A New Year, A New Look For BusinessPublished 12.12.13
The beginning of a new year is a great time to rejuvenate your business; a fresh start for a new year. Once the excitement of Christmas has subsided, you need to ensure motivation and employees and enthusiasm of clients remains high, and doesn’t wane in the post-Christmas lull.
One way you can do this is by changing your office layout, appearance and furnishings with a comprehensive office fit-out. In our latest article, we run through some of the reasons why a new refurbishment could well be the best option for your business this New Year.
Motivate Your Employees
When you make the effort to improve the look of your business, it can have a dramatic impact on the morale of your employees. It sends a clear message that this is a new start, and it encourages the members of your team to take a fresh look at what they are doing too. By creating a new, fresh and professional looking environment, it can make your staff take pride in your business – and take pride in their own work and capabilities as well.
The simple act of changing the environment can dramatically alter the way people think – it can also encourage creativity and new ideas.
An office refurbishment not only mentally rejuvenates your employees, it can also increase their productivity. If, for example, you’re changing working methods, incorporating new departments or shifting job roles, then an office refurbishment can help them to do their job more effectively (e.g. standing workstations for graphic designers) which, in turn, can increase their productivity.
Taking this step shows your staff that you feel confident about your business future, and this motivates the members of your time to put more of themselves into their jobs. Taking this step also shows your employees that you care about their environment, and they are likely to repay this acknowledgement by working harder.
Create the Image Your Business Deserves
Changing the look of your office can be great for improving the image and perception others have of your business. A professional appearance and presenting a particular appearance can go a long way to creating the right first impression for visiting clients and potential customers.
Clients and customers are also likely to view these improvements as evidence that things are going well for your company, and they will be more willing to put their trust in you. If your business depends on passing trade, you are likely to attract more of these customers by updating the look of your premises.
Create Extra Space in Your Office
If you intend to hire some new team members, you are probably going to need some extra space; one of the benefits of refurbishing your office is that it can free up space that is currently being underutilised, or is being utilised ineffectively through poor layout design.
The new space can be used to create desk space for new employees, add new departments, amalgamate offices from different location, or you could even use this extra space to create a meeting room or comfortable client waiting area.
