According to a study by Gettysburg College, “The average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.” That’s on average one-third of your life!
If you want to attract and maintain top talent, offering employees a welcoming, collaborative space full of office perks is a good first step. The great thing is that there are so many ways you can help boost employee satisfaction and make your office a great place to work.
Here, we’ll cover seven ways you can transform and advance your commercial workspace to enhance employee production and comfortability.
1.) Collaboration Spaces
It’s no surprise that top companies like Google offer collaborative spaces that are beautifully designed and equipped with top-of-the-line amenities. There are so many advantages that come with designating a collaborative workspace. The most notable: An improved and inclusive company culture.
When designing these spaces, think about what your employees value. For example, if you’re a technology company, try integrating the latest technologies within your space like smart whiteboards or VR presentations. You can also look for stylish seating options and maybe even look for furniture that doubles as art.
2.) Office Gym
An office gym has endless possibilities and benefits! You’ll find that your employees will not only become healthier, but they’ll also have better overall attention to detail, attentiveness, and well-being, which increases productivity and company culture.
One of the cool parts of an office gym is that you can also schedule group yoga classes or have employees book massage sessions. This is great for team bonding and ways to relax together. This is also a great way to encourage employees who just moved to the area to make new friends. The best part is the long-term benefits that lead to less illnesses and a healthier workforce. So, in the end, you’ll end up saving way more than the initial cost.
3.) Innovative Breakrooms
Creating an innovative breakroom is a team effort. Much like collaboration spaces, it’s a great opportunity to survey your employees to find out what they would like to do in these break space. Some good ideas to start with are adding recreation activities like ping pong, building a coffee station, or making an office library with designated quiet spaces.
4.) Upgraded Vending Machines
Food is a great way to lure and retain employees. With many companies now offering modern solutions to employee breakfast and lunch, there are a lot of delicious options for your company to use as a starting point.
Look for vending machines that offer healthy, well-balanced food options like sandwiches or salads. There are even specialized vending machines that dispense high-quality coffees and teas. These upgraded vending machines may also give employees the choice to pay with a mobile device, credit card, or debit card which is a great alternative to cash-only dining.
5.) Open Floorplans
Open floorplans are all the rage. You can find them in people’s houses and workplaces, now more than ever. These layouts come with a lot of perks like stimulating communication and leveling the playing field. By adding more sightlines, employees will feel encouraged to get to know their coworkers and those outside of their departments better. Bonus: If you pair this with a collaboration space, you may find more employees are encouraged to use it!
