So let’s consider the “future of work.” According to Gallup’s 2014 State of the Global Workplace report, 51% of workers said they weren’t engaged with 17% saying they were actively disengaged.
So what can improve these dismal stats and increase productivity and workplace happiness?
The answer is simply office design. With the way we work changing, where we work needs to keep up.
1. Effective use of space
By having access to natural light, collaborative spaces, and private meeting rooms, you’ll increase employee satisfaction and productivity. People will feel free to move around and won’t feel tied to their desks, creating more opportunities for creative collaboration.
2. Increase in Productivity
By having workplaces that are beautiful and interesting, employees become more productive. Investing in the ambiance of your office will change the overall mood. People will look forward to coming to work instead of counting down the minutes to freedom.
3. Urge for More Collaboration
Innovative workplaces shake things up. They smash glass ceilings and break the mold of what is expected. As a result, employees in this environment adapt the same attitude. They are more creative, and people are coming together instead of working in silos to solve problems.
