Workplace design has the most significant impact on the level of employee productivity and motivation. With this in mind, how exactly can you create a workplace environment in which promotes the highest levels of productivity? Here are some tips Wurkspace 7 has put together to assist you with your workplace transformation.
Designing for your staff
Many work environments find that the main complaint from workers is the lack of privacy. This facilitates various issues, such as the decrease of concertation, too many options for interruptions, no room for team collaboration, and no sense of workplace culture.
As your employees spend most of their time within the office, it is critical to implement an office design that caters to their working style, role, and feeling of belonging, whilst facilitating privacy and spaces for collaboration.
Comfort in the company
At Wurkspace 7, we often hear the same complaints in traditional office designs: Uncomfortable furniture and harsh overhead lighting.
The employees’ comfort is a basic need to implement in the modern working environment. Introducing new levels of comfort and ergonomics will boost productivity and overall employee satisfaction and retention.
Out with the old and in with the new
Traditional organisations created office spaces built on ego and hierarchy, ultimately creating segregation between employees, supervisors and executives.
In the modern workplace, organisations are losing that old way of thinking, and are focusing on the new, collaborative office environments. The move away from cubicles and embracement of open spaces with specified focus areas encourages employees to work together and move freely without judgement.
There are many more tips that we can list of for hours, however these are three of the most important to consider. Want to know more? Contact Wurkspace 7 today to find out how we can help your workplace transformation.
