WHETHER YOU WORK IN A PRIVATE OFFICE OR ONE OF 60 CUBICLES, ALL EMPLOYEES FEEL THE NEED TO MAKE THEIR WORKSPACE THEIR OWN. GIVEN THE BENEFITS, SMART COMPANIES WON’T JUST ALLOW BUT ACTIVELY ENCOURAGE PERSONALISED WORKSPACES.
Studies confirm advantages
A study from the Department of Psychology at the University of Exeter highlighted the advantages of allowing workers to personalise their office space. The study reported significant improvements in job satisfaction and performance. Furthermore, the research showed that employees who work in personalised spaces are healthier, happier and more productive.
In 2016 Sodexo’s Workplace Trends Report cited nine key areas that managers need to address in order to establish a productive and engaged working culture. These include diversity, green building, wellness, work-life balance and workforce engagement.
Engagement is key
According to the report, the ability to personalise workspace is one of the most successful ways to achieve engagement with employees:“Companies spend a daunting $720 million on employee engagement annually. From how leaders are recognising and rewarding employees, to more effective health and wellness program design, we see the importance of a personalised, holistic approach. The 2016 Workplace Trends Report articles collectively share a theme that programs that effectively reward and recognise the varied individual employee motivators are essential in today’s multi-generational workplace.”
A unique identity for your office
It’s not just employees who should personalise their individual workspaces. By applying a unique, striking appearance that reflects who you are as a company, you’ll inspire pride and encourage everyone to live the brand.
