Efficiency is key in our fast-paced post-COVID world. Many businesses have made the transition back to in-person workspaces, but for those that are thinking about renovating before doing so, there are a few things to consider.
To any business owner, a chance for increased efficiency and higher production sounds like a win/win, and efficient design can help to achieve that. Our work environment has a lot of influence on our production and morale throughout the day, so it is important to keep that in mind when thinking about an office renovation.
So the million-dollar question is: How can you achieve efficiency through your office’s design? CIC is here to help guide you through mastering your commercial renovation.
Nobody wants a sedentary lifestyle, but unfortunately for most office jobs we’re limited to desk work. In this case, design the layout of your office to promote movement and interaction between employees. As employees take a break, they will be encouraged to walk around the space, which in turn will get the blood flowing and allow the “creative juices” to flow. This can lead to more creative and more productive employees.
We’ve mentioned many times the importance of color theory in a commercial space. You can refer to our blog on color theory in office spaces to learn more about the effects each color has on employee morale (https://cic-corp.com/office-paint-colors-and-what-they-mean/).
Choosing the right colors can not only give your office the “WOW” factor, but also improve the morale of employees and encourage creative thought. Having the right balance of color can make a difference to not only your employees but your company as well.
Even though minimalist may not be your style, it is a very efficient design concept that has more benefits than just a cleaner-looking office. By reducing clutter, you are in turn reducing waste and minimizing your carbon footprint.
Your office can achieve this by going paperless, reducing unnecessary accessories, and turning every seat in your office into a functional workspace.
Implementing greenery and natural light into the workplace has been known to have a multitude of benefits including improving the well-being and overall happiness of employees. Embracing natural light and plants throughout the office is beneficial for keeping the air clean, enhancing productivity, and making the work environment a more comfortable one to work in.
