In the last few years office spaces have completely evolved, with trends including open floor space and social areas. But just how important is office space? Having a organised workspace can lead to a less stressful and more productive workforce. In this months blog we look at how important a workplace environment is and how much this can affect productivity.
How important is a workplace environment for productivity?
When analysing what makes employees productive it never truly comes down to the way they are managed. Whilst this can have some affect, a key reason people are productive is when they understand the task and are motivated to complete it. This not only means they know the reasons behind the project but also that they are in an environment that enables them to think and focus their efforts on producing high quality work.
If a business notices a drop in productivity, its important to remember that employees are not always trying to delay the inevitable. Instead it may be more beneficial to identify the potential barriers that are preventing high productivity levels in your workplace. This can include employees having a clutters and uncomfortable workstation or there being a lack of quiet space where employees can concentrate.
87% of workers have stated that they would like their employer to offer a healthier workspace solutions. Along with 93% of workers within the tech industry claiming they would work longer for a company who offers healthier workplace benefits.
