With many of us back working from home after the new restrictions were announced in the UK this week, offices across the country are empty – providing the perfect opportunity to invest!
Here are just some of the reasons why your workspace is important, including benefits to your team’s mental health and productivity…
Getting your team together (even if they are 2m apart) encourages quick, creative and spontaneous idea-sharing. It also eliminates the miscommunication that often happens over email!
WFH can make it difficult to separate work and home life. Travelling to a communal workspace allows your brain to enter ‘work mode’ and when you leave ‘home mode’ which can not only prevent burn out but also benefit your mental health.
An office environment can be a great place to form friendships. Spending time with team members across your organisation helps build morale and team culture, encouraging productivity and engaging your employees!
Having a routine can have a number of health and wellbeing benefits. It’s not just about travelling to and from your workspace, but how it shapes your day for other activities including meeting with friends for lunch or going to the gym on the way home.
Workspaces provide the perfect environment for focusing on your work. Although working from home can sound relaxing, it’s not always the case, especially when working around family or young children who may be home from school.
