As employees spend most of their time in the office, their work environment has a remarkable influence on their happiness, focus and productivity. As such, having a well-designed office and a great workplace culture can encourage your staff to perform better, helping your company grow.
To improve the look of your office whilst boosting your employees’ drive, here are some office fit out design ideas to consider.
Turn your office into a green space
One effective way to improve productivity is to bring nature into the office. Putting indoor plants in your office can help improve air quality, increase brain activity and lower stress hormones.
It would also be great if your workplace allows natural light to enter freely as it improves the energy of your employees. You can do this by opening blinds, using clear partitions and minimising the use of cubicles.
Introduce a new coat of paint
Colours can change the morale and affect the well-being of your staff. To promote productivity and calmness, use blue and green shades. To improve creativity, use an optimistic colour like yellow. You may use red if you want to stimulate emotion and passion. Remember that each hue has a different effect.
A change of scenery
It would be stressful for your employees if they’re stuck in their desk the whole day. Offer them flexibility by providing them adequate space to move around. Introduce an open plan to foster collaboration and communication between your staff. Create lounge areas, dining rooms or breakout rooms where they can relax and take a break. By making minimal changes in your office, you’re helping your employees boost their efficiency, productivity and creativity.
