WHAT ELSE DID I MISS HERE? July 3, 2009 crizlai Many people thought that setting up an office would as easy as a piece of cake. Do you agree? Well, for me I would neither agree nor disagree. No matter how good the planning would be, there would always be some adjustments and add on to enhance the office to have a better working environment, not only for you but your bottom line. A lot of new establishments would take for granted that a simple layout with some basic office furniture would be presentable enough. It may be true for smaller companies which are not in the service industry but it somehow have the impact on the productivity, motivation and effectiveness of its workers. You spent a great deal of time in the office and you also won’t want the office to be as gloomy and enclosed as a jail right? Lighting plays an important part in a working environment as it would make the office feel more workable and comfortable. There should be ample windows to let some natural light into the room on top of the ceiling and standing lights to make the place perfect to work by. I’m sure most people would have known by now that having more personal work stations with the right office furniture would help your staff feel more homely. No matter what, get the right office furniture that would make you feel more comfortable. The chairs should be adjustable with proper arm support in order to have your feet flat on the floor. This would ensure good sitting postures while working long hours. On the other hand, the desk should be clever designed with proper hidden compartments to save some space. Hidden keyboards and mouse should encourage a parallel hand positions while typing and there should be ample space to stretch your legs. There are so many ways you can improve your office working environment and it would take dozens of pages if I were to propose here. With your own creativity or with the right consultancy from any of your nearby office furniture planners, you could always consider the improvement of other areas in the office such as the pantry area, reception area, guest waiting area and many more. It’s worth the investment as better office furniture would surely ensure the productivity of the people in it. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
