Spruce It Up – It Can Make All the Difference

Are your employees lacking engagement or the eagerness to do their work? As hard as it is to admit, they are probably feeling unmotivated. How can you blame them when they spend more time at work than they do at home? The appearance of your workplace is extremely important for employee productivity. 89% of employees state that their work environment is one of the key reasons that they are unhappy with their job. The last thing you want is unmotivated employees.

Next time you step into your office, take a look around the room. Is it colorful? Is there art on the walls? Do your employees add their own personal touch to their work space? Most importantly, is your office a reflection of your brand?

DecisionHR wants to ensure that your office space appeals to your employees. Creating an aesthetically pleasing office will increase your employee’s productivity, creativity and efficiency. Here’s just a few ways that you can decorate your office to enhance your employee’s well-being.

Splash of Color

Did you know the color of your office walls affect your employee’s energy levels? Brighten your office with colorful accent walls. Most businesses tend to stick with neutral color schemes, but why not add a splash of color! It won’t only boost productivity, but it will make your office look appealing too.

Go Green

Live plants aren’t just pretty to look at, but they increase cognitive attention and productivity by 15%. Plants will add color to the workplace and spruce up your office. With its many benefits, why not invest in a plant or two?

Personal Touch

Your employees are all unique, which is why you should encourage them to decorate their own work space. This leads to happier employees because they are comfortable in a place they made their own.  Also, this is a great time for you, as the business owner, to personalize the office based on your brand. Some great ways to do this are by hanging pictures of the team on the walls, placing framed company logos around the space, and displaying successful projects your team created.

Be Organized

Think about how much time is wasted sifting through piles of paper trying to find the right document. That time can be eliminated if everything in the office had its own place. The more organized your office, the cleaner it looks and the less stress it brings to your employees.

It’s never too late to transform your work environment to a space that will enhance the overall health of your business. Buy some buckets of paint and gather your team for an office makeover. In no time you’ll see improvements in their productivity levels. Your employees will thank you for it and so will your business. Get ready, get set, start decorating!
