In business management, the details make the difference. One of those “little things” is to allow each member of your team to decorate their space according to their tastes and options.
A study by the Exeter University of England indicates that allowing employees to participate in the design of their offices increases the feeling of well-being by 47%; creativity, 45% and productivity up to 38%.
One of the advice offered by the specialists is that the open offices, where there is little privacy, have not yielded results because the worker is easily distracted. The best thing is to develop cubicles or separate the spaces so that each collaborator has space and can decorate it to taste.
An office must have ventilation and natural lighting, this causes the body to increase the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter substance that causes a sensation of well-being.
In your office, you should not miss the plants either. There are studies that indicate that decorating the office with plants improves the attention capacity and reduces the stress level of your work team.
Your collaborators can decorate their workspace with photographs of their relatives, friends or colleagues. In addition to trophies or awards that remind them that the company values them.
- Decorating with accessories or details is not a problem until you reach an extreme. The workspace should not be impersonal, but neither should a cubicle or office be allowed to be recharged by so many objects that in the end, they become elements of distraction.
- Another important aspect of the decoration is the comfort of the employees. This aspect, without doubt, improve productivity.
- Try to make the furniture curved as they give more security to employees than furniture with very sharp angles that give a sense of danger.
