Many offices are looking for ways to improve the entire office experience now that employees are coming back. These changes aren’t about hanging inspirational posters; they’re sweeping ways to completely revamp your office building.
Most employees will sit in a chair for the entire day, so it makes a lot of sense to give serious consideration to the best seating possible. The more comfortable an employee’s chair is, the less time they’ll want to spend out of it. You’ll also avoid any long-term injury problems that could arise from lacking back support or cramped wrists.
Offices with fewer windows and more fluorescent lighting are going out of style fast. Larger windows combined with glass doors will brighten the entire office. Natural light makes a space feel more open and inviting, and daylight will positively impact the mental health and stress levels of your employees.
Utilizing natural light can help you in this regard, but there are other ways to become a greener company. Limit your wasted resources and consider installing solar panels. They are a sizable cost up-front but pay for themselves in terms of sustainability and energy usage in the future.
Filing cabinets are going extinct, and it’s no secret why. They practically use acres of your office space, and they are now entirely obsolete. Putting all your paper documents onto your computer system or into the cloud makes more sense from both a real estate and ease-of-access standpoint. This might mean paying for servers or cloud storage, but you’ll save so much time and so many resources.
You might think the parking garage is one area that’s already as good as it can get, but that’s where you’re wrong. Upgrading your garage to a parking system is a brilliant way to save space, become more sustainable, and improve the safety of the entire parking experience.
As employees return to the office, you should have great new changes waiting for them to make everyone’s work experience more efficient and enjoyable. Now that you know how to completely revamp your office building, set your sights on the future.
