The average person spends nearly 50 hours a year buying drinks at the bar during the working day.

A survey of 2,000 on-site employees found that it takes about 16 minutes to leave their desk, buy a drink and return, but with three such trips a week, employees end up missing an entire workweek a year .

However, having a favorite beverage on hand can help kickstart the day. To start the working day, people usually get organized (60%), sip their favorite drink (59%) and check their email (55%).

While a cup of hot coffee (66%) is the most popular first drink of the day, participants also prefer cold beverages such as iced coffee (47%), water (45%) and flavored water (30%).

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of multi-beverage system maker Flavia, the survey also found that there may be a link between beverage preference and productivity.

Over a third (37%) of respondents would like to be able to prepare hot and cold drinks and more than a quarter (26%) wish they could prepare different types of drinks at work, said Camille Vareille, VP, Head of Marketing Americas, Lavazza Group.

The money spent on drinks also adds up quickly. While at the bar, the average American purchases about 2.5 drinks, totaling about $16 per visit. With more than three coffee shop visits a week, that equates to over $2,800 a year.

According to respondents, 46% of respondents said they would go back to work at the office for the free drinks.

The survey revealed that nearly 87 percent of respondents commuted to the office two to three days a week. More than eight out of 10 employees said having free drinks as a workplace perk would make them feel valued, and offering free drinks was the most requested perk for encouraging employees to work from an office. Investing in a range of on-site beverages can not only save employees time and money, but also help bring them back to the office, Vareille added.
