The workplace must be logical: there needs to be a sense of design, flow and organisation of the workspace. It must be easy for employees to navigate the space and find colleagues.
There should be a range of working zones/areas: providing flexible working spaces to enable employees to get on with the job at hand will mean they are more productive and have an improved sense of achievement.
Provide areas for well being and downtime: the office shouldn’t be about all work and no play, encouraging employees to take breaks,relax and interact with each is important for well being.
Let the natural light shine in: research shows that exposure to natural light in the workplace improves employee happiness and productivity.
Listen to your employees: It’s important when you’re designing your office space to gather views, desires and requirements of your employees. Create a workspace that your employees want and will use and you’ll have a much happier workforce.
