Get the balance right with creative design and modular office solutions.
Poor concentration can be one of the biggest productivity killers in your workplace. But with such a diverse workforce of differing ages, backgrounds, and skills, it can be hard to eliminate distractions in the office. And that’s just the beginning. When it comes to creating the perfect working atmosphere, you have a lot of things to take into consideration. Here are a few ideas that might boost efficiency and productivity:
1. Spice things up with variations in design and layout
Different people are inspired by different environments, which is why you want to offer a range of atmospheres in your building. After all, variety is the spice of life, and it can lead to a more harmonious workplace!
Some of your workers are going to respond best to an open floor plan—they thrive on the sense of teamwork gained in this atmosphere. But there are others who prefer a more personal working space. That’s why setting up private work areas, including temporary offices and cubicles, is a great way to get the best from all of your employees.
The best news of all is that you can use temporary, modular walls so you’re never restricted to the original layout. Besides, full-scale renovations are usually expensive!
2. Establish private working areas
Don’t want to create dedicated cubicles or individual offices? There’s nothing wrong with that. But keep in mind that you still might have workers who will really excel in a more private, distraction-free environment. Here’s a quick solution: just create private areas throughout the open space. Nooks, hideaways, or whatever you want to call them, they’re going to be in high demand! You can easily section off smaller areas with beautiful architectural walls. They’ll keep the distractions to a minimum without ruining the smooth look and feel of your open office.
3. Consider a cafe
Have you ever headed to the local coffee shop outside of work hours, only to discover you’ve just had the most productive span of work in recent memory? For some people, a cafe environment really amps up productivity and focus. Whether it’s because of the light, white noise in a coffee shop, the energizing coffee, the powering snacks, or just the cool vibe, it’s a great place to get some work done. Don’t let your employees go hungry for motivation to perform their best: think about adding a cafe to your office design.
