Are you sat in your office whilst reading this? If so are you happy with your surroundings? Do you feel comfortable and motivated? If not, it doesn’t have to be like this and it shouldn’t be. Your office should make you feel relaxed and warm. An office refurbishment doesn’t have to be hard work or expensive, sometimes all it takes is to replace carpet tiles or office furniture to make an office feel different and have a positive effect.
Docklands are here to tell you the many ways in which an office refurbishment can help transform your business.
It’s a fact that people take pride in their workplace. So if their workspace that they spend the majority of their time at each day, isn’t aesthetically pleasing enough it is bound to affect their morale which in turn affects their productivity. Now as we all know a business needs to be as productive as possible so it’s in their interests to have their employees working to the best of their ability. An office refurbishment can help towards this.
Whilst an office refurbishment can involve upgrading office furniture, replacing carpet tiles and a lick of paint, it can also allow you to completely revamp your office space and in turn the way that your business operates. For example, If you wanted to relocate a certain department to another floor or area of the office, you can do. Or if you wanted certain people working closer together as their roles require them to work with one another regularly, an office refurbishment allows you to design a new layout to suit these needs.
It will allow you to incorporate meeting rooms and breakout areas if desired, so that employees can conduct private meetings and work away from the hustle and bustle of a busy office if they want to. Your Staff will greatly appreciate the opportunity to do that when they choose, which in turn will boost their morale and their desire to work for the company. You will find that by offering these upgraded facilities in your office, your staff retention figures will be high and productivity will increase.
An improved workplace will also set you more at ease when inviting current and potential clients to your premises. They will be impressed with your facilities and this will only have a positive effect on your company’s reputation. An office refurbishment may even make you realise that you have more space than you thought. If you have an office with a high ceiling you may be able to install a mezzanine floor. This will allow you to add an extra floor to your business for whatever you desire, by it that aforementioned breakout area or a new department within the business.
Many businesses have reaped the benefits of an office refurbishment and if you have been thinking about joining them, then don’t hesitate to contact one of the team at Docklands for further advice and information.
