Is your office fitout a reason for staff to stay, or leave?

In this modern age, knowledge workers are becoming more valuable than ever before.

However, getting (and keeping) the best talent is getting harder and ‘where’ someone works is becoming more about the office and amenities than the name on the door.  Savvy employees are more informed than ever and are increasingly shopping around for the best environment in which to work. 

If your staff are looking longingly at your competitors, you might want to consider introducing these 8 elements in your office, pronto!

  1. Purpose:

    make the ‘why’ of your work visible in your workplace and tailor the space to meet staff needs.

  2. Collaboration:

    keep your staff connected to each through interactive zones and adaptable furniture options to boost learning opportunities, comradery, and outcomes.

  3. Fitout:

    develop a modern, bright and ergonomic space which can be configured to suit a variety of tasks.

  4. Incentives:

    staff will work the extra hours as long as the benefits go both ways.

  5. Flexibility:

    develop mobile options and let employees shape work around their other lifestyle committments.

  6. Development:

    articulate a pathway and provide aspirational opportunities for those looking to progress.

  7. Technology:

    make the ‘doing’ easier through the use of easily accessible agile technologies.

  8. Benefits: 

    invest in the wellbeing of your staff to show them you care.  Start talking gym memberships and health insurance packages to see your employee’s eyes light up!
