No more drab offices, cramped warehouses and uncomfortable meeting rooms – companies are turning towards optimistic interior design, even when they’re staying in the same building. There’s real wisdom in investing in a good work environment, as it can cause employees to feel encouraged and cared for, leading to higher productivity, greater employee retention and increased job satisfaction.
Colleagues and managers make a difference to workplace culture but studies demonstrate that a physical work environment affects employee behaviour, perception and productivity. As specialists in office refurbishment, we believe that we can help optimise your business!
The Principles Of A Great Work Environment
A great work environment caters to everyone. It enables freedom of movement and encourages communication while providing the necessary structure and privacy to get your head down and work. If you’re looking to create this kind of space, you might consider partitions that can be easily removed or smaller panels that are no obstacle to a discussion.
On the other hand, you might prefer a purpose-built area where employees can relax, have an informal conversation and take some time away from their desks. A mezzanine creates this room out of otherwise empty space, enabling you to explore exciting new design options that wouldn’t have existed before. For example, natural light can have a really positive impact, something you might wish to achieve with full glass partitions around the edge of the mezzanine.
There are exceptionally few limits with a mezzanine floor, whether you plan on a breakout space for socialising or a work environment tailored to your neurodiverse employees. In fact, National Work-Life Week in October is the perfect opportunity to explore what you might do with this brand new space, from exploring mental well-being to prioritising work-life balance.
A good work environment boosts productivity but there are also direct ways to cut out distractions. For instance, we can install office partitions for individuals, with the option of double-glazed panels fitted with internal blinds for privacy.
Partitions can also aid communication in the boardroom, reducing disturbances from outside the space, while our full glass partitions can be branded with your company’s logo, adding professionalism, style and confidentiality to your meetings.
Safety should be your number one priority, whether you run an office, factory or warehouse! Not only does it reduce the risk of accidents but it also assures your employees that you care about their welfare, boosting their motivation as they go about their work.
In an industrial work environment, you might turn to a mezzanine floor, which creates extra space for observation or materials, cutting out cramped working conditions and getting rid of potential product landslides. In a way, it doesn’t matter what you use it for, as our reinforced steel mezzanines can withstand exceptionally heavy loads.
In an office, it might be as simple as covering up cables and reducing the risk of fire. This can be accomplished with a suspended ceiling, which uses mineral fibre tiles to conceal wires and piping, as well as diminish the risk of spreading flames.
These measures are truly essential. You may have a bustling workspace full of friendly and understanding staff but unaddressed safety hazards can undermine your employees’ confidence!
