6 Ways Your Office Surroundings Can Positively Impact Productivity

Whilst it is true that human behaviour can be tricky to predict, it is also true that through the introduction of a number of subtle techniques, it can be positively influenced.

By utilising tips that can help to increase organisational skills or boost morale and efficiency, subtle changes can result in significant improvements in many key areas of the workplace.

The working environment has the ability to influence the mood and disposition of your staff as well as helping to maximise their overall levels of productivity. The good news is that many of these methods can be introduced with the minimum of fuss and at very little expense.

Take a look below as we explore 6 ways your office can positively impact productivity.

No. 1 – Optimise Lighting Levels

The lighting at work is obviously very important to the health and safety of everyone using the workplace but did you know that the amount of bright light being let into an office has been shown to make people happier, reducing both anxiety and depression?

Optimising the lighting levels of your office can play a key role in helping to improve the well-being of your workforce, a key factor in maximising productivity.

No. 2 – Positive Re-Enforcement

Work can be a grind sometimes. Try and keep the mood a positive one by posting mission and vision statements around the office to help provide some additional focus. Make sure that customer reviews are readily accessible so that your staff can see the role that they have in creating a positive customer experience. It’s always important to ensure that the positive messages do not go unsaid, after all, everyone likes to read positive comments – particularly if the comments are about them!

No. 3 – Setting The Tone With Music

Listening to music at work can make you more productive, according to research. Obviously this does come with a couple of caveats.

  • Choosing the right genre of music to appeal to everyone, may prove to be a little tricky.
  • Music with very clear lyrics may prove to be a little more distracting than you would like.

A bit of experimentation should help you to find the right level to keep a smile on the face of your workforce and productivity levels high.

No. 4 – Regulating Your Office Temperature

Many studies have been conducted over the years to try and identify the “perfect” temperatures for a productive workplace environment, and the common consensus is that peak productivity can be achieved by creating a temperative around be around 71 degrees F.

Regulating the temperature within an office is now far more cost-effective than previously and through the application of solar control window film, a far more affordable solution can be found when compared to cranking the AC up during the summer and the heating turned up during the winter.

No. 5 – Introducing Plantlife

The addition of some office plants offers an easy way to add some colour of colour but did you know that studies have shown that they can increase your employees’ productivity?

A study reported by Wired UK recently indicated plants could lead to a boost of up to 15 percent. There are varying theories as to why plants work, including their appealing “natural” scenery and oxygenating effect; whatever the reason, plants are proven to increase well-being and productivity.

No. 6 – Glass & Wall Graphics

The application of glass graphics can significantly enhance the working environment in a variety of ways in one quick and easy go.

These include:

  • Adding A Dash Of Colour – Bring brand colours to life and affect the mood of the office in a positive way
  • Reduced Maintenance – If point 5 is one you would like to explore but you are worried about potential maintenance implications, why not create the appearance of plant life without the hassle of maintenance with glass graphics
  • Promoting A Positive Message – Keep staff engaged and appreciated by having the values and mission, testimonials

Why not try different graphics in different rooms to see how they affect your team’s responses and productivity? Check out the images below for some recent examples.

4 Ways Privacy Window Film Can Improve Your Property

Understandably, many people may be worried about privacy where glass doors and windows are concerned. As modern and beautiful as they look, some may perceive having expansive glass doors and windows in their property as a little intrusive, with those on the outside being able to look in.

With the addition of a privacy window film, however, not having enough privacy becomes a non-issue.

Business and residential property owners alike can add a privacy window film to their glass windows and doors, and begin enjoying the following benefits of having glass doors and windows:

1. Increased energy efficiency

Glass windows and doors use the latest in available design and construction engineering technology. As such, they are likely to be highly energy efficient.

Still, the addition of an insulating privacy window film to save energy is even better. In this regard, adding energy-efficient privacy window film to the glass windows and doors in your property is an investment likely to continue paying for itself for years to come.

2. A modern and inviting design

Glass windows and doors are a great design feature to add to any property – residential and business alike. They can significantly open up any space, bringing in natural light and create an inviting indoor-outdoor feel.

Adding a one-way mirror tint can further add to the modern look, while opaque or frosted designs can add an extra design element as well as increased privacy. These seemingly small change in design element adds monetary value to a property as it is modern and in line with the latest property design features.

3. Exciting advertising and more attractive business property design

One of the great features of a privacy window film is the diversity it offers. Privacy window films are available in an unending array of colours, degree of privacy offered, and design elements. As far as designs are concerned, adding your company logo, tagline, contact information, or designs with your signature colours to your business storefront are great ways to use the versatility of a privacy window film to help your business make a bold statement. Be as bold as you dear.

4. Keep the outside in without the detrimental effects

A major concern of having glass doors and windows is the effects of the outdoor elements on the same, namely, the glare of the sun. The addition of a UV privacy window film is the perfect solution for this.

Did you know burglaries increase by 25% in Autumn and Winter months?

With the pressures of day-to-day life, home security is often overlooked. That’s why National Home Security Month (NHSM) is here to raise awareness around the importance of home security so you can be safe in the knowledge that your home, family and belongings are protected.
