Office Design that Packs a Punch

April 05, 2013


We always say looks won’t matter. But the bottom-line is that most people and especially those in a business environment take appearances very seriously. From your personal attire to the look, feel, and functionality of your workplace; appearances can have a huge impact on your business, in either a positive or negative way. So with this in mind, take a look at these office concepts designed to give you the edge on your competitors, increase productivity, and create a stellar image.

Open office

No, we’re not talking software here...In an open office, the general idea is space. Think no restrictions, open air and constant contact. In an open office the layout is generally free from the traditional cubicles and dividers, and allows for easy access to different workstations and co-workers. This can be a great concept especially for workplaces that specialize in creative processes, as it allows for easy communication, quick visuals, and back and forth dialogue. A great way to emphasize teamwork!

Going green

With the ever increasing importance of being eco-friendly, many businesses and organizations are re-vamping their workflows and practices to be more in line with environmentally friendly values. An easy way to quickly implement this would be in changing your office supplies to those that are labelled as green. To take it a step further, incorporating large windows, natural spaces with plants, and replacing office furniture and other permanent fixtures with eco-friendly substitutes can be done.
If you are designing your building from scratch, keep this trend in mind because it is much easier to implement green design during the building stage, and it is one trend that is likely to stay for a long time!

Employee-friendly spaces

You know the value and the costs associated with keeping staff versus hiring new ones and re-training. With this in mind, putting some perks in place for your employees in the form of ergonomic workstations, quality office supplies, and clean and happy environments can pack some serious punch with workers. If you consider the time they spend at work; making it a comfortable, and when appropriate, a fun or enjoyable place will have a big impact on their satisfaction and productivity.
Creating staff lounges, lunchrooms, or outside spaces like a rooftop garden; are all ways to incorporate this concept into your workplace.
