Design for workplaces has evolved from small, sterile cubicles to open environments that encourage employee engagement and ensure productivity. It’s proven that the right design will motivate workers to continue (or begin) producing quality output.
Quiet and Interactive Zones
A workspace can be built to include cafés, breakout areas, library space, ergonomic options, and open concept work desks. This type of design can enhance collaboration and communication. Meeting rooms may be equipped with modern video conferencing and AV equipment. Café spaces that operate under open ceilings with graphic elements added improve aesthetic appeal and make breaks, casual meetings, and lunchtime more enjoyable.
Flexible and Open Working Space
Flexibility of an office space creates potential for employees to adapt and use space according to their needs. Encouraging employee feedback and collaboration using features such as ‘idea rooms’ and offering premium parking that accommodates hybrid and electric cars can improve morale and make your workplace more desirable to potential employees and clients.
Accommodate Changes in Work Nature
Invest in an office that adapts to future changes (especially those in technology) and is environmentally friendly. For example, use of solar panels on the rooftop will enhance energy conservation and save on energy bills. Depending on the size of your company, you might create onsite restaurants that offer online ordering systems. Furthermore, gardens outside office windows will offer a serene place for employees and clients to gather, and enjoy from the inside as well.
