The office environment and how well employees function in it plays a major role in whether or not a business succeeds. A well-designed office keeps employees comfortable and encourages them to perform their best. Research suggests that the right office interiors can boost productivity by 80%.
Question is, though: what are the elements of proper office design? As an employer, you probably find yourself constantly thinking about how to create an office environment that will foster creativity and productivity.
In our many years of experience handling office renovations, we have seen many employers struggle with this question. Our answer remains the same: office partitioning and fit outs. If you are wondering how this can contribute to employee creativity and productivity, here is a quick guide:
1. A Sense of Concentration
Partitions foster a sense of concentration as they effectively separate employees from each other. There is less distraction in this set-up as cubicles control noise from spreading through the workplace. When employees make and receive calls, they will not interrupt others. As a result, employees can focus on what needs to be done. With this, the business achieves effectiveness and efficiency in its over-all operations.
Privacy matters in the workplace. When privacy is established, employees feel respected and more secure. Office partitioning allows them to personalise their space and turn it into one they are comfortable working in. Not having to worry about privacy and security issues will allow your staff to concentrate and accomplish goals.
Office design must be professional and stylish, but comfortable at the same time. What you may not know is that the physical appearance of your office affects the mood of your employees towards work. A proper fitout can create the atmosphere of professionalism.
