When you began your professional career, what was the first impression of the office from which you worked? Did the design affect your motivation to produce quality content, how you collaborated with your colleagues, or even how long you stayed with the company?
According to the Fellowes Workplace Wellness Trend Report, the answer is yes. Just look at these statistics:
- 87 percent of employees would like to work in an office that offers wellness rooms, sit-stand desks, and ergonomic seating.
- 93 percent of technology industry employees say they would stay longer if their employer provided options such as wellness spaces and ergonomic seating.
What is the takeaway for business owners? To attract and retain quality people, one must invest in creating a workspace that employees will love.
At Standard Commercial Interiors, our focus is to help clients by providing happy, functional and productive work environments.
Let us show you how.
Encourage Collaboration: A 2013 Chapman University study found that individuals tend not to collaborate when they are not incentivized to do so. Offering a creative environment can help promote collaboration.
Our design experts will walk you through the process of developing a unique space that encourages collaboration lending to increased performance.
Something as simple as adding more flexible seating and conference areas, like this Volt – Collaboration table, can encourage employees to move around, and collaborate.
Offer Adaptable Office Solutions: Did you know ergonomics create a healthy and safe work culture? According to ErgoPlus Workplace Ergonomics 101, as companies incorporate this functionality into the office space, it decreases employee injuries and worker’s compensation claims.
Our company partners with numerous brands that offer ergonomic seating.
Incorporate Outdoor Elements: It is common knowledge that stepping away from your desk and computer screen every so often is beneficial to employee well-being. If your employees can’t step away as frequently as they would like, incorporating outdoor elements may increase morale.
Happy employees make companies successful. Our team is ready to be your trusted partner to design a space that is a win-win for your business’s success and employee wellness. Call Standard Commercial Interiors today.
