Office workers usually spend 40 hours a week at work and it is not necessary to demonstrate the impact of the working environment on the worker’s life. To better manage spaces and increase the well-being of employees and even increase productivity, the offices of the future combine connected objects with nomadic work and creative spaces.
Spaces promoting well-being
Office spaces need to reflect as effectively as possible the company’s values and culture. Their role is crucial to convince future clients or collaborators from the very beginning.
Although the innovative workspace is not intended to make collaborators feel at home, it must nevertheless enable them to carry out their activity with serenity. This happens through the design of spaces that attend the different moments of the working day, such as foning areas, brainstorming rooms, relaxation zones, etc... Well-designed spaces make the work of the partner considerably easier, strengthening indirectly the company’s image.
Smart office, what is it exactly?
The smart office concept integrates new technologies into office configuration. The new workspace adopts the recent standards of connected co-workers. For example, it contains automatic lights or thermal sensors that record the data of the users to regulate the lighting or the temperature of rooms. The intelligent office is full of solutions that promote well-being, allowing to optimize the potential of the collaborators. By combining employee needs with technology, the smart office invites you to work in the best possible conditions.
What are the challenges of the smart office?
Arranging the furniture in such a way that it provides real comfort increases the motivation and efficiency of the employees. To promote their well-being, it is necessary to design a pleasant environment. This is also a way of affirming the company’s culture and values.
Working space management
An effective working environment is the main factor of well-being for 35% of employees. A welcoming decor increases motivation and performance.
Today’s employees are also much more mobile than before within the company. Therefore, environments must be more flexible to respond to their different needs with, for example, rooms dedicated to individual work, to team meetings or even relaxation areas. Some colors have a proven impact on the type of performance at work: red will stimulate productivity, yellow will favor concentration and blue will develop creativity.
Silence and tranquility are also essential elements of a quality workspace. Footfall noises, objects falling to the ground, conversations, etc..., are a major source of noise nuisance for workers. This problem is easily solved by installing carpeting which turns out to be an excellent acoustic insulator.
Carpeting, indispensable element of workspaces
Carpeting embodies the image and values of the company, so it is important to choose the appropriate textile coating, both at the chromatic level and at the stylistic or technical level. Whether for open space offices or individual offices, the choice for specific carpeting must be carefully targeted to create an atmosphere contributing to produce well-being.
