For the majority of Yorkshire residents, spending time in the office takes up most of their mid-week hours, so is it any surprise that we are all so intrigued by the ‘world’s coolest offices?’
Highly recognisable tech-companies generally lead the way in the best office designs, with Google notably taking first place. But with most Yorkshire-based companies not having the budget to replicate the fit-out, is there actually any steps that they can take to try and create a space their employees are happy to work in?
Well although we specialise in office furniture, our team have seen some pretty outstanding office spaces in their time, particularly in the Wakefield, Leeds and York area, and so, they have prepared this article to help you get the most out of your space, and create your very own extravagant office.
In more modern offices, there has recently been a push to reduce the amount of space occupied by each worker. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it allows Yorkshire businesses to create a more efficient environment and save on rent, and what’s more it allows companies to create an open office space, which seems to be the trend in many creative agencies. In turn, this has allowed companies to create additional spaces for social and interactive areas, which once kitted out in quality and comfortable office furniture can improve employee moral massively.
Probably the most important item for businesses in our opinion is office furniture. If you take Google as the perfect example for the most exciting and enjoyable office space, you have to pay close attention to their quality office furniture – all of which is stylish, modern and you can guarantee, bespoke. Furniture such as office chairs, office tables and office storage space are vital to employee morale, and that’s because it’s important that your staff are comfortable and in an environment that is tidy to avoid further stress. Luckily, Yorkshire Office Group not only supply all of these things, as well as office supplies, but we also offer a bespoke office furniture service, which allows Yorkshire companies to create personalised furniture which caters to their space and brand.
Is there anything more demoralising than an office space that encourages staff to eat their lunch at their desks? What all of those businesses classed as having world class office space include is a space for people to mingle over lunch, granted this is more likely to be more appealing to larger agencies in cities such as Leeds, York and Wakefield. This social outlet can have a positive effect on staff morale, as it encourages them to have a well-deserved break talking to friends.
The above are just a few of the steps you could create in turning your Yorkshire office space into a cool, exciting environment for your staff.
