Transforming Your Office Space to Increase Employee Productivity

Posted on by Cata-Blog in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Transforming Your Office Space to Increase Employee Productivity

Office ImprovementOn average, most people spend 40 hours working. Statistics show that an average person spends about 30 percent of their life at work. What this means for any employer is that the office space should give your employees the stimuli they need to improve productivity.

Here what you need to do to transform your office from a dull, boring space to a brighter and happier environment that motivates your employees to work.

Change the office colour theme

Every once in a while, you need to change your office colour theme. Studies show that colour has a profound effect on our moods. To create an office space that feels peaceful and harmonious, choose wisely.

Ask yourself this question: What moods do you want in the office? What colours will help you achieve this? Angela Wright, a world-renowned colours psychologist, said that it is not the colours that stimulate or soothes, but the intensity. Where an intense bright colours will stimulate, a low saturation colours will soothe. Blend in the colours of the walls and furniture to create a harmonious office.

Control lighting

Although it is common knowledge that working in the dim light can harm your eyes, lighting effects go beyond this: lighting affects productivity. Your office’s lighting should be neither dim nor too harsh. Dim light causes eyestrain, headaches, drowsiness, and lack of focus.

Harsh light, especially florescent lighting may trigger migraines and make it difficult for your employees to focus.

A great alternative to dim lighting and fluorescent lighting is natural light. If your office has a good number of windows, the only thing you should work on installing window treatments that will help suppress the harsh afternoon sunlight.

If on the other hand, your office lacks a good number of windows for adequate natural lighting, installing a glass-paneled sliding door within the wall should help. Such pocket sliding doors will help you close off your office for privacy while still letting lighting into the office.

Transforming the office should not be ‘a one man’s show. As you plan to give that office space a makeover, consult your employees on other changes they might need to make them feel more motivated.
