There’s no denying that the layout, design and feel of a workspace can influence the way a business works. That’s why we, at Chameleon Business Interiors, create offices that inspire creative ideas and yield optimum productivity by motivating employees.
There’s a number of different factors of workplace design to consider when attempting to maximise workers’ happiness – here’s 4 to start with.
One size doesn’t fit all
According to a recent YouGov poll, 53% of workers believe they would be able to increase their productivity if they were to attain their dream office environment.
Not everyone’s idea of the perfect workspace is the same, and even one individual’s preferences could change depending on their current task.
Boost workers’ innovation by providing access to a range of spaces to support differing working styles. From individual offices, to groups of desks and softer, lounge-inspired areas, variety in work stations is the key.
Break down barriers
In a world where we’re more connected than ever digitally, real-life communication can sometimes suffer – even though it’s a fundamental part of successful businesses.
Effective collaboration and communication between employees can reduce employee turnover, minimise workplace failures and improve office morale.
To progress conversation and teamwork in the workplace – as well as encouraging agile working, break down barriers by removing old-fashioned partitions and creating more of a modern, open-plan design.
A little greener
Incorporating a bit of greenery into the office not only looks good, but bringing nature into the workplace can also positively impact workers’ mental and physical health.
Numerous scientific studies show that indoor plants can help to reduce stress, increase productivity, decrease absence rates and boost creativity.
Whether you want to make a statement by adding an Enviro-Wall to the office, or simply place a couple of succulents here and there, we can help you freshen up your space and make things a little greener. See examples of how we use plants to brighten up our projects here.
Personality and brand
Office design is about understanding a business and creating an office that will suit the strategic and operational requirements of workers.
That means it’s got to be on-brand, representative of the values and intentions of you and your company – both of which, once again, impact on the success of a business.
Clever use of colour can be great for brand representation, an opportunity to showcase what is unique about your company, as well as potentially positively impacting on mental wellbeing.
