Staying happy and motivated in the workplace is very important and often the design and layout of your office can affect the mood of your employees. If you're trying to boost the wellbeing of your employees with an office fit out service, here are some helpful tips to give you a helping hand.

  • Bring Mother Nature Into The Workplace
    If your workplace is starting to feel dull, add some life into your workplace with plants!

    Plants come in various different shapes, sizes and colours. You could include flowers with colours to match the colour schemes of your business, or you could go the extra mile and include a living wall! If you would like more information regarding living walls, you can read our blog post, Consider A “Living Wall" For Your Next Office Refurbishment.
  • Consider Acoustics!
    Office spaces can be noisy environments: employees tapping away on keyboards, workers talking to clients on the phone and other noises can be very distracting for some employees.

    One method of tackling noise issues is the use of acoustics! Acoustic solutions can come in various different forms, for example you can use acoustic panelling to reduce the noise in a room. These panels can come in various different colours, so you can use a colour scheme that flows with your business's colour scheme.
  • Choose An Office Design Appropriate To Your Workforce
    There is no such thing as a one size fits all office.

    If your workforce is fuelled by creative collaboration, perhaps using an office fit out service to transform your workspace into a hot-desking open plan office could be a great way to take advance of the collaborative nature of your workforce.

    However, if your employees thrive when given the privacy to complete their tasks in a relaxing and calm environment, an office fit out service could help you create a fantastic working environment that meets the needs of your employees.
  • Customise The Workspace!
    If you have multiple departments in your office, customise them!

    This doesn't just mean change the colour scheme for each department. Think about the needs of each department, for example the sales department might benefit from acoustics.

    By considering the needs of each department; instead of looking for a one size fits all approach for all of your departments, you can meet their individual needs.
  • Make Your Workplace Interactive And Idea Friendly!
    This doesn't require any groundbreaking technology; you could include large chalkboards or whiteboards on your walls so that employees can write ideas down and help each other with collaborative projects, without having to move into a meeting room.
  • Make Sure That Your Office Space Is Comfortable To Work In
    Creating a stylish office space is very important, however you should prioritise comfort over style!

    Let's not forget that discomfort is indeed a distraction! If your employees are sat at uncomfortable desks for many hours a day that's a lot of potential to be distracted. Comfort is more than just a nice chair, it could also include changes in uniform or the dress code to allow your employees more comfort in the workplace.

    You should also make sure that your chairs and desks are at the appropriate height for the tasks that your employees are doing. You could also give your employees the option of sitting or standing whilst working with sit/stand desks.

    The choice of sit/stand desks can also be beneficial for health reasons. As written on uk “Studies have linked excessive sitting with being overweight and obese, type 2 diabetes, some types of cancer, and early death."
  • Create A Space For Breaks
    Create a space where your employees can enjoy their breaks together. This can give your employees a chance to interact and bond with each other; giving employees from different departments a chance to socialise together.

    However, it is important that you tailor the break room to the needs of your employees. If nobody at your office enjoys table tennis, installing a table tennis table after an office fit out might not be a good idea. Perhaps you could discover what your employees want by asking them to anonymously add suggestions to a suggestion box?
