If you are a small growing business, increasing and maintaining high levels of productivity is essential to your development.
Research has shown that a brighter, neater and more flexible office increases employee engagement and productivity.
Here are a few top tips for organising your office to encourage your team to go that ‘extra mile’
Space – an office with high ceilings creates a feeling of space, making it light and airy. Circulation of air is important to keep the team alert and focused. The presence of plants in the office also helps to keep oxygen levels in the room high as well as adding a calming atmosphere.
Design – choose furniture carefully and arrange it in a way that encourages collaboration. Rounded and curved furniture is more inviting rather than rectangular tables in rows.
Get creative – studies have shown that productivity increases when employees have ownership of their own work area. Encourage your staff to personalise their own area with posters, pictures or plants to make it a space that inspires them and that they want to spend time in.
Organisation – encourage everyone in the office to keep all documents and stationery in drawers or cupboards and have an ‘in tray’ on their desk to store documents they are currently working on. A clutter free space will help to keep everyone calm and focused on the task at hand.
As a business grows and develops it may require extra space for storing products or documents, but it may not be practical to allocate more space in the office.
