Offering unlimited still and sparkling water can be an integral part of a successful Employee Health & Wellness Program. Introducing a Vivreau water program into the workplace makes water easily accessible and encourages employees to choose water over less healthy beverages. With the many benefits of water consumption, companies gain from having a healthier workforce, resulting in reduced employee benefits costs, reduced absenteeism, and higher productivity.
Vivreau is a proud partner of Drink Up. Drink Up is a collaboration to encourage everyone to drink more water, and was formed between the Partnership for a Healthier America – which works with the private sector and PHA Honorary Chairwoman Michelle Obama to make the healthy choice the easy choice for busy parents and families – and stakeholders across the private and public sectors who are dedicated to encouraging people to drink more water more often. You are what you drink and when you drink water, you Drink Up! To Learn more visit ahealthieramerica.org.
