshments, whether that be tea, coffee, water, food, or snacks. The Micro Market is your refreshment solution that can suit your available space, whether that be a few fridges or a grand solution that can replace a canteen.
It can stock a huge range of products including impulse buys, healthier items, and even fresh bean coffee. The market operates totally self-service, saving you money on having to employ a cashier.
In fact, the Micro Market could even save you money overall when compared to similar refreshment solutions such as a canteen or if you use contract caterers.
These are genuine benefits that more and more businesses around the West Midlands are experiencing.
Choose a Micro Market to cover every eventuality.
Whether the UK experiences scorching summer temperatures or bitter conditions in the winter months, the Micro Market provides everything your staff need in the comfort and safety of the workplace.
Head to our website to see the broad range of Micro Markets that we designed, created, and operate ourselves. You’ll be surprised at what a Micro Market can entail, emphasising how this is a truly personal solution designed to suit every business no matter how big or small.
