If you need that morning cup of joe every day to get you going, you are not alone.  According to a survey by Dunkin’ Donuts and CareerBuilder, nearly half of all U.S. workers (46%) claim that they are less productive without coffee.  (Note to office manager:  time to upgrade that coffee pot!)  Other key coffee consumption trends in the workplace include:

Coffee has helped younger workers, aged 18 to 24, with their careers by providing an opportunity to network with other coworkers.

The region with the most workday coffee drinkers is in the Northeast, with 49% of employees admitting to needing coffee while on the job. And for some, one cup is not enough!  The majority of coffee drinkers (61%) drink two cups or more each workday.

The survey even breaks down by occupation who needs their coffee the most to keep their workday running. 

  1. Scientist / lab technician
  2. Marketing / Public Relations Professional
  3. Education Administrator
  4. Editor / Writer
  5. Healthcare Administrator
  6. Physician
  7. Food Preparer
  8. Professor
  9. Social Worker
  10. Financial Professional
  11. Personal Caretaker
  12. Human Resources Benefits Coordinator
  13. Nurse
  14. Government Professional
  15. Skilled Tradesperson

So next time you need a favor from your favorite HR Benefits Coordinator, try taking them a cup of coffee (with or without cream and sugar) and you might be surprised how productive they are!
