3 Tips for Designing the Perfect Workspace

Sep 10, 2020

There are a number of reasons why you should spend some time and resources in designing the perfect workspace. Not only does a good workspace boost employee productivity, but it also can prevent burnout, increase employee satisfaction, reduce turnover, and more. The more productive your employees are, the better their job performance will be, in turn benefiting the company as a whole.

There are a number of things you can do to create a workplace that is ideal for productivity, creativity, and collaboration, all while taking social distancing into consideration. COVID-19 has turned our worlds upside down, so it’s natural that it would affect how you need to design your workplace as well.

 

Top 3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Workplace

Office seating area

Intentional Common Areas

Collaborative spaces and break rooms can be boring and bland, or they can encourage connection among team members more inclined to enjoy being in the office. Collaboration can be crucial to productivity and creativity amongst team members. It’s important to keep that in mind when designing your common areas.

When thinking about these open areas, some businesses may think that they have to get rid of these collaborative spaces completely to allow for proper social distancing. However, this is not usually the case. Something to consider is furniture designed with open areas in mind that include options that can help organizations be mindful of social distancing. This can include various cubicle sizes, chairs designed with privacy in mind, and more. 

Having whiteboards, comfy seating, big screens to connect your computer to, and other collaborative devices can help to encourage a team environment and increase productivity across the board. This also can lead to your employees being much more engaged.

 

Inspire and Encourage

Inspire and encourage with motivational artwork and decor intended to spark creativity. Inspirational sayings can also help to motivate your employees if they are having a bad day or feeling stuck on a project. Adding small plants, greenery, or flowers are good ways to warm up your decor and enhance mood within the office. 

Something to consider is creating an outdoor workspace as well. Fresh air and scenic views can do wonders for creativity. Being outside is also great for allowing for proper social distancing and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

 

Office cubicle screens

Consider Color

Utilizing pops of color throughout your space, particularly your brand colors, can add value and elegance to your workspace. Colors tend to have an influence on our emotions. Keeping everything neutral-colored can be boring and even decrease productivity and focus on work. Blues and greens have been said to help with focus, reds increase attention to detail, and yellow boosts creativity. 

Natural light is also very important. Employees tend to work best when they can see daylight and the outside through windows. Productivity tends to increase, as well as overall mood, when employees are able to work near a window.
