Why a Well-Designed Workspace May Help You Be Productive

Office Furniture

Business professionals, listen up. You may be missing out on a simple office hack that will transform your team's productivity. It's not a new tablet; it's not the hottest app or the trendiest wearable tech; it's simply—wait for it—your office environment.

Changing your office environment can invigorate your employees, lighten moods, increase productivity, and keep your team healthier. Don't believe us? Read on and you'll see why.

Workplace Environment Matters

Studies have proven time and again that the environment we work in has a significant impact on our mood, health, and productivity. In fact, studies suggest that a workplace's physical environment is the number one factor that impacts productivity. So why is the workplace environment often ignored?

Call it cost-cutting, call it going with the flow, or call it tradition, most companies simply don't have a plan for designing their office space. But with the proven benefits of a well-designed office, how can you afford not to make your space inviting?

How to Boost Productivity and Employee Morale

The good news is it's fairly simple to transform your office into an inviting, productive atmosphere. Here are our top tips.

  1. Bring in some green. Studies have shown that plants in the office boost moods and improve employee health and air quality.
  2. Invest in lighting. Is your eye starting to twitch from the harsh, flickering overhead fluorescent lighting in your office? Natural light bulbs and windows make a big difference.
  3. Get the right furniture. Ergonomic chairs, matching desks, and other high-quality furniture can make all the difference.
  4. Color coordinate. Are your office walls a lovely shade of Medical Clinic White? Maybe it's time to repaint a warm shade of brown or a soothing gray. It's an affordable change with a big impact.
