Businesses are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to improve productivity in the workplace.
Granted, there’s a number of things employees can do in order to improve their productivity levels, such as getting the right amount of sleep, having a healthy, energetic breakfast and using relaxation techniques to deal with daily stresses.
But, what most business owners don’t realize is that office setup and work environment play a crucial role in the performance of their employees.
While there isn’t a single solution applicable to every environment, there are some factors that are common when it comes to improving effectivity and performance in the workplace.
The quality of light in the workplace greatly influences employee productivity. A study has shown that workers who experience natural daylight during work are likely to be healthier and retain and regulate their mood better.
Workers placed near large windows that provided them with an abundance of natural light have reported getting an additional 46 minutes of sleep a night and feeling more energized during work-hours.
Natural light is also known to have a rather big impact on our metabolism and as such, can be crucial when it comes to regulating how our bodies use and store food.
In case you don’t have the option of increasing natural light, consider getting desk light-boxes and increasing light intensity overhead.
There are numerous studies which explain in great detail the way colors and color patterns influence overall mood and productivity.
One of the more recent ones has linked bland, dull colors such as beige, grey and white actually induce the feelings of depression and sadness, particularly with the female test group. Men, on the other hand, have experienced similar gloomy feelings with orange and purple workspaces.
The study has found that colors with low wavelengths such as blue and green actually improve focus and efficiency and increase productivity.
Yellow has proven itself to be ideal for creative work, such as designing, developing, writing, etc.
Another very important productivity factor is, of course, the design and layout of the office space.
Make sure that the most commonly used items are placed according to the teams and departments using them.
Avoid this at all costs and, if you feel that it is necessary, hire and office designer to help you incorporate the various office elements and furniture.
Most business owners stuff their offices with furniture in an effort to accommodate their workers only to overstuff it and clog the office space. When it comes to ergonomic, make sure you have seats that are beneficial for the form and keep the back straight. This keeps the alertness levels high and boosts productivity.
