How Office Design Affects Productivity

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Productivity is influenced by a lot of things that happen outside the office. While you might not be able to control these factors, you can design your office space so that it gives your employees the opportunity to maximize their productivity. There are several ways to accomplish this.

Involve Everyone in the Design

Instead of leaving office design in the hands of one person, get the whole staff involved in the planning stages for a new office space or one under renovation. This will allow everyone to communicate regarding how the office should best be organized and let everyone’s voice be heard.

Fuel Energy, Don’t Drain It

Office space should fuel the energy of your employees. Many offices are abandoning sterile white cubicles for more interactive and engaging designs. And when your employees do lose energy, provide a space where they can recharge. Some offices offer rooms where employees can work out, others offer game rooms or outdoor areas where employees can relax. On related note, allowing for abundant natural light in the office gives the environment a more vibrant feel.

Allow for Freedom of Expression

Letting employees express themselves by means of office design gives the office an interactive dynamic. There is such a thing as overdesigning, and many times if the design is too complicated, employees will feel restricted. Minimalist personal work spaces and office spatial organization allows employees to put their own personal touch on their space, and feel unrestricted in their movements in the office.
