How should a workspace be designed to increase work productivity and happiness? We want employees to want to come to the workplace and be ready to work. How can we create a space that competes with the comforts of home and helps facilitate a culture of collaboration and innovation? What are the current best practices for this?
In today’s world, the classic office space isn’t sufficiently providing its employees with enough freedom to work comfortably and creatively. The workplace should be innovated to support work efficiency and productivity while at the same time boosting human performance and happiness. Creating a comfortable atmosphere at work can be done by choosing a location where the employees can either have peace and quiet or work in a hustle and conversational type of environment. Providing motivation and opportunities for employees can also boost morale leading to better productivity and happiness. These opportunities can be the key stone for employee comfort and innovation. Providing the workplace with proper up to date equipment is also beneficial for productivity. But most importantly it is important to make the environment loose enough that the employees don’t count down the minutes to get out of the “office”, but also not too stern that productivity can thrive.
