Your new office design.
The right work environment can enhance productivity, employee wellbeing and satisfaction, as well as creativity and collaboration. And with a little bit of forethought you can select a style that will turn your current space into super-productive real estate.
Define your business’ personality
Are you hoping to foster creativity and collaboration, communicate reliability and respect, or appear sleek and sophisticated? Defining your business’ personality and how you wish it to be perceived is the first step to determining the best office design.
Unique brand personality traits can all be represented and highlighted through design-led fitout and refurbishment. Just look at creative agencies, where edginess and passion is communicated often through large graffiti murals, and creativity and collaboration is fostered through generous unstructured break-out areas. In comparison, look at banks where reliability and respect is represented in the often solid-state furnishings and private offices.
Think about the future
Where is your business going? How does it want to be seen by the market, today and into the future?
When designing an office, particular investigation into the future goals and aspirations of the company must be made to ensure your investment lasts.
This is a good time to consult the wider business and understand changes across all departments, to ensure your decision is future-proofed and cost-efficient.
Look at how people use space
The most effective office design is one that encourages efficiency, productivity and wellbeing in the workplace. The best way to gauge those esoteric factors? Observation.
Look at how each department uses their space and take note of issues and bottlenecks that may be impacting their day-to-day. Musts to consider include whether employees need shared printing rooms, break-out spaces, private offices or communal desks.
Planning a space that encourages maximum efficiency is a boon for any business.
