Revamping The Office: A Secret Motivation For The Employees
The average working hours of an employee is about eight hours a day, five days a week. That does not include overtime stay to finish paper works or emergency meetings to get a project over and done with. In that amount of time spent in the office, it is as if considering your office as a second home. With that being said, don’t you just want to make things more realistic? Since the office is your other home, why not make it as homey as possible.
Changing the office environment into something work conducive would benefit not only the in house employees but also the walk in clients and more so the overall image of the company. Just because you are wearing those neckties, long sleeves and pencil skirts does not mean you have no right to be playful in other aspects.
So for starters, weigh your options in which the most important one is your financial status. Check on your company’s account and see to it if you have the budget to be spent on renovating the office. If you decide you have enough then you can start the reconstruction. However, while the building is going on, you must have someone assigned to look into the money that goes it and out so that you will not exceed your allotted budget. You might also find it helpful to consider the time that will be eaten up by this construction. Will your office survive in a workplace with hammers pounding everywhere and furniture rearranged to make way for the machines and equipments used for the renovation. Also take into consideration if your office is currently handling a big project. Make sure the overhauling of the office does not in any way jeopardize your company’s reputation. Once you have handled all those things, you can now welcome with open arms a new atmosphere to work with. You can agree on the design and theme of the entire place as expressed by the colors you will use and the office furniture you will put in. Functionality must also be kept in mind by bringing in more cabinets and cupboards to create a bigger storage space for all the documents and materials.
One way to elicit a good work outcome is to feed the need of the people working for you. Perk them up and tickle their fancy by providing a work area that will shout comfort and style more than paper works and deadlines.
