Some people like messy. They function better that way. Then there are the rest of us who function at our optimum if our surroundings are appealing. As much as we eat with our eyes first, when we walk into a place the look of it instantly makes a decision in our brains to either like or dislike the place. With our efficiency often driven by what we see and how we are made to feel by our environment, it is only very wise to spend some considerable cash to design certain spaces. Especially if a person is expected to spend 10-12 hours a day and efficiency is crucial. Yes, I’m referring to your workspace. Here are a few tips into making that space comfortable.
Having the right structures
Do all you can to not be penny-pinching when it comes to getting those Sydney fit outs. Even if your work space is not a retail store and only office space, spend time, energy and thought and most of all a little bit of dough in making the place look appealing. If you want your workers/employees to be happy and contributing efficiently and productively to their work then the environment they work in makes a great big difference. Spend on the flooring, the partitioning; giving them some privacy while adding class and even those windows and ceilings. Light and color brings warmth and positive energy into otherwise blue environments.
Being organized and clutter free
Would you rather have to skim through piles of paper to get to one tiny post-it note where you have put down an important client detail or would you rather have all that paper filed away neatly and your notes kept near your phone where it is much more visible? Time is money. And efficiency is important if you want your business to be fruit bearing. Get rid of all that white noise created by clutter and dirt. Invest in some fancy and handy shopfitters to accommodate all your files and papers, books and what not. A clean desk and clean environment helps us to think more clearly. So, organize, organize, and organize your workspace into sensible, practical yet fun spaces.
Compartmentalize space according to purpose
Working with limited spaces could be difficult to compartmentalize the creative unit from the marketing unit. But do look for creative ways of doing so as it would help your employees to focus on their work a little better. Also would give room for easier work discussions and even small meetings.
Let go a little
The fact that you have now spent so much money setting up a very likable office space you might not want anyone to mess-up by putting up a picture frame or a poster. With some ground rules, let your employees add a bit of their personality to their workstations. This would help create a feeling of belonging and help during those long hours of work.
