With high competition for employees across various sectors, companies must look at how they can set themselves apart. Your office space can create a harmonious environment where employees can thrive and therefore drive results. A negative office environment can lead to high turnover of staff and a general feeling of discontentment within your organisation.
Causeway’s Future-Fit Space concept highlights some of the main factors needed to facilitate the best possible workplace for employees. There are many aspects outlined below from the physical features of your office space to the atmosphere employers cultivate that can encourage a thriving office environment.
Office comfort and design
CMI Workplace reported that office design could boost employee happiness by up to 33 per cent. A clean, smart workplace that is adaptable to the needs of the business is essential for increased productivity.
Natural lighting is said to spark creativity and improve the office environment, but even good quality lighting and open areas can make a huge difference to employee’s working attitude.
Design can also have a huge effect on interactions between colleagues. Open communal areas that are easily accessed encourages a culture of cohesiveness within the organisation. Similarly, it may be important for your organisation to have areas for staff to work isolated when they need to meet deadlines without distractions.
Ensuring your organisation has the correct digital equipment and connectivity is essential for an efficient workplace. When employees have all the requirements to do their job to the best of their ability it will improve their working day and increase productivity.
Chichester House will be Causeway Asset Management’s flagship project for their innovative ‘Future-Fit Space’ concept that puts connectivity and technological building advancements at the forefront of their building design. These developments that include a WireScore Certification will combat common office distractions of connectivity issues that waste time and money.
Communication is key
Creating an open-door policy with employees allows them to feel more comfortable raising issues which will in turn build trust within the company. An increased level of communication will lead to more informed decision making in the future throughout the business.
This style of business relationship allows employees to feel secure in the workplace and reduce anxiety or stress surrounding their job. A flowing communication system can improve employee satisfaction, improve efficiency and reduce absenteeism.
Health & wellbeing initiative
Nurturing your employee’s health and wellbeing has become a necessity for companies to succeed. This creates a culture of positivity within your organisation which will ultimately lead to increased productivity and enthusiasm from employees for their job.
At Chichester House we have integrated this into our designs and understand the importance of providing companies the correct space to focus on a health and wellbeing initiative.
