Creating the agile workplace for well being & productivity

Workers are genuinely concerned about office environments affecting their well being and their ability to focus and work productively.

As for office owners, the practical considerations of cost, space, and location are predictably uppermost in their minds. Yet they also understand the significance of flexibility and mobile working as well as the pressures brought by a wide range of ages in the workplace. Employees well being and productivity should be the main areas to consider when creating an agile workplace.

Planning an office refit or redefining a new space? Here are five important things to consider:

Insight equals results

Your office space must work for your business. Use your staff, and expert consultant, to get a real understanding of what’s working – and what isn’t. Finding out how to make the most of the space can make a real difference the way the business operates in the future.

Flexibility is key

We each have unique needs, desires and motivations. Introverts and extroverts must work in harmony…and the space must reflect this. Knowing how your staff operate and interact is essential to creating a workspace that suits everyone.

Technology rules

Modern technology has created a new set of workspace rules. Wireless networking, remote storage and mobile technology should influence your layout, equipment and furniture decisions. Questioning the traditional office setup is the right thing to do.

Trust and respect

Flexible workspace should increase the productivity and wellbeing of your staff. Management must believe that their staff will work better…and employees should feel empowered to do so.

Find your style

Stylish interiors certainly appeal to some workers. But they don’t suit every business. You might visualise clean lines and simplicity – or aspire to create something unconventional. But, whatever you do, establish a brief, do your research, and, more importantly, this is a great opportunity to enhance the business brand
