When it comes to creating a work environment where staff thrive, layout of the office is a key factor. As so many of us are having to make changes to the offices to ensure that staff are safer from catching covid, this is also a great opportunity to have a look at the office environment and how the office is laid out and see what changes we can make to the office. You could even see it as an opportunity to update your office furniture if yours is a little worse for wear – for example office chairs Gloucester based company Severn Furnishing will be able to provide your staff with comfy new seating.
When it comes to working out the best way to layout your office, firstly think of the needs of the team that are in the office. This should be the first thought when you create a successful layout. For example, the people using the photocopier should be closer to it, people needing to concentrate and work in quiet should be further away.
Make sure that the office can run smoothly and consider where everything is placed so that routes aren’t blocked, and people are not having to go further than they really need to in order to access things.
Think about creating a common area where people can take breaks from the screen, have a drink and talk to colleagues as this will make the atmosphere in the office better and encourage a stronger team relationship.
