The modern world of business is dynamic and constantly evolving. Whilst this certainly creates a variety of exciting industries, it presents many organisations with certain challenges that can be extremely difficult to overcome. Sitting right at the heart of this incredibly complex business environment is the office space. Office design in London, acting as the centre of your business, has a major effect on every part of your company or organisation, particularly in the constantly evolving world.
The Key Trends Of Workplaces In 2016!
Organic And Natural Features Within The Workplace
Throughout the past year, businesses have started to realise that there are practical benefits to combining employees with natural environments. Even simple design features, including natural light and fresh air, can have a truly dramatic impact on employee health and mental wellbeing.
Access to these necessary ingredients will not only actively improve the morale of the workforce, but the day-to-day efficiency and workplace concentration. Any office interior design in London, or any other major city, which provides access to much-needed natural components can really enjoy a range of benefits almost instantly.
We predict that office designs throughout 2016 will make more of a move towards natural features; features which we have been promoting the benefits of for a while!
Agile And Comprehensive Working
As technology improves and archaic notions are left behind, 'work' is no longer a truly fixed place. Work, these days, can be anywhere and everywhere – organisations are no longer bound by the restrictions of the traditional 9-5, the traditional fragmented office space. Perhaps even more beneficial for businesses is the fact that neither are the business' employees.
The idea of traditional working hours has mostly been replaced with a working day which encompasses the individual's needs to work whenever, wherever and however they can to get the job done on time.
Employee Health, Wellness And Wellbeing
The practical health and safety of all employees has always been, and will remain, of the highest importance. However, more employers than ever before are also concerned about the idea of wellness and wellbeing, which is much more difficult to ensure than physical safety.
Your office design in London can have a major impact on your employee's immediate and long-term health, overall happiness, and general productivity. Any companies or organisations which are focused on helping their staff to improve their physical, and mental, wellbeing will be able to reap the benefits, including:
- Increased brand loyalty,
- Higher levels of motivation,
- Heightened skill sets,
- Healthier and happier employees.
Completely Inclusive Office Design
For quite possibly the first time in history, thanks to improved medical care and education, many businesses have employees from four different generations working in their offices. It is absolutely essential that office designs in 2016 recognise this and, rather than designing just for one type of worker, ensures the suitability of the working environment for all employees.
When it comes to your office interior design, you need to ensure that both suitability and accessibility come into question throughout 2016.
