An office is so much more than just a building — it’s a place where people come to create, design, and innovate. But in order for employees to do all of that, they need to work in a space that’s both comfortable and practical. If you’re looking to boost both office morale and productivity, take a look at these 5 easy (and pretty inexpensive) tips. Let There be (Natural) Light
1. Let There be (Natural) Light
It’s so important for an employee’s mental and physical health to be around natural sunlight. While you may not be able to control how large your building’s windows are, there are many ways you can embrace natural light:
2. Add Plants
Greenery can add organic character to an otherwise bland space. Plus, they release oxygen that helps keep people focused and energized.
3. Don’t Turn the Thermostat Down Too Far
While lowering the thermostat may decrease your energy bill, it will likely also decrease productivity, as employees will be too cold to focus on their work.
4. Break Down Walls
The days of cubicles are long gone. Many studies show that an open floor plan helps ideas spread and makes people more comfortable with one another.
5. Ask Your Employees What They Want
What’s the best way to know what your employees want? Just ask them! A quick survey could give you serious insight into how your employees feel and what they want in a workspace.
