In a year, employees are likely to spend more than 1,500 hours in their workspace, so it is important to create a workspace that will inspire and bring happiness to your employees. Because a well-designed workspace is a major factor in a business’ success, a space that engages your employees, you will position your company for growth.
To design for business growth, flexibility is the key.
To create a functional and versatile environment, so that your workspace can adapt to the changing needs of your business, consider including the following in your workspace:
Reconfigurable workstations/furniture: Having flexible workstations and furniture that can change from big to small or collaborative to individual space will suit all aspects of your business. You can use desks that fold away, tables that double as conference rooms and eating areas and modular furniture with wheels that can adapt and change in a moment’s notice.
Moveable Walls: Are cost-effective, cause minimal disruption during installation and provide your space with tons of flexibility.
Sit to Stand Workstations: Are another great way to add flexibility for your growing business. Not only will the provide different ways to work, but they also bring an added health benefit to get your staff up and moving throughout the day.
Finally, when your business is growing and you are designing your workspace for that future growth, you want to make sure that the design reflects your company’s culture and mission. When your culture is on display, not only will it attract the right candidates for your company, but it will create a powerful sense of identity for your employees.
