As Covid19 lock-down measures ease, many businesses are slowly returning back to work. As a business owner, perhaps having time away to reflect has allowed you to think more clearly of ways to improve your business and office space.
Whatever your motivation, there comes a time when every business premises is ready for a makeover. Take a look at the 5 signs we’ve outlined below, that may suggest it’s that all important time for you:
1) You Avoid Hosting Client Meetings
Do you often have potential clients that you’re looking to impress? We all know how much first impressions count, especially in business.
If you find yourself avoiding hosting client meetings in your office premises, then it may be time for a revamp. Your office is your business and making sure you're proud of it and that it reflects your brand is crucial.
It’s also important that you have a good space for meetings, whether that’s including the full team, or an area that’s more confidential. If you have the space you could opt for a separate boardroom entirely. Alternatively, partitions can also be a great way to utilise space and hold meetings in privacy.
2) Appearance Is Outdated
Maybe your office furniture has gained a few scuffs over the years, or your chairs have lost their supportive feel. It’s important to take pride in your office’s appearance, and ensure that all of your furniture and technology is still completely functional.
It’s also a great idea to have furniture that is coordinated, that can tie in with your company’s brand, and really leave a lasting impression.
Your business is constantly evolving, and with a modern, contemporary look you will feel proud to show off your office premises to prospective clients, and employees. Your furniture should be stylish, attractive, whilst also being practical and comfortable. You can take a look at some of the different ranges offered by Yorkshire Office Group to give you a better idea, here.
3) Employees Become Unproductive
Does your office premises have a good, positive atmosphere? Do your employees feel motivated to perform to the best of their ability every day?
If you feel comfortable at work, and feel that you have the environment and office supplies needed to complete your work, it’s a proven fact that you will be much more productive.
The majority of people spend more time at work than they do anywhere else, and an employee’s working environment is often something that goes overlooked. If you wouldn’t feel happy to invite clients to your office, then your employees probably don’t feel very inspired to be there either.
4) No Employee Communication
Without space for internal meetings, or a desk layout that allows for easy collaboration, employees can find it difficult to communicate with one another.
Bench desks are a great option for a bigger team that need to work together on a daily basis. They are designed to share structural components, so are also a great, affordable option.
You should also consider the importance of a well-designed seating area. Employees are more productive if they can enjoy time away from their desks during breaks. Ensuring your team can sit together and communicate during this time will help reduce stress at work and will dramatically improve team morale.
5) There’s Little Space
If your business has recently gone through a period of growth, then you will rightly so be feeling incredibly positive!
Whether you’ve hired more members of staff within a short space of time, or you’ve purchased extra equipment, space can become tight very quickly.
A lack of space and storage can then lead to cluttered desks. Papers can quickly begin to pile up if you don’t have the ability to easily file them. Unfortunately, this can cause stress, loss of time, and your team not being able to complete their job efficiently.
Desks and storage systems that are designed purposefully for a specific office layout can completely transform a space. If your office isn’t huge, then storage is essential to free up some extra floor space and means that desks don’t need to be as big. At Yorkshire Office Group, we offer a range of storage systems such as filing cabinets, pedestals, cupboards, tray units, desk accessories, and much more.
