With human capital emerging as key success drivers for a business, there is a lot of premium being placed on how they are seated at an office workstation. The overall environment within which the employee works has proven to have a significant impact on his/her productivity. Hence, proper office design is coming up frequently as a key area to focus on as a part of the business strategies.
Different colors evoke a different sense of action and perception for employees. Red and orange fit better with energetic areas within the premises. They denote action and stimulation of ideas to foster creativity and innovation. On the other hand, blue and green are toned down colors (what we call as low wave length colors). These are suited for areas like the common room, waiting room, and meeting rooms.
Good quality furniture is an investment of a lifetime for an office owner. It ensures a higher level of productivity and lesser physical strain on hands, neck, or shoulders. It is common for adding a lot of adjusting factors within the furniture design (adjustable keyboard tray, adjustable chair height etc.). This allows every employee to fine tune the workstation as per his/ her specific need or comfort level.
Ample open space needs to be dedicated to informal brainstorming. Other than the meeting rooms, these informal spaces really get the creative juices flowing and adds to the overall productivity levels of the employees. These brainstorming hubs act as relaxation points as well as interaction pathways for minds to initiate conversations, get ideas, and be inspired.
Instead of the dreaded grey walls, try to liven it up with a bright splash of colors that can turn a frown into a smile. Employee who comes in with a sulk can be a great productivity killer. He suggests going for inspirational quotes to perk up employees, along with using subtle yet bright corporate colors (without overdoing it of course!)
Proper ventilation, temperature controlled environment, and minimal pollutants hanging in the air are sure pointers to take office productivity to the next level of employee satisfaction. In addition to adding a signature to all branches of the office, consistent smell and good air quality can bolster positive attitudes.
