One thing employers do not appreciate is that places of work have no colour, character or charm. Yes, you may sell printer paper for a living, but your office doesn’t have to look like it. We all spend vast amounts of our lives in the workplace, so why can’t our offices be warm, welcoming and actually a nice place to be?
As a team of office fit-out contractors in London, we’re here to squash the belief that bland is better. It’s not – not for productivity, efficiency or well-being. Here are five reasons you should fit-out your London office.
The furniture, fittings, flooring and partitioning of your office all have an impact on the efficiency of your team. In London an office fit-out allows you to create a space that meets the unique needs of your business and use the available space as efficiently as you can.
It could be that the current layout of your office makes cooperation and collaboration between employees difficult. Or, you may be opening a new business and want to make the most of every inch of available space. Whatever your requirements, we are perfectly placed to help
We all know the importance of first impressions. If you visit a prospective service provider and their offices are dark and dated and their staff look miserable, you’re not going to be desperate to become part of their team.
The aesthetic appeal of your offices can have a huge impact on the perception of your business. The systems and processes you have in place may be the same as the dowdy workplace above, but if your office is light, bright, clean and spacious, it will have a positive effect on your visitors.
The colour scheme plays an important role in the success of your office fit-out, with research showing the right colours can increase your employees’ moods, health, well-being and happiness. Orange lifts the spirits, yellow makes people feel happy and green creates a feeling of comfort and relaxation.
Of course, it’s also important to create a professional, well organised space. No office should be all sunshine and rainbows, but the thoughtful use of colour can really help.
The green credentials of a business are becoming increasingly important for customers and clients as well as the employees and the business owners themselves. An office fit-out in London allows you to implement environmentally-friendly processes, architecture and technology. This can boost employee morale, improve the company’s image and help to attract more clients.
If your business is growing quickly then it may be time to look at your current layout and see how you can use your existing space more effectively. By taking the helicopter view, you can better judge where more room is needed and see where there’s too much redundant space.
At The Invisible Group, we complete office fit-outs in London and office refurbishments in London for businesses large and small, creating useable vibrant spaces that help you get the best out of your team. Get in touch to discuss your requirements or request your free quote today.
