The office space you design can have a bearing on the performance of your staff within the building. An office is more than just a room; it is a place where people can spend the majority of their time during the week and it needs to inspire. Make sure you take staff into consideration when you are designing an office space.
On the most basic level, make sure you staff can carry out their jobs safely within their office environment. This means ensuring the layout works in terms of health and safety, making sure there is enough storage to avoid trip hazards and giving your staff plenty of work space.
It’s also important you make sure your staff can work happily in your building. Think about different ways of working and create zones, for example, put together an open plan work space with sofas and whiteboards for brainstorming sessions. Make sure the building is generally and enjoyable and comfortable place to be, for work time and leisure time.
