To make the workplace amazing, you definitely need to have a few special areas. Of course you can’t expect meetings, resting, reading, and so on.
Listed below are four areas that an ideal work office must have:
This is for the creative minds. The studio will help bring creativity alive not only in the creative heads but also in the other employees. Employees should be free to go to the studio and put in their thoughts and ideas. The entire studio should be built on creativity. It should show what you reflect and encourage.
Your building must have a town hall where you can go for casual meetings and lunches. Add flexible seating and communal tables, and you will be done. You can use this as the social hub if you use the space properly. The town hall will bring in the feel of community and that promotes happy hours!
You don’t need plenty of conference rooms. A good idea would be to refurnish one room into a living room with couches, white boards, and small tables. This will give you a casual but serious feel and you can conduct meetings in this room at times. Employees will feel more at ease and speak up.
You have a few introverts in your office for sure. You shouldn’t neglect them. Build a library for them to sit down in peace and do some thinking. When you have complex tasks to work on, you can always head to the library for some quiet time so that you concentrate only on the task at hand. Employees will definitely appreciate the presence of a library in the office.
Shelters are areas for discussions. Meetings and discussions are different. Sudden discussions can be called in the shelters instead of the conference rooms. Small groups can collaborate and take action immediately. Plus, your conference rooms will be free to be used for other meetings!
Include these areas in yourworkspace and see how fruitful it becomes.
Turn a boring workspace into something more comfortable so that your employees automatically become productive. Include areas such as a library and a shelter so that each serves an excellent purpose for your employees.
