With around one third of our lives spent at work, it stands to reason that our well-being will be heavily impacted by our working environment. Evoke Projects has shared many tips on improving productivity and motivation with a new office fit-out or office refurbishment, but did you realise that our workplace can also have a dramatic impact on our mental health?
As we near the end of 2017, Evoke Projects looks at the workplace trends that have been widely discussed over the last year. We also give our views on what the future holds for these trends, and how your office design influences them.
We all know how much better we perform an activity when we are motivated and engaged. In the workplace, truly engaged staff do not regard work as simply payment for a certain number of hours; they really care about the outcome and results of their efforts. Think about the customer satisfaction and profits possible from a 100% engaged workforce! Fortunately, there are well-researched office design principles to help you achieve this during your next office fit-out or workplace refurbishment.
The Evoke Projects’ team have been discussing Anetta Pizag’s book, Create a Thriving Workspace, which covers office design strategies for an ‘engaging business’. There are many thought-provoking points in the book, and we have highlighted some key considerations for your next office fit-out or refurbishment.
If you are a regular reader of Evoke Project’s workplace articles, you will know about the correlation between happiness at work, motivation and productivity. Retaining a happy band of workers makes good sense because your company will reap the rewards of higher quality output and better customer satisfaction.
People are happier when they feel valued and cared about, so Evoke Projects looks at how you can create a more caring workplace during your next office fit-out or refurbishment.
Every day, millions of people around the world go to work. But how many of them put in their best effort to fulfil a true business vision, either their own or their employer’s? Defining and communicating your company’s purpose and then creating an office design that reflects your vision will pay amazing dividends. Evoke Projects shows you how to make it happen!
It’s no surprise that research consistently shows that satisfied workers are more motivated and therefore more productive. Here are just a few statistics that Evoke Projects has taken note of:
- Happy employees are 12% more productive. 1
- On average, global employees indicated that if they were fully motivated, they would increase their productivity by 25 percent. 2
- Looking at business units ranking in the top and bottom 25% on employee engagement, there was an 18% drop in productivity between the top and bottom performers. 3
