HOW CAN WE IMPROVE OUR WORKING ENVIRONMENT?
Just a few changes to your office could result in yourself and your staff being more productive
When you are busy at work, it’s easy not to worry too much about what your office space looks like. However, there is plenty of evidence that mood and productivity are affected by our surroundings. Basepoint centres offer a wide range of fully serviced office space, with units of different sizes ranging from small studios to flexible space and workshops. Whichever type of unit you choose, there is plenty of scope to furnish it so that it fits the personality of your business. A big bonus for companies based at our affordable office centres is that staff also have access to communal areas, including versatile break-out facilities with wi-fi, coffee and drinks machines, in bright, light and modern buildings. These areas have a colourful, lively feel which provides a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.
Here are 5 easy tips to help :-
Splash of Colour – Opting for a bright feature wall, for instance in teal blue or green, can create a striking contrast with surrounding white paintwork and help to give a funky feel to a small or medium-sized office.
Taste of the Outdoors – It’s increasingly recognised that plants and greenery in offices can enhance mood and atmosphere and promote better staff health.
Changing Desk Layouts – Older desks may take up more space than is needed, if they were built to take heavy old-fashioned computers and monitors rather than the smaller, space-saving models which have now replaced them.
Avoiding Clutter and Improving Storage – To make a small office feel more spacious, it’s important to avoid clutter building up, and this means having enough storage.
Shedding Some Light: Another way to create a greater sense of space is to ensure offices are well-lit, and avoid creating dark corners.
