Having a great workspace improves efficiency plus so much more…
Do you want your employees to feel like they are looking forward to showing up for another day at work or simply accept that they show up because they have to? If your answer is the former, then a good hard look at your workspace may reveal more than you think.
There have been a variety of studies that consider the connection between a more engaged and productive workforce and their surroundings such as Gensler’s https://www.gensler.com/uploads/document/337/file/2013_US_Workplace_Survey_07_15_2013.pdf
This study in particular highlighted that a workspace should have four key areas for employees to Focus, Collaborate, Learn and Socialise. Even in the smallest of workspaces this is possible with some clever planning.
Consider – does your space reflect the culture that you want to create in your business?
As your business may grow and change, you should consider upgrading and changing your workspace to reflect how your employees actually work. There are some factors that play an important part, like making the most of natural light and ventilation where you can, planning the layout of your furniture to optimise space and using colour and wall graphics to brighten a space.
Not only could your office or reception space be the first impression for a potential customer, this is a representation of your brand and values which employees want to feel proud of being a part of.
