The coronavirus journey has been long with much of the workforce working remotely since the pandemic began. If you’re a business owner you are likely working to create a plan to have employees return to office.
Of course, this return will not be business as usual. Employees have grown accustomed to the comforts of working from home and will be less motivated if having to return to a cold and overly corporate office. Now could be the perfect time to make your office more cozy by adding a homey touch and feel to help your employees with the transition back into the office.
What do you feel when you walk into your office? If your current office design is cold and uninspiring, then look at making things a little warmer. Fresh paint on the walls, new lighting, plants, and artwork will all help to make the space more inviting. The updated interior design of the office won’t just help make your employees feel more comfortable; it will create a more positive vibe, which can increase creativity and help them be more productive.
When workers need a break when they’re working from home, they can just move to their living room for a few minutes of downtime. In your office, where will they go? There’s been a growing trend of adding cozy, relaxing spaces in offices. It’s a trend that began in Silicon Valley, but now, businesses of all types are looking at offering these types of spaces to their employees. If you have an unused meeting room, or some free space off in a quiet corner, it’s the ideal place to add some comfortable lounge seating and lighting where your employees can take a few moments to unwind.
The cozy lounge will replicate a living room. Now, what about the kitchen? We all feel more relaxed when we have snacks and beverages within easy reach. An in-office cafe can become the place where your staff go for refreshments and prepare themselves for their next task.
This space will also provide an opportunity for employees to get to know one another and collaborate on ideas.
Take a look at your existing lunchroom, is it warm and inviting? Is it a place where your employees would want to be? A modern and cozy lunchroom can be a valuable asset, a space where executives to interns have a chance to spend time with one another outside of more formal company activities.
With employees coming back to the office, now’s the perfect time to rethink your workplace and give them a new and exciting office to return to.
