In the corporate world, the word “productivity” is thrown around a lot as something a company wants its employees to strive for. However, most of these businesses don’t realize that their office layout plays a key role in determining the productivity of their employees. An office space designed for the well-being of employees will see greater productivity, creativity, and enthusiasm for work. But how do you create that in your office?
Open Floor Plan
When designing an office floor plan, you want to do it in a way that makes your employees excited to come to work. It’s important to give each employee their own personal space that they can customize how they want, whether that be with family pictures or notes that they can leave overnight. Having a healthy combination of personalizable, private spaces and an open floor plan offers a space for employees to walk around and socialize as well as a place that they can go to and concentrate when they need to will help boost their productivity at work.
Unique Meeting/Hangout Spaces
Following the open floor plan style, having open-air meeting rooms and workspaces are a great way to give employees the option to collaborate. It’s important to create an environment that people feel comfortable in, and that can come in many different forms depending on the nature of the company and its employees. Instead of the old “water cooler” break room, this could be a couch and a few chairs where people can go to take a break from work. Having these unique spaces in your office helps add variety to the office, which promotes productivity compared to a normal, bland layout.
In today’s world of constantly improving technology and online work, it’s crucial to balance the amount of technology in your office. If there are TVs all over the place, it could be a distraction. However, having desks with multiple monitors or meeting rooms with the latest tech can improve your employees’ productivity. It can be difficult to know what audio/visual technology will be beneficial to your office and how to integrate it in a smart way so that employees get the most out of it, but we can help!
