The way your office is set up plays an important part in how productive your employees are. Every employee has different needs, so communicating with them before working on your new layout and design aesthetic is key for future productivity. By listening to and taking your teams input into consideration, you’re allowing them to feel more apart of the team instead of just some employee who gets bossed around all the time. Giving them a sense of ownership and pride on a project will boost morale and make sure your employees stay engaged in current and future projects.
By having multiple workstations, not only in the ‘office’ itself but areas including the break room and conference room, allows your employees to hop around week by week avoiding the feeling of being stuck in a rut! (stuck in one place that never changes.)
It is clear that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution that will work for all businesses, but understanding your employees and the way they work can help you create an office layout and environment that will increase productivity and maintain a workplace full of happy campers!
