Office Design Hacks to Keep Your Employees Happy

Believe it or not, the design of your office is a tool to enhance the productivity of your employees. We ve mentioned it countless times before, and we re mentioning it again; the way that your office is designed will greatly impact how well your business will perform, engage and communicate.

At Officescape, we pride ourselves on helping businesses realise the potential of the office space that they have through our office refurbishment in London1 and we have a few design tips for keeping your employees happy and engaged in their work.

Departmentalise the Design

There s nothing worse than having an office space which doesn t cater to the needs of the department which is situated in it.

Whether this be having an open plan design in a creative department who need to collaborate and discuss ideas, but a closed, cubicle based office to house your admin team, make sure the design you are implementing is a design that allows the department to work to their full potential.

It s much easier to create a space for a department than get a department to work in an inadequate space.

The Great Glass Office

Nothing beats access to natural light in an office space. It makes the office seem much brighter and more vibrant and brings a little bit of the outside in.

It even boosts employee productivity2 and helps them sleep better at night, so not only will they produce higher quality work you ll also give them an extra 46 minutes of sleep a night3!

Multiple Communal Areas

Implementing areas where colleagues can sit and collaborate on work is a great way to keep them happy.

However, people come up with innovative ideas and collaborate differently depending on the environment they are in.

This is why it s important to have a few communal areas in your building to allow for these different styles of working to play to your advantage.

Have a bright, bold open communal room with sofas and bean bags for your more creative minds and smaller, neutrally decorated rooms for those who prefer to sit and work in privacy away from their office so that they won t be disturbed.

Wonderful Walls

Why have trouble thinking what to do with your walls when you can turn them into a tool to enhance the productivity of your employees?

Create whiteboard walls which allow your staff to write notes and inspire others in meeting environments- after all, ideas can become contagious, especially when the idea is there on the wall for everyone to see!
