As your team grows and business develops, it’s essential to make sure that your environment has been adapted to support this. A new year means it’s time for new goals, new ambitions and a fresh start. This is why it’s the best time to give your office the refurbishment that it needs. Below are some reasons why we believe that you should update your office for the new year ahead.
Your meetings room needs an update
It’s time to take your tired old meeting room and give it a new lease of life. Not only will an updated office space aid productivity, it will also provide a comfortable space for your team to present and share ideas with the team, in a space which is separate from being at their desks.
Having an updated meetings room allows for a space to hold meetings, interviews, client calls and more. It’s a great idea to have a functional meeting space which isn’t where your main workforce are as this allows you to have these sessions in a more private setting.
It’s time to replace any unsuitable furniture
It’s been a busy year for us all and you may have not noticed how worn out your office has become, especially items such as chairs and desks. After all, there’s nothing worse than being sat on a chair which won’t adjust to your needs, especially if you’re sat at your desk for hours.
Another item of furniture that you might not have thought about updating is your drawers and filing cabinets. Over time we accumulate a large amount of important papers and it’s essential that they are organised, stored properly and that there is enough space for them.
Your staff need a dedicated space for chilling out
We all know that taking regular breaks aids productivity, so a great place to start is by having a dedicated chill out area. As much as we need our staff to work hard, it’s also important to make sure they have a comfortable and inviting space to chill out in too.
Whether this is a space for them to eat their lunch and snacks, or just somewhere to rest for 5 minutes whilst they take a break, they will thank you for creating a space for them to remove themselves from work for a bit.
You’re outgrowing your space
As your team develops you may find yourself needing a more organised office space, however if space is limited then you may be wondering what the next best step is. In this instance we highly recommend using office partitions to divide up the room, and to create different areas of the room for different teams to sit. Not only does this allow you to use your space to your advantage, but also allows you to help with team building as you’re never too far from anyone else.
You’re not using your office to its full potential
Often we find that there are awkward spaces within the office which aren’t big enough to use efficiently, and this space ends up being wasted. If your office hasn’t been properly planned out then you could find that you have actually wasted a lot of space. Luckily this is easily fixed, all you need to do is come up with a plan of what furniture you need, how many people you need to accommodate for, and what you would like to achieve from this plan.
