There can be tremendous value in being physically comfortable in the office, from increased productivity to a rise in employee happiness. Here are a few helpful upgrades you can make to ensure employees are comfortable and working at the top of their game.
Invest in Ergonomic Equipment
From adjustable office chairs to sit-stand desks, computer monitors, laptop risers, and more, there are an abundance of ways to introduce more ergonomic furniture into your office space. This will allow each employee to feel flexible in their workspace, increasing their mobility and comfortability and, in turn, boosting their overall productivity throughout the day.
Find the Right Office Temperature
While it may not be the first thing you think of, the temperature of the office space can directly impact the mood of employees. When the office is too hot or too cold, employees are more likely to make mistakes as they struggle to get comfortable.
Finding the right office temperature can take some push and pull, especially as we navigate between seasons. Consider getting personal fans for employees who run a little warmer and warming solutions for employees who run a little cooler.
Keep it Clean
A clean office is a comfortable office. Maintain a regular cleaning schedule, particularly in areas of high foot traffic such as the breakroom, restrooms, office lobby, conference rooms, and more. Whether you have a rotating clean-up duty for employees in the office or have a third party cleaning service who come regularly, maintaining the cleanliness of the space not only for the comfortability of those working but also for their health is important.
