Art - 'the expression of human creative skill and imagination. Typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power'. Adding a deeper philosophical meaning to both the culture and aesthetics of your office space, art is something which can be enjoyed by all - something that leaves a lasting impression on anyone entering or leaving the building.
The workplace has always been an important place for people, especially now, after over a year of being physically distanced when working from home. As the trend shifts from having a 30/70 ratio of open space to closed-off space to now having 50/50 or in some cases 70/30 collaboration space - the social space is an important part of this. Having a social space links with the concept of flexible working, and is about boosting collaboration between employees allowing a more relaxed approach in comparison to the previous formal arrangement. As gen Z continue to make changes to the work approach, it has become increasingly popular to meet at Starbucks for a good coffee whilst having a meeting. This engagement across a social setting often allows for a different experience rather than across a desk in the office.
A clear desk resembles a clear mind, we are often reminded. Organization is a key player on the productivity team, and in particular a tidy workspace. Considering we spend on average, over 50% of our time at our desk, it's important that it is organized effectively so that time is not wasted searching trying to find the right cable to charge your computer for example. Equally, we all know what it's like to work with that stubborn wire in the way, that just won't budge. It's easy to spend so much time trying to work around the cables on your desk, rather than finding an efficient way that works for you.
Despite the move to remote-/hybrid-working, the office is still alive and well. It’s just largely taken on a new function as a place to meet rather than a place to do tasks.

Having an inspirational and engaging office space can not only boost the morale and productivity of the staff, but can also act as an effective marketing tool for the stakeholders that you bring into the office.

There are countless benefits of staying fit and doing regular exercise. Not only will you see yourself much more focused at work, significantly more productive but also you reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening illnesses, improve the quality of your sleep and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
Back pain, neck pain and eye strain. All too familiar, yet simple to fix. Around 90% of the time we spend in the office is in front of a computer or other electronic devices - and why shouldn’t it be, as technology continues to advance, it's becoming more and more of a power tool that needs to be embraced and implemented. However, there are ways of making the use of technology a better and more comfortable experience through solutions such as ergonomics.
The best thing about office refurbishment is that it doesn’t necessarily require you to move offices. Finding a way to repurpose and re-utilise the space you currently have can bring many benefits to your business, in ways you may not have thought about before.
