Remodeling Your Office: Things to Consider
Is your work environment hampering your employees’ productivity? Your office may be in a dire need of a makeover.
According to a research study, the work environment significantly affects the performance of an employee. The physical environment has a direct impact on the productivity of an employee and can slow down performance and working capability.
Factors such as lightning, acoustic environment, furniture, and ventilation are highly significant and have a direct impact on the behavior and motivation of employees. Another research concludes that Canadian employers lose $3.5 billion dollars each year due to stress-related absences.
But wait, what is the point of going through all the hassle if you end up with the same mundane look? Here is a list of things to consider while remodeling your office:
- Make sure the design is functional and effective. Nothing is worse than going through the hassle of changing the entire look only to find out that it is a total failure.
- Know your budget. The key factor in remodeling is your budget. First, you need to have a design vision in mind. From there on, you work towards a budget. Speak with a few contractors to get quotes. Finally, keep hidden costs in mind.
- Communication is key. If your workplace has multiple employees working together, make sure you take their opinions into account. They’ll be more receptive of the new workspace if their ideas were incorporated. It’s also a great way to make your employees feel involved!
- Hiring the right contractor: This defines the success or failure of the remodeling process. Do not just hire the first contractor you meet. Speak with them. Ask questions about past commercial projects. Hire the one that has the ability to provide the type of work you demand.
- Plan ahead. Would your infrastructure be able to accommodate installation of equipment in the future? Is there room for future expansions?
We make sure your project is in safe hands.
