Why You Need a Stylish Office Environment
It makes the world of difference having a nice office environment to look forward to when you wake up.
Specialists within the Human Resources sector indicate that an inviting office has been proven to prompt employees to achieve more, work harder and inevitably feel happier and more satisfied with their role.
Sense of accomplishment is another important emotion which is indirectly induced.
Some of the quotes from clients within Pera Business Park, Leicester state that they have noticed a definite uplift in their staff optimism and consequential successes after just a few weeks.
“The turnaround is astounding.” Says Ed Leake, Midas Media.
With the hustle and bustle of daily life in busy cities, it’s paramount to ensure your staff are content with their surroundings, somewhere where they can not only concentrate but also feel safe, comfortable and worthwhile.
UK companies tend to ignore the importance of this vital component in working life.
It takes time, money and planning to get it right – and in the grand scheme of things it always seems to be one of those jobs which get pushed to the back of the queue.
However, the companies who get it right are the ones who include their staff emotions in their strategy.
A viable option for many start-up SMEs is the option of renting office space.
The hard work is already done for you – lavish décor, special meeting rooms and places to unwind, topped off with catering services upon request.
Especially desirable for those without mass amounts of savings to invest in an owned accommodation; an office lease seems a much more viable expense as it’s typically billed monthly.
A large proportion of UK staff value their surroundings, level of serenity and work satisfaction more so than salary.
Now, explained in this context, it is nothing less than unquestionable that a trendy, stylish and comfortable office is imperative to low staff turnover and high levels of output.
Think about it – if you are a CEO or Managing Director, can you remember the days when you were working for someone else?
What was it like? What were your surroundings like?
I can bet that the primary feelings and emotions are those connected with surroundings and people.
Get the surroundings right, and the people appear happier.
When the people appear happier, everyone gets along, the work gets done and you are a happy MD!
You don’t have to become lavishly outrageous; an office can be converted to a homely place by following a few simple steps:
- Create light, spacious office areas for your staff
- If space isn’t achievable, get rid of clutter and rearrange furniture as best you can to make the most of light while considering convenience
- Set aside a budget – shop around for the best deals online and stick to it
- Daylight lamps, plants, colourful wall décor and trendy, motivational posters will all aid in the creation of atmospheric energy for your employees
- Don’t compromise! Style is central to your businesses’ growth
