Creating a productive and motivating office experience that gives employees a little extra pep in their step can be difficult, especially since many have differing opinions about their workplace. However, there are a few simple ways to spruce things up that everyone will appreciate. The infographic below by Adam Quest teaches you how to make the office experience better.
First things first — get better furniture. Ensure all office desks and chairs fit ergonomic standards for the most comfort and to reduce employees’ back pain. If you are especially invested in the overall health of your employees, look into adding some standing desks. These walking workstations help get employees back on their feet and can even help reduce the risk of obesity, cancer and heart disease.
Next, you must look at the overall office environment. Simple aspects like temperature and natural light can help alleviate a lot of discomfort and get employees concentrating on the important things. Stay away from harsh lighting, try to get in as much natural light as possible and keep temperatures at a comfortable place all year round.
