Business or pleasure? What about both?
It can probably go without saying that stress has a major impact on the workplace. Taking both physical and mental form, the feeling of stress will lead to frustration, low moods, detachment and illness. This is why many forward thinking businesses lend the design of their office interiors in London to the battle against workplace stress.Creating an environment that encourages interaction and the opportunity for people to take breaks is a great way to reduce stress levels; they say to an employee that they're 'not alone' in what they're experiencing and that the help is there for them to refocus, reconnect or simply to ask questions.
Such a culture can be fashioned by specialist facilities,such as a cafe, a lounge area, even a games room. These places are designed to detach an employee from the stressful working environment, giving them the timeout to relax the mind and to recollect their thoughts. The alternative is them,sitting at their desk growing increasingly stressed and achieving only unhappiness, so it makes absolute sense for an office to provide them with a place where they can refresh for a while. More often than not, they will return feeling reinvigorated and ready to tackle their work, and thankful to their employers that such a facility exists.
