We’re sure that you’re familiar with the old adage of spring cleaning to bring a fresh touch to your home, work or paperwork after a dreary winter. Not only does it make your area and mind feel a lot less cluttered, a small change in scenery can pique the interest of your employees who enjoy the novelty feeling of being in a place that feels new.
Here at Officescape, we’re firm believers in brightening up a workplace to give your staff a boost in morale and ensure that everything feels a little tidier and brighter ready for the sun.
Therefore, take a look at a few of the most effective ways to give your office a refresh this season.
Large, open spaces that are filled with natural light make a great communal area. Not only do they encourage workers to partake in activity-based working, it also keeps them alert throughout working hours as daylight is an effective natural stimulant – although we don’t recommend taking away the coffee machine just yet!
Installing a skylight or more windows will enable natural light to flood into a room, which is also great for making an area feel bigger.
Adding vibrant hues to a workplace is often reserved for ‘younger’ businesses that have a focus on technology or new media. However, certain colours are great for encouraging productivity and they are also a great way to distinguish the personality of your business.
It also has the added bonus of increasing staff morale as they feel more energetic in an office that feels brighter, lighter and cleaner all year round.
If you have gorgeous shelving or book cases in your office that are just collecting dust at the moment, give them a thorough clean and change up what it is they’re storing. For instance, if you have outdated magazines that are of no use to the company anymore, switch them for relevant journals, employee portfolios, or even an array of ornaments or flowers to add a few homely touches to the office.
Not only will this increase employee and client satisfaction, but encouraging your staff to store their hard work in a communal area will increase their self worth and make them feel more valued.
