An office with plenty of natural light, open floor plan, moveable office furniture and roomier office space will improve productivity and worker morale. Having a good office design enables employees to work better together whilst making the best use of the available space. Avoid the traditional cubicle design in favour of more open offices to improve communication between employees and create a good first impression on your client and business associates.
The cubicle design is losing favour for a more open plan model. With cubicles and windowed offices being replaced with large rooms where the managers share the space with every other employee in the company allowing for good communication between management and their employees.
Poor communication and the reliance on emails are all too common in traditionally designed offices. This is an area which needs considering before entering the redesign phase. Modern technology is getting smaller all the time so consider the opportunity to upgrade your office IT which will help reduce the size of office furniture you need and create more office space.
When considering a new office layout, it’s necessary to identify the existing problems with your office before deciding on a new office layout. Rather than rearranging the ‘deck chairs’, it may be better to replace outdated office furniture that limits space and productivity. New office furniture is designed with function in mind and to make best use of the available space.
