The Right Office Environment Matters!
Understanding how you can make the most out of your office and doing the best to utilise the space you have can help establish and build long lasting relationships both internally and externally. These relationships stem from keeping employees motivated in order for them to perform at their best and extracting the best out of employees stems from having the right environment.
Understanding the needs of your employees is the first step in fabricating the right environment for them to nurture in. For example, the use of collaborative work areas encourage social interactions which not only help boost internal morale and productivity but in turn reflect in the relationships built with employees.
Trust can be a massive barrier when motivating employees to work harder and produce results. Creating an agile environment is all about encouraging flexibility and productivity and trusting employees to go off and do their own work. By creating different environments your employees can pick and choose to work in areas that make them feel trusted and motivated at the same time.
A noisy environment has never yielded any positive results for anyone, in fact studies have shown that workers can be up to 66% less productive when exposed to just one nearby conversation. Sometimes even the most basic rule of a ‘no talking zone’ can often make a big impact. In other instances sound proof materials or acoustic barriers can help absorb ambient sound while helping workers avoid visual distractions.
Who doesn’t like fun?! Just the occasional laughter session, leisurely strolls or introducing fresh air in the workplace can go a long way towards improving employee performance. Add a splash of team motivation activities and just watch the productivity climb!
In our latest whitepaper we have discussed at length how bringing in nature at workplace can boost productivity and motivate employees to perform. No wonder companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook Apple and many more are investing heavily in the concept of biophilic design.
The difference between motivation and demotivation is very subtle and employers need to realise that having the right office environment matters.
