Like many other small and medium sized business enterprises these days, you may well be keen to refurbish your company’s offices. Indeed, a change of layout and some brand new desks and chairs can help to make your premises look more impressive as well as give your office workers a shot in the arm.
However, refurbishing an office environment is not always that straightforward. In fact, there are a number of aspects which you would do well to consider before giving your office workers a mandatory week off for a ‘refurb shutdown’!
The type of layout you choose for your office can be integral to the productivity and morale of your office employees. In general, open plan offices are now widely regarded as being more conducive to productivity and morale than cubicle-type office layouts. The main reason for this is that open plan layouts encourage workers to interact with each other in a more personal way. This is something which is beneficial to all humans (whether they realise it or not) and as such it can lead to a more positive working atmosphere where motivation and productivity are both higher.
Desks and Chairs
Desks and chairs are of course the most significant furniture aspect to consider as they are very much the backbone of any office environment. Indeed, your company (like every other firm in the UK) may well be completely dependent on the use of computers so you will need to ensure the desks and chairs you purchase reflect this.
When it comes down to it, the most important thing to bear in mind with office desks and chairs is that they need to be comfortable, durable and fit for purpose. Having your office workers perched precariously on uncomfortable desk chairs as they struggle to operate their computer mouse will inevitably cause them to experience one of a number of short-or long-term health issues. Indeed, whilst some of these issues may seem insignificant enough to begin with (a sore neck or an achy wrist at the end of the day); they may develop over time into problems that can lead to prolonged incidences of absence. Furthermore, disgruntled staff members may even seek out compensation if they believe their health issues are significant enough and could have been prevented.
With this in mind, you may well find ergonomic desk and chair designs to be the most beneficial and wide ranging solution as they will provide your employees with high degrees of comfort and functionality, thereby helping them to do their work without being concerned about developing any aches and pains in the future.
