Once, the workplace offered nothing more than a ‘shell’ for people to exist in, as they continued their work in a monotonous manner. Not much thought was placed into the design of workspaces, other than ‘how many workers can be placed here’.

Times have changed; the types of jobs that we undertake have changed, how we work has changed. Today, the design of the workplace simply must provide a balance between catering for the needs of the business and its employees.

In this blog, we’re going to look closely at how office interiors in Wokingham can help to cater to everyone’s requirements AND provide that ‘culture of improvement that will help to push the business to a higher podium of success.

Why should I improve my office interiors in Wokingham?

If you think about it, many of us will be spending MORE time working (and commuting to/from work) during the week than we would at home. So as such, shouldn’t the places where we spend much of our time be comfortable and catered towards how we operate?

Improving your office interiors in Wokingham will help to provide motivation to employees, create a better impression on clients and what’s more, it will modernise the company; helping the business to continue to progress in the long term.

Building a culture of improvement

Putting in place walls, furniture and all the tech they need, is just half of the job of creating a positive feeling within the workplace. That’s the facilities provided, now you need to provide the philosophy. Every employee should feel that they’re valued by the company and that their opinions matter; putting in place a culture of improvement can help to make your employees feel at home, as well as get the best out of them and your office interiors in Wokingham.

Here are some tips on creating a culture of improvement:

  • Setting small manageable goals will help to create a culture of continuous improvement. Workflow can vary; there may be times when it seems fine, other times it may seem too much. By managing workloads better and breaking them up into smaller, much more manageable goals, employees will feel positive about undertaking their work. As workloads grow over time, they’ll likely feel more comfortable and confident attacking increased workloads in the future.
  • The importance of feedback cannot be underestimated for both the employee and the company alike. Popular methods for employees to get their views across, includes holding regular meetings or through anonymous suggestion boxes that will give them the opportunity to give honest feedback without feeling pressurised. Your office interiors in Wokingham can help to create such spaces (especially meeting rooms, or more informal settings – such as comfortable breakout rooms and kitchens).
  • Placing trust in employees gives them the freedom to explore their work in their own, unique way. Doing this will allow them to work in a comfort that is ideal for them; just like the adjustable, ergonomic furniture that is a fixture of all modern office design, the best workplaces are ones that can provide their employees with an adaptable, versatile way of working. Giving employees this freedom won’t just help them to find their perfect way of working, it will also make them more appreciative of the business and they will feel that they’re having a genuine impact on the success of the business.
  • Providing motivation to employees is nothing new; big businesses will provide things such as bonuses, holidays and promotions to hard workers in order to push them to new heights. These ‘bonuses’ are obviously not economical for many businesses, but it’s the finer things that have a similar impact on the motivation of an employee to do well. Allowing them that extra day off, or more time watching television in the breakout room, playing games, or a few free drinks can help to say thanks on a regular basis. As prizes, they can even be exploited by the business to encourage employees to foster genuine relationships that will no doubt help to improve teamwork and their drive to produce great work for themselves, their colleagues and the company.
