There is no doubt want to make sure you and your employees enjoy a healthy, productive office environment. But what can you do to help your Boise Valley office space into one that inspires productivity and efficiency?
Your space should be one that motivates, but you also must provide an area for your employees to de-stress and decompress. Beautiful artwork, a large window or simply a quiet spot where employees can give their eyes and their minds a rest from the rigors of blaring computer screens and the phone ringing is a must for a healthy office environment.
Also, be aware of the lighting in your Boise Valley office space. Sure, you need plenty of task lighting to get the job done, but you also need to provide natural light in your space wherever you can. From writing at their desks to scanning the bookshelves, you need to ensure that task lighting is adequate to help prevent eye strain. However, all task lighting and no natural lighting can have a negative effect on the mood of your employees especially during the winter months so try to give them as much natural light as possible to calm and invigorate them and yourself.
Never underestimate the power of fresh air and plants. Stale office air does nothing for the health of your employees so add plants whenever possible. Plants not only provide fresh air to your office, but they are also pleasing to the eye. If you can find office space with accessible outdoor space, your employees will thank you for it.
Don’t overlook ergonomics when choosing or designing your office space. The health of your employees especially those who sit behind their desk for the better part of the day relies on their comfort. Do what you need to do in terms of ergonomically friendly desks, chairs, and computer accessories to ensure that their minds and bodies are comfortable and properly positioned throughout the day.
