5 office ideas that will make your team happier while boosting productivity

Wednesday 22nd February 2017

It might sound painfully obvious, but you really shouldn’t stick people with different backgrounds and different aims in the same office environment and expect them to thrive equally. However, a quick look around you might just prove that the exact opposite tends to be the case. The problem is that many office design concepts have become so common that they’re implemented without a second thought in every workspace.

Yet, forcing a uniform aesthetic and structural design across the company building is idealistic at best, and extremely harmful to productivity and wellbeing at worst.

And can you think of an employer who wants disgruntled and disengaged workers punching in every day? Neither can we!

Here are our five guiding principles for happier and more productive offices:

  1. Customise each workspace to the team members using it;
  2. Increase natural light through the use of glass;
  3. Windows are for everyone, not just the people in the corner office! Leave some open space along the exterior;
  4. Strike a balance between privacy and open, communal areas;
  5. Add interactivity to your walls by hanging chalkboards, whiteboards, notice boards and glass with plenty of pins, sticky notes and erasable writing tools to promote idea sharing in a visual and collaborative manner.

Is it time your office got a facelift? Better still, let’s cheer it up and make it a place where people can work together in a stimulating and interactive environment.

The Importance of Value Pricing

April 2017

Pricing is always an important consideration in business, especially in an environment of cut-throat competition, when we think that the market is saturated and that customers look for nothing else but price. But are we sure that this is the reality?

Building Bridges

March 2017

The aim of any bridge is to span from point A to point B, hopefully providing a shorter route and safe access. At iAS, we believe that bridges can serve as much more than a mere physical link between two points.

Bad news does not age well

March 2017

By now we are all familiar with the colossal mistake that occurred during the 2017 Oscars. In my 30-year profession, I have seen accountants blamed for many things, but it never occurred to me that we would also manage to give our two-penny worth at an Oscars event.

Europe's 60th Birthday

March 2017

On 25th March, leaders of the 27 EU member states (UK excluded) will gather in Rome, together with Senior Representatives of the European Institutions, to mark the 60th anniversary of the signature of the Treaty of Rome. The timing of this special anniversary is almost Kafkaesque...
