In celebration of National Coffee Day today (September 29), Staples surveyed a number of office workers to find out just how serious they are about their coffee habits. It came as no real big surprise to learn that the workforce loves their coffee. In fact, 37 percent of workers say they can’t even get dressed for work without their first cup of coffee. And, nearly half consume at least three cups of coffee each day.
In addition, workers revealed that there are a number of tasks they can’t handle before their first cup of the day:
- 44 percent said they can’t have a conversation or commute without coffee
- 40 percent said they can’t check email before their morning brew
- 38 percent said they can’t eat a meal before consuming coffee
For a significant percentage of the workforce, one cup each day will not suffice. Over 57 percent need at least two cups of coffee to feel productive and alert. In today’s always-on work culture, coffee has become even more essential. When asked if they had to give up social media or coffee forever, three out of four employees said they would give up social media instead of coffee.
