Increasing Employee Morale with Great
The way you lay out your office can have a
transformative impact on the efficiency of your employees, but also how they
feel about coming to work each and every day.
Far too often company culture is the only thing considered when it comes to employee morale, but there are a lot of other pieces to this puzzle. Increasing employee morale with great office design is a cornerstone of building a more welcoming, more open, and more collaborative space – and that’s what we hope to help you with and the rest of this quick guide.
Obviously, the physical space and real
estate limitations you may be contending with when it comes to your specific
office are hurdles and obstacles you’ll have to clear independent of the tips
and tricks highlighted below.
At the same time, though, there are always approaches you can take to boost employee morale with intelligent office design.
Let’s dive right in!
Work on Flow First
If you do absolutely nothing else – nothing else entirely – to go about increasing employee morale with great office design other than improving the overall flow of your office you already have handled the bulk of the heavy lifting in this department.
In an ideal situation, you’re able to look
at the entirety of your office when it is completely empty – devoid of people
and furnishings – to get a feel for how you’d like to set things up and how
you’d like things to flow.
In the real world, however, this is rarely
the case. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a look at your office
after hours (most people have left) and see if the flow is conducive to easy
communication, collaboration, and helps to foster efficiency.
Look for stumbling blocks and barriers that
negatively impact your space while optimizing flow and you’ll find that employee
morale skyrockets almost overnight.
Strategically Locate Collaboration
The whole “open office” approach has sort
of been debunked in the last few years, with study after study showing that it
doesn’t actually improve efficiency but instead elevates stress a lot more than
At the same time, the collaborative
benefits of open offices definitely is something to look to implement in your
office space – even if you aren’t going to be knocking down walls or tearing
down cubicles anytime soon.
People still need to feel like they “own”
their own little corner of real estate in the office but there should be spaces
that have been clearly and strategically located as team work areas and
collaboration zones. The spaces should almost always only ever be used when
collaboration is necessary, giving these physical spaces and atmosphere that
helps to elevate collaboration and sort of “triggers” that kind of teamwork
Implement these design decisions the next
time that you get a chance to overhaul your office and you’ll find efficiency,
morale, and the general happiness of your employees and your team increases
