The Modern Office Space
Customers and employees need to experience your organization’s unique culture upon entering your office door. Focus your designing effort on revealing your organization’s values and vision. No matter how small or large your firm or office space is, there are simple ways to update your company’s look and vibe.
Divide space accordingly
Traditionally the higher-ups get the biggest and best office space, claiming that corner office with a view for themselves, regardless of how much of the day they are physically present. Most other employees work in secluded cubicles. Try mixing it up! Determine workspace size by how much time the employee spends in the office. Re-dividing space may also give you the room you need to set up a few new collaborative spaces!
Whether for small impromptu meetings or for making a phone call, collaborate spaces provide your team members with a space other than their desks where they can be productive. Gone are the days where we punch in at 9am and stay seated in one place until 5pm. As an employer, it is your job to help the creative juices flow and a change of scenery during the workday will certainly help. Though you may not be able to get your hands on some of the privacy pods that Google offices use, It’ is still possible to designate some space for free thinking, brainstorming and collaboration.
Goodbye, White Walls.
Walking into a monochromatic office is like walking into a restaurant that only serves water. When adding color, don’t dive in halfheartedly. Instead, be bold. Studies show that companies that incorporate bright bursts of color into their office design have happier and more productive employees. This trick has the potential to meet any budget, either by painting one wall a bold and exciting hue, or incorporating a statement rug or couch.
