Your Office

About your Office

Why Should You Care About Your Office Furniture?  Well, the furniture in your office is a big part of the success of your business and it’s not something that should be taken lightly.  You need to carefully choose office furniture, which reflects your brand, promotes comfortable working practices and increases employee productivity.

Office Design Ideas

Designing an inspiring office through your décor is difficult, but important when it comes to motivating employees and increasing productivity.  You want to make your office environment as creative is possible and coloured office furniture is becoming increasingly popular – especially if you can find a colour which matches your branding.  Moving away from the traditional woodgrain furniture in your office and adding a splash of colour can help to motivate your employees, but just as popular of a trend is using white as the base for all your furniture as it’s a neutral option that allows the decor of the room or space be the centre of attention.

Your office environment may have become dull and grey over the years and your employees lack motivation because of their working environment.

It could also be the years of sitting on an old office chair that is giving them aches and pains. Freshening up your office furniture allows you to show potential customers and visitors that you’re forward thinking, whilst giving your staff a new lease of life.

Well Being in the Workplace

It can be a real struggle to get yourself moving throughout the day especially when you feel like you are chained to your office desk.  The recommended goal by health experts is to walk at least 10,000 steps a day.  This can be a challenge when many of us spend at least 8 hours a day in an office environment which has led to the introduction of flexible working practices to try and mix up your day.

Height adjustable desks have been around for quite some time, but the ergonomic sit-stand systems are now becoming increasingly popular in the workplace to help reduce the amount of time employees spend sitting down at their office desk. The overall goal of these new desk solutions is to help improve an individual’s office health.

Benefits of Acoustics in the Workplace

Studies show that workers lose, on average, 21.5 minutes a day due to conversational distractions.  A noisy office has also been proven to increase stress levels and dramatically decrease employee productivity – workers can be up to 66% less productive when exposed to just one nearby conversation.

Whilst workers in closed plan offices can still fall victim to noise distractions, workers in open plan offices can often experience these distractions on a much greater scale. With open plan offices making up 54% of UK offices and 70% of US offices, office acoustics are becoming a necessity for more and more businesses.

ESD
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the sudden flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact, an electrical short, or dielectric breakdown. A buildup of static electricity can be caused by tribocharging or by electrostatic induction. The ESD occurs when differently-charged objects are brought close together or when the dielectric between them breaks down, often creating a visible spark.  (Source: Wiki)
