As a small business owner, acquiring a great workplace may be hard when you’re still starting out. However, as the leader of a team, you must always find ways to create a warm and inspirational office space.
People need stimulating surroundings, so here are a few ideas to get you started:
Colorful spaces: Bring light into your workstation by using great colors that will ignite a positive mood in the office. Choose colors that are unique to your place and people.
Optional spaces: Relaxed spaces for collaboration are a great place to get your team together and give your staff an option to work from home or where they feel most comfortable at least once a week. Stepping away from their desks regularly is a great way to reset their thinking and break up any feelings of flatness.
Creative spaces: These spaces can be used for project mapping, brainstorming and also keeping your colleagues informed of your day-to-day activities. The best way to create this environment is to have whiteboard paint; visually displaying your tasks on the wall next to your desk is a great way for everyone to keep track of what other team members are doing.
Interactive spaces: Always use vacant spaces for recreational style activities; a spare office can become a games room or exercise area for example. Adding some space where staff can interact in a non-working environment will help stimulate and encourage progressive teamwork. Many people define their office as their home away from home.
