Used Office Furniture

Facilitating the right working environment for your employees is paramount to productivity. A large part of this is choosing the right office furniture and configuring it in the best way. In this guide, we’re looking at creative ways you can boost productivity simply by choosing the right furniture.

Collaboration vs independent work zones

One of the modern open-plan office dilemmas is how to get the balance right between collaboration and independent work zones. It can be beneficial to separate your teams into departments that require lots of detail-orientated work vs departments that require more collaborative communication. But, if you only have an open-plan space for all your teams, it can be difficult to separate the two.

Meeting pods are a good solution. They are a modular office space which conveniently provides a dedicated collaborative workspace without distracting those focused on their independent work.

Meeting booths are also suitable for this.

Prioritise comfort and ergonomics

Comfort and ergonomics are important for any workspace. It will help prevent common aches and pains from sitting for long periods. It’s all about protecting posture and supporting the body to boost concentration and comfort. If your employees are sitting for 8 or more hours a day, ergonomics is especially important.

Natural light is important

On a side note, natural light and fresh air is often correlated to greater alertness. It’s not what furniture you have, where it’s placed counts too. Placing desks nearer to a natural light source, such as a window or beneath a skylight can make a world of difference to productivity levels. Darker spaces are more likely to encourage production of the sleep hormone – which certainly won’t help productivity.

Think about company culture

Presentation is important. Having a clear company culture that’s reflected across all aspects of your business will help your employees feel part of something bigger.

Creature comforts

Creature comforts such as office plants and positive decorative elements can also play their part in boosting employee productivity levels.
