Things to Consider

    • Your company needs a motivated workforce for your business to succeed!
    • Incentives and bonuses are great but may not be enough to inspire your employees to want to work.
    • Increasing amounts of research show that efficient and inviting office spaces have a significant impact on productivity, creativity, and engagement.
    • According to Genler’s 2013 U.S. Workplace Survey, only 1 in 4 U.S. workers are in optimal workplace environments.
    • The Office for National Statistics states that productivity is key in measuring the economic efficiency and growth of your business.

Five Steps to Create a More Productive Workplace

1. Furniture Facelift Thought: An ergonomic environment can improve worker productivity by up to 11%.

    • Ergonomics – An applied science that coordinates the design of devices, systems, and physical working conditions with the capacities and requirements of the worker.
    Fact: For employees who work primarily in an office setting, 95% of their workdays are spent in front of the computer.
    • This can lead to negative health conditions, including musculoskeletal disorders such as carpel tunnel syndrome.
    Action: What can you do to keep your workforce healthy?
    • Invest in quality furniture.
      • This can save you money on insurance and reduce the number of sick days.
    • Provide different options for workstations by replacing office furniture.
      • Large tables and open spaces can inspire creativity and collaboration.
      • Smaller desks with lots of privacy can create a distraction-free workspace.

2. Brighten Things Up Thought: Integrate as much natural lighting as possible!

    • You will notice the increase in productivity and decrease in electric bills.
    Fact: Lighting affects alertness.
    • Artificial and dim lighting can cause eye strain and headaches.
    • Fluorescent lighting reduces the ability to focus on the computer screen.
    Action: Let the light in with an open floor plan.
    • Increase the number of glass walls and decrease the number of cubicles. 

3. Smart Arrangements

Thought: How do the departments in your office interact? Fact: Each department utilizes a different style of communication to get work done accurately and efficiently.

  • Workspace layouts should adapt to the workers, not the other way around.

Action: Innovative, task-specific work stations can be a great alternative to structured cubicles.

  • Create a space that reflects your corporate culture (e.g., autonomy and flexibility).
  • Provide workspace options that accommodate different personalities and work styles.

4. Solid Storage Thought: Adequate storage is a crucial part of efficiency and workflow. Fact: On average, an employee will spend more than four hours each week trying to locate necessary documents. Action: Update the organization and accessibility of your filing systems.

  • Storage needs vary by industry and department and must therefore be task-specific.

5. Innovative Extras Value Employee Opinions

  • Include employees in the design process.
  • Get employee opinions on optimal layouts for each department.

Promote a Healthy Balance

  • Show employees that you care about their well-being.
  • Provide a lounge area, a coffee bar, or exercise equipment.
  • Encourage family time; discourage excessive overtime.

Attract New Talent

  • Updating your office space can maximize your current talent as well as attract and retain new talent.
  • An inviting interior can give your company a competitive edge in recruiting.
