3 Creative Ways to Rethink Your Workstations
Your office’s workstations can be interactive hubs or quarries of individualism, depending on your design. As you invite employees back into the office, you’ll want your workstations to reflect your company’s post-COVID-19 values.
Here are some tips to get started!
This process can be as simple as investing in additional cabinets for office supplies or installing new racks in every desk drawer. It can be as complicated as installing convertible furniture in each of your workstations.
By approaching your design with organization as the focus, you can help to streamline tasks and make it easier for employees to be productive within your workstations. Whether employees have assigned spaces or they access common stations meant for use by multiple teams, everyone benefits from a well-organized setting!
Discuss which organizational methods might best suit your team with your managers. Once you do, you’ll have a better idea of which pieces of furniture or items may help your employees to retain their productivity throughout the day.
Don’t Be Afraid to Add Color
A pop of color can make a space that was once barren a bit more welcoming. Add lamps with red bases or even wall art, and your office’s workstations can become extremely inviting.
Certain colors can imbue a space with energy, while others are more calming. Decide what type of vibe you’d like your office to showcase and dress your common areas and cubicles accordingly.
Promote Social Distancing with Design
Even as the pandemic winds down, there are still reasonable health concerns that may prevent some of your employees from feeling comfortable in an office. Take those concerns into consideration as you rethink your workstations.
Make sure each of your employees has enough room to keep to themselves in your remodeled workstations. This can mean embracing larger tables or bringing fewer chairs into each workspace. You may even choose to retain plexiglass barriers in your workstations until the majority of your office has been vaccinated.
As an added bonus, you may find that spreading out your workstations allows your employees to become more productive, as there will be fewer distractions in close proximity!
