Our employees are the driving force in what keeps companies growing, so when you invest in the furniture and design of your space, you want to keep the ultimate goals of your business in mind. Effective office design includes creating spaces that increase productivity amongst their staff.
If you want to add to your bottom line, it is important to give employees a workspace that empowers them so that they can perform at an optimal level. Here are 3 office design ideas that will maximize productivity levels of your employees.
Optimize your space
Flexibility is the key in optimizing your space. Employees need different spaces for which to do different tasks. A one size fits all approach will not work. Just because a game room and indoor gardens worked for one company, doesn’t mean it will work for you. It is important when considering your space, to keep your employees, the types of tasks they do and their needs in mind. Even though most workspaces have become more open, many employees still complain about overcrowding. Your employees need to be able to freely work and move without disturbing others because overcrowding in offices spaces is linked to poor employee performance.
Use Furniture to Your Advantage
Furniture is an investment that your employees will thank you for. In your workspace, you should purchase the highest quality furniture that you can afford because it will allow your employees to work more comfortably and be less prone to common workplace ailments like neck and back problems. Furniture should also be adjustable and flexible. Additionally, modular furniture allows for reconfiguration in order to have privacy or collaborate when needed. This will create spaces that can be adapted to whatever is required. Demountable glass walls can be used reduce noise or open up a space when necessary.
Make your space legible
When your employees enter your space, they look for markers that indicate the intended use of the space. Flexibility in a space is important, but sometimes it can become confusing simply due to the number of options available. When your workspace is legible, your employees will quickly and easily know exactly how to navigate the space. The less energy your employees have to exert figuring out where and how to do the work they need to accomplish, the more productive they will be.
