The New Year is upon us and with that comes resolutions and changes to make people better in themselves as well as in their workplace. As a business owner, there is no better time to improve your office layout to help boost the morale of your employees and shake those January blues away. Let’s take a closer look at how to achieve this, below.
For good productivity within your office, it is suggested that you have a central hub for your employees to communicate with one another. An ideal solution for this is to have a kitchen or a dedicated area for making tea. After all, communication is a human need and small breaks that allow your employees to have a chat will improve work efficiency in your workplace.
Therefore, if you don’t already have a central hub, install one in 2019 and give your workers an exciting new area in the office to enjoy and break the workday up with. Additionally, if you already have a kitchen, revamp it, by adding new kitchen appliances and making it more appealing.
Improve Your Technology
If you want your employees to be able to reach the best of their ability, it may mean that you need to update and improve the technology in the office. Having up-to-date technology means that your employees can do their jobs properly and won’t have to cut corners or make compromises in exchange for not having the best technology to do the job.
Break Out Spaces
If the majority of the workday is spent staring at screens all day, it can become tedious for your workers and cause them to get tired. Therefore, create a break out space where they can go to reenergise and refocus. You will find that from this, the productivity levels in the office will increase and your employees will be much more efficient.
If you want to boost your employee’s morale, especially during the dull periods of the year, then we suggest that you add some engaging interior to your workspace. With the days being dark and miserable and only walls and computers for your staff to look at, you need to make the most of your space to make it a more interesting environment to work within. This includes adding posters, inspirational quotes, newsletters and whatever you deem suitable for your office.
What’s more, by incorporating some greenery and nature into your office, you can, in fact, boost the productivity levels by a big 15%.
This idea isn’t always an option for every office, however, if you can create more natural light for your office, it will improve the mood and wellbeing of your employees. So, the more natural light you can expose your staff too, the better the productivity will be.
Enough Office Space
You need to ensure that your employees each have enough space. If they feel cramped then they will be distracted and won’t be able to focus as well.
As you can see, there are a number of ways that you can improve your office layout in 2019 to boost the morale of your employees and increase productivity. What will you change first?Previous Next
