Just because we’re in limbo between New Year’s resolutions and spring cleaning doesn’t mean it’s not still a good time to make some changes. If things around the office need some freshening up as we fight the last month of wintertime blues, then by all means freshen them up! Many business owners don’t realize the benefits of an office redesign, and in doing so, you’ll gain added pluses in changing up the layout to enhance your workplace productivity. Here’s how your office redesign can send workplace productivity through the roof.
Think About Your Business
What does it do? What’s your product or service? Are you more creative or more paint-by-the-numbers? Do your employees need to collaborate or work quietly by themselves? All of these things need to be taken into account when redesigning your office. Keeping your workers’ function, preference, and comfort in mind will give an immediate boost to workplace productivity.
Think About Your Space
How much of it do you have to work with? What’s the best way to use the space you have most efficiently? Smartly organizing your employees, your departments, and your office furniture within your space can be huge for productivity. Think about reducing time spent completing tasks like making copies, accessing files, and collaborating with coworkers, and arrange your office in a way that minimizes distractions and streamlines these processes.
Think About Your Employees
We’ve written about this in the past, but it’s important to remember that you have real, live, human people working for you. Those real, live, human people likely have different needs, wants, and preferences, so it’s important to ask them. Having their input will make them feel appreciated and they might just have an idea that will send your workplace productivity skyrocketing.
We know that completing an office redesign project can be intimidating and overwhelming with everything there is to think about. We hope that this simple guide has at least given you some direction in your thought. If you have any more questions and concerns, don’t hesitate to arrange a consultation.
