How does a modern office look like?

Offices are no longer what they used to be in the past. White walls and white fluorescent lights have been replaced by colors and non-standard furniture. More and more business managers start embracing the idea of making the office environment creative and friendly. Why is that? The main reason is the fact that nice office atmosphere helps stimulate productivity and inspire innovation.

Corporate giants like Google, Facebook and Pixar demonstrated the same strategy and it was very successful for sure!

Which are the main characteristics defining an office as a modern?

The office environment is supposed to be attractive, catchy and make employees feel flexible and easy. This way they will be stimulated to increase their productivity without even realizing it. If you want to transform your office into a modern one, here are some of the things you should have in mind:

  1. Open work spaces – Working in an office without any partitions is a great way to make your employees feel convenient as they can work in a team and also for the managers as they can supervise the whole team.
  2. A welcoming reception area- This is the first thing your clients will see. That`s why you should make the reception area welcoming, friendly and professional. Your clients should feel that this is the right place they have been looking for.
  3. Space should be flexible – As we said, your office should look exciting, unique, professional and attractive. Invest in the latest office equipment! Buying items always involves spending and many people generally believe that you have to spend a lot of money when buying ergonomic office furniture. This belief is not a 100% true. With a little effort and preparation, you can make a wise investment that will pay back health dividends in the future. Have it in mind that ergonomics is not a product but a process -  a process of matching furniture (including tools, workstation, equipment, and environment) to the workers (and their work tasks) to reduce the hazards for injury and discomfort without undermining productivity.
  4. Adding items for a positive attitude – Smart managers know how to inspire and motivate their employees.

Why investing in ergonomic office equipment is a wise choice? What are the exact benefits for your business?

  • Lessening of fatigue, confusion and tension
  • An average 54% reduction in musculoskeletal pain
  • An average productivity boost of 42%
  • Increased calorie burn while standing – 50 extra calories per hour
  • Reduced risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and depression
  • Improved energy, focus, productivity, collaboration and creativity

Another interesting fact is that about two-thirds of office workers wish their companies offered sit-stand workstations, and 82% of workers believe they would be more productive and concentrated if using a height adjustable desk. This is a win-win case (everyone wins). Employees are happier, more positive and healthier, and companies save money on medical costs and missed work days, as well as enjoy a boost from more productive and positive workers.

Therefore, if you join the sit-stand revolution you will see for sure how much better you feel and how much more you can get done! Making an investment in ergonomic office equipment is a long term investment – have it in mind! Think about your company`s future development and make your choices according to it!
