Researchers have discovered sugar is the key to workplace productivity. Despite conflicting reports that state sugar should be consumed in moderation, reports indicate daily sweets (and lots of them) is paramount to achieving peak performance at the office.
But what is the preferred method of indulging your sweet tooth?
Researchers say it doesn’t really matter — candy bars, cake, ice cream, cookies — any delicious goody will increase serotonin, also referred to as ‘joy juice,’ causing employees to work faster and with more aptitude.
Have a crazy deadline to meet? No problem. Eat a donut. Need to get that report finished for your afternoon meeting? Grab a handful of gummy bears and have at it.
But what about the notorious midday sugar crash that is well known amongst working stiffs? According to Kids Who Know Co., some companies are combatting late day fatigue by filling the office watercooler with Kool-Aid.
Anytime a staffer feels the buzz start to fade, it is highly encouraged they break for a beverage with their favourite colleagues in tow - Watercooler chat has never sounded so sweet.
