As businesses start to reintroduce employees back into the office environment, it could be a great opportunity to have refresh of your office layout. However, as expected, most businesses will have many things to do to ensure a smooth transition back into office working for employees, so finding quick and easy ways to improve your office layout can be a blessing.

Let the light in…

Rearranging your office to ensure as much natural light as possible is available will help improve so many areas of the working environment. Proven to boost moods, productivity and general wellness, it should be a high priority for all offices to get all the natural light they can steal. It is a really quick, easy and cost effective way to improve your office layout.

Declutter…

A really easy and efficient way to improve your office layout is by eliminating distraction and unnecessary mess. Decluttering your office will help you to potentially find more space, and welcome employees back to the office for the first time in over a year to an environment that is refreshed, clean and organised.

You can declutter in so many ways, from cleaning out desks and in trays to trying to go as paper free in the office as possible by creating more digital databases to hold records.

Add more homely features…

You can help the transition from working at home to back in the office more comfortable for your employees by adding some home comforts. Soft furnishings, plants and personalised desk features are quick and easy ways to improve the office environment for your employees and will definitely contribute to a better settling in process.

Better break out…

Improving the quality of the surroundings where your employees rest and recharge can make a big difference to motivation and productivity levels. Make sure you are offering a relaxing and comfortable space for your employees to take their breaks in, this can be so easily achieved with adding the soft furnishings and homely touches we talked about above.

Create dedicated spaces…

Having a quick restructure of the areas of working atmospheres available to your employees is an efficient way to improve your office layout, creating a more organised and focused working environment. From collaborative working spaces where people can work on projects and get inspired by brain storming together, to quiet areas where independent workers can get their heads down without distraction, it is important to recognise that everybody works differently. It doesn’t have to be complicated, you will likely already have the tools needed to create these dedicated spaces, but making sure everything is organised into the right working spaces will improve the office layout.
