Now, more than ever, it is crucial to be considering a working environment that will evolve with the times and keep up with the every changing technologies and working styles. Here are a few things to consider when setting up or refurbishing your office space:
Design your space for adaptability. Look at desks, tables and seating that all fit together and configure in a variety of formations. Are you able to accommodate new staff members or adjust your desk configuration for presentations or large projects? Creating zones for low noise work areas, along with collaborative spaces will cater to a range of working styles and enable higher productivity levels amongst staff.
Invest in Technology
Flexibility is key in a modern working environment, and utilising Cloud based IT resources is an important way to provide staff members with a ‘work from anywhere’ atmosphere. We can then cater to the staff members with children, Sales Reps on the road or even the simplicity of moving freely around the office and away from the sedentary desk & chair setup.
Don’t cheap out on the chairs!
Be clever with your furniture! Comfort is key and having a chair that promotes correct ergonomics is essential. There’s nothing worse than sitting in an uncomfortable chair for hours on end. Correct seating is dependent upon your height, leg length and usability of your workplace tools. Make sure you’re looking straight ahead at a computer screen, and that everything you need is in a workable distance.
