.....Why improving workplace design really does increase productivity and maximise profitability.


Since the financial crisis of the late Noughties it seems that workers in Britain are working harder and faster than ever before and yet employers still feel that productivity has not improved. Research studies show that one of the most effective ways to increase output, both physically and creatively, is to improve the working environment and improve flexibility.


Foreword thinking companies are now recognising the benefits associated with improving the workplace environment; the even more forward thinking are already reaping those benefits. Businesses now consider investing in dynamic and contemporary surroundings a priority which allows them to present themselves as an Employer of Choice. Studies have shown that candidates applying for a role, often accept a lower financial package in exchange for benefits in the workplace, such as great social space, exercise facilities or agile working and flexible working opportunities; proving that quality of life and a feeling of being valued as an employee rank higher than salary.


A well designed workplace not only makes it easier for team members to complete projects and tasks more efficiently but can also induce an atmosphere of collaboration making working together a natural process and removing physical and emotional barriers.


An effectively designed workplace also has a positive effect on the health, concentration, engagement and wellbeing of employees; this not only improves productivity but can reduce absences due to ill health. A healthy, happy workforce will always be the most loyal and the most profitable.


There are many elements to creating a space that works for your individual business and, in turn, the individual roles within that business; one size does not fit all. A noisy, vibrant fully open plan workplace may make it more difficult for some employees to concentrate on detailed work; whilst more creative team members may prefer the high-energy atmosphere.


It is important to work with a design team that understands your unique circumstances and day-to-day business needs, taking the time to learn the processes and daily routines your team undertake in order to work as efficiently as they can.
