A poorly designed office could mean more slacking, more inefficiency, and more sick days. Allow your employees to give your business their best efforts by giving them productive workstations. Here’s how:
Offer plenty of workspace to your employees based on their needs such as a monitor(s) with a keyboard and mouse (or a laptop), notebooks, pen stands, a phone, sticky notes and even personal items like coffee mugs and family photos.
An ergonomic chair is key to happy employees, better productivity, and fewer health issues. Get chairs that are comfortable, offer plenty of padded support, and can be adjusted to suit each employee.
Boost your employees’ health by giving them the option to work on their feet using standing desks. But don’t make standing desks the only type available. Encourage employees to use a combination of both standing and sitting desks for different kinds of work.
A clean, organized workspace is key to an organized employee and a productive day. Give them plenty of lockable storage drawers and shelves so that they can keep their belongings safe.and avoid losing time finding lost papers.
If you’re going for that open office layout, allow your employees to retain some degree of privacy and personal space. Think wider desks, installing privacy panels, and the room to stretch after hours of sitting.
