How A Change In Office Furniture Can Improve Worker Productivity
When you first get started as a business, there are often sets of mismatched chairs, cubicles, and desks from different eras that dominate the office landscape. As you grow, one of the things that is useful to keep in mind is that when you do have an opportunity to create an appropriate furniture layout and design, better ergonomics and increased worker productivity will follow.
Here are some ways that a change in office furniture can improve employee performance:
No matter your business, it is important to have an office space that lends itself to efficiency and productivity. A design that provides organization coupled with a clean environment reinforces workflow and motivation. Certain desks, chairs, and other office furniture can serve a particular office space better than others. Which furniture to choose depends on the size, shape, specific office layout, etc.
According to a 2008 Napo Survey of 400 consumers, 91 percent said they would be more effective and efficient if their workspace was better organized.
When you work with us, you will be able to see how well the integration of leading desk and storage spaces can keep you organized, which in-turn, will promote productivity.
More aligned to the employees’ needs:
Apple recently opened a new $5 billion campus. An important part of their planning was to create an open concept that promotes team collaboration. However, the corporation failed to acknowledge the privacy needs of their employees, and the overall design wound up not working for the company. Employees were unhappy because of the lack of privacy integrated into the open floor plan.
Business owners need to understand the preferences of their employees and which office design works best for them. Not every company needs an open floor plan. Maybe cubicles will be better suited for you.
As many workers spend 8 hours at their desks, most companies also provide open spaces that can be used for conversation, lunches, and team collaboration. Another way of getting a feel for what the latest design trends are in terms of open space, is to look online at a workspace office that hosts several companies at once. In order to be successful, they not only need to show the latest commercial office workstations, they also need to have a spectacular community space.
