When a client pays a visit to your business, you want to make sure you create a great first impression. The decor is a key part of your office environment. However, you don’t want to just make it a welcoming environment for visitors to your business, you also want to make sure that your staff find the office an enjoyable place to work.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at 5 reasons why you should renovate your office in 2020. These also tie in with the key expectations from the modern office geared around wellbeing and sustainability.
1. Boost office morale
A welcoming environment has the power to boost morale amongst your staff. Even providing something as simple as a comfortable break room can have a huge impact. An inviting space encourages staff to leave their desks at lunch and enjoy each other’s company. This will recharge their batteries and provide the motivation they need to power through the afternoon.
2. Retain top talent
Generation Z (those born in the mid- to late-1990s) are now entering the workforce. Having grown up with technology at their fingertips, you’ll need to ensure your office is as inviting to them as possible if you want to retain and even attract the very best employees. Unified communications, collaboration tech and resimercial furniture are good starting points to consider.
3. Reduce your environmental impact
Public concern over the environment reached new heights in 2019, so do as much as possible to ensure your office is greener than ever before. A greener office can translate to a smaller environmental footprint as well as a healthier and happier work environment. To get started, opt for better office products, try going paperless and maximise natural light. You might be surprised by how much money you could save by making these small changes.
4. Think about the future
Are you looking to expand your company in the future? If so, planning for growth now is essential. Redesigning your office with this in mind means that once you have the resources to hire more staff, you can accommodate them straightaway.
5. Improve brand perception
You want clients and customers to feel comfortable when visiting your business premises. If you’re ashamed of your office or believe it’s not a welcoming environment at the moment, having it redesigned could elevate the customer experience, in turn strengthening your brand image.
Don’t forget about commercial flooring!
