Every weekday morning, millions of people wake up, get dressed, and go to work—without ever stepping outside their house. Today, one in five Americans works from home at least one day per week. Yet this evolution of work hasn’t necessarily led to an evolution of the home office.
“Where do I start?” It’s a question many ask, especially at the onset of a large project. When that project is investing in a new office, it’s important to take the right approach from the very beginning. For small businesses just getting started, here are three questions that will get you thinking in the right direction.
Oftentimes, New Year resolutions involve dedicating time and effort to building a daily routine that will lead to a healthier work - life balance. While resolutions like these are well intentioned, what many people don’t realize is that their goals can be affected by their workplace environment.
In 2017, consider incorporating ergonomic furniture in your workplace? Even small changes to your office will help reduce stress, promote healthy habits and increase productivity.
It’s no secret that there are multiple health risks associated with a stagnant lifestyle. Research has shown that sitting for too long each day can lead to muscle degeneration and weight gain, cardiovascular issues and even, paradoxically, increased fatigue.
The modern office space is not only a driver of company performance but is also a reflection of company culture and image. Unlike a promising idea or product, company culture cannot be easily imitated or replicated, which makes it a valuable resource for any organizational leader.
Change happens at every stage of small business growth—and not always according to plan. When unforeseen changes occur (such as a need to hire additional staff), companies often question the viability of their current space. However, with the right strategy, small businesses can scale within an existing space without having to relocate. Here are three ways to grow without the growing pains.
Time and again, scientific research has confirmed a range of health risks associated with office work. Though seemingly minor at first, these ailments accumulate over time and affect the day-to-day lives of employees.
Advances in mobile technology are helping today’s start-ups, established businesses and aspiring techies emerge as leaders of the new knowledge economy. These new forms of communication have changed how and where we work. However, despite the freedom to work anywhere at anytime, today’s office spaces remain one of the most valuable assets for any successful company.
People work together all the time, yet it’s difficult to make collaboration happen. To better understand collaboration at work, Herman Miller conducted research on four continents. The findings reaffirm that collaboration is dependent on corporate culture, technology, and the facility. Offering a variety of workspaces, providing vertical space for display, and improving wayfinding can all help people collaborate.
An impression is made the moment someone enters your space. Are they greeted by boxes of supplies tucked away in the corner, worn out lobby furniture, an empty reception desk, or do they enter a space with ambience, music and happy employees?
