“Light, natural colors, live plants and a clutter-free desk, along with comfort features like glass chair mats, can boost your business success.”
Your offices’ look and setup can have a profound impact on your employees’ morale – which, in turn, has a big impact on your company’s profitability. Design factors as simple as using glass chair mats over vinyl chair mats can help keep your employees happy and your bottom line strong. Clearly Innovative Home & Office Products offers a few design tips for maximizing your success:
- Comfort is Key: Comfortable employees are productive employees. And comfort takes multiple forms in an office setting. An ergonomic keyboard and mouse will cut fatigue in employees’ hands and help avoid conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. An ergonomic chair paired with a glass chair mat will ease strain on the back, neck, shoulders and knees. Good lighting will reduces eye strain and resulting headaches. A visual breath of fresh air helps keep an office from feeling cage-like. A window is ideal, but if your office doesn’t’ have any, you can mimic the outdoors effect with paintings of outdoor scenes and lots of live plants (which, by the way, help improve the air quality in an office – a health benefit unto itself).
- The Color of Success: Subdued, cool colors promote feelings of tranquility and focus. Light blues, greens, yellows and whites help employees focus. In fact, that’s why legal pads are light yellow in color. Dark, overly bright and red-toned colors are distracting.
- Keep it Close: Items you use regularly should be reachable without having to leave your desk, ideally. These include printers, fax machines, scanners, file cabinets and smaller items like staplers, pens, note pads, calendars, etc. Items that are shared between multiple employees should be kept close by and in an area that’s as aesthetically pleasing as the rest of your office.
- Clear the Clutter: They say “a cluttered disk is a sign of genius.” They’re wrong. Studies show that clutter is mentally distracting and can hamper productivity. Every minute you spend searching for that report beneath stacks of magazines, Post-It notes and other assorted stuff is a minute wasted. As they say, “time is money.” They’re right. Boxes and folders that complement your office décor can help contain your clutter and make for a more efficient, effective work environment.
