How to set up a Productive Office for Your Business

As hybrid working is well and truly here to stay, encouraging people to get back into the office can be a challenge. Especially when you factor in commuting costs amid rising living costs.

To encourage as many people as possible to get back to the office once and for all, you’ll need to ensure you have a productive work set up. And one which people enjoy spending time in!

If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve put together everything you need to know below.

How can the office affect productivity?

Productivity is something on virtually every business owner’s mind. But you probably didn’t know that your surroundings can have a monumental impact on how efficiently your employees work.

Bland office spaces can hinder progress. Instead of white, blank walls, why not choose something a bit more exciting like sky-blue or sage green?

Although it might feel strange at first, these colours can help you create an environment that is comfortable yet motivating.

What design should you choose?

Although you might think that individual rooms are better from a productivity perspective, the opposite is true. Nobody wants to be cooped up in a cave with a computer.

If possible, open up the space by utilizing an open-plan design. If you do want to incorporate distinct rooms into the design, try to use glass doors to create the illusion of space.

Choose your equipment wisely

Making sure employees have the right equipment and resources when working is key to productivity. So, make sure to have a range of USB connective cables to work with the devices in your office so that the devices in your office can work together seamlessly.

As well as plenty of handy USB cables, make sure you also have plenty of other essentials like printers, projectors for your meetings and whiteboards for creative group sessions.

Ensure you also have an abundance of monitors, keyboards and mice – so you’re prepared for all eventualities. After all, you never know when you (or someone else) might forget something!

Think about collaboration

A collaborative workspace is all about allowing employees flexibility throughout the day. For example, many collaborative workspaces have different zones where employees can work, get creative and unwind.

Collaborative workspaces encourage your team to work together and problem-solve, meaning you’re far more efficient as a result.

Consider comfort

Nobody wants to be sat on an uncomfortable chair for 8 hours per day! When you design your office, make sure to incorporate ergonomic desks and chairs into the setup. You should also use desk monitors to reduce neck strain.

By doing this you’ll not only have happier employees – but healthier ones too.

When it comes to office design, the good news is that a few small changes can have a big impact. If you haven’t already, why not give the above a go?
