Office Alone! When your workplace décor is as comfy, cosy and calling as home
Once upon a time, offices were mere four walls which stank of suffocation and stiff swamp when you stepped inside. You couldn’t wait to finish your hours and rush home. There was no comfort, only chaos. With time, things began to change slowly. The lines of hierarchy blurred, and comfort seeped in as employers realised that if they wanted more hours and work from employees, the latter needed an environment which was friendly and not hostile. However, in order to do the same, not only was a change in attitude required, but also a significant alteration in the ambience of workplaces. Hence, the practice of giving offices a more home-like structure started.
But, how can you pull off the same? How can you create a friendly structure without doing what the other organisations have already done? Well, for starters, forget about everyone else and bring forth your own ideas. Let us help you with some minor tweaks that may help create a work orb which will increase employee productivity and make them feel more at home.
Pop those shades
Whether you are a super stiff financial firm, or a beauty-catering company, at the end of the day, the office matters to those who work inside it. Pop up those colours and sync those with the usual theme of your brand. A blob of colour here and there in the form of boards and furniture actually delights the employees and cheers them up when they enter.
Invest in squishy seatings
From the sofa in the lobby to the chairs that are inside, invest in furniture that looks and feels comfortable. An employee can surely not work if the chairs give him or her back issues for life.
Put up quotes here and there, encased in funky frames. Also, make sure that those are not the usual done and dusted ones said by famous entrepreneurs. For all you know, pick lines from pop culture, entertainment and books. Sometimes, fictional characters posses more wisdom than the live ones who walked on the planet.
Common lounging/eating areas
Whatever be the turnover of your organisation, make sure that it has one common area where employees can let their hair loose, chat and eat. If that area encompasses a canteen, it’s even better. A space to breathe is always good.
Spacious and clean washrooms
The most important yet the most neglected aspect of a comfortable work space, is the washrooms. No matter how gorgeous your office is, it all goes down into the dirt if you are not providing your employees with clean and hygienic washrooms, at a place where they spend more than half a day.
Nope, that is not a slogan. Invest in indoor plants and place them aesthetically across the office. Plants and greens do have a positive impact on the employees and increases their productivity.
Work and play
Having a gaming room at work is one of the best ideas to let the employees unwind. From foosball to carrom boards, to even table tennis if you can expand it to that extent, gaming arenas within the office is a great way to make employees feel at home.
In the fast-paced environment of today, work needs are higher and productivity needs to race at a faster pace. Hence, having an office which caters to employees’ productivity is a must. Mansionly, with its professionals of décor makes sure that all your briefs are in sync with the vision of the company, and design the office accordingly, so that it doesn’t just remain a mere workplace anymore. It will be transformed into a place where ideas illuminate and miracles are created, with employees who consider it home.
