3 Ways to Refresh your Office for Spring
Have you thought about making a change to your office? With a change in seasons fast approaching, now is a perfect time!
If you're ready to refresh your office for spring, it is important to focus on providing employees with an office space that inspires an innovative, productive and creative mindset. So, get started today, and find out three ways to refresh your office!
Improve Employee Workstations
It's not something that is regularly considered, but for the average employee sitting at a desk is the norm. Sitting for so many hours a day can lead to negative effects such as body aches and pains. These pains can cause employees to become more tired and result in less creativity and productivity. We advise providing employees with workstations to help them feel more comfortable; this can include a foot and backrest to provide employees with extra support to help with their posture. We also suggest providing employees with standing desks, as employees will be able to take a break from sitting and move more throughout the day. Alternating between standing and sitting will help eliminate posture issues that lead to body aches and pains, so employees will be able to finish their work without worrying about these pains.
Update your Technology
Utilizing the proper technology is a key aspect to the success of an organization. With spring on its way, we want you to think about if you have the right technology in place to ensure a productive and innovative workforce. We want you to consider if your technology is up to date - this can range from computer software to the computer itself. If you find your employees frustrated and slowed down by outdated technology, it may be time for a refresh, so employee productivity levels can increase. Now, we want you to think about any technological integrations you have or may be missing. For example, do you have the proper technological tools in place to have easy virtual meetings? If the answer is no, it's time for a technology refresh.
Provide a Flexible Workplace
Does the design of your office provide a collaborative company culture? Providing employees with an office space that has open and closed meeting rooms and conference rooms can help create a collaborative company culture that fosters creativity and innovation. It is also important to provide a flexible workplace in terms of allowing employees to work from home a few times a week. According to research by the Canada Life Group, employees who work from home rank their productivity levels as 7.7/10 compare to employees who work in an office who ranked their productivity levels to 6.5/10.
