WHY DO WE NEED THEM AND HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THEM?
The industry you work in is irrelevant, productivity is always key. A creative workspace could be the missing link in a successful business operation. The UK Work Place Survey showed that poorly designed offices could be costing British businesses up to £135 billion per year. A projection based on high-value professionals who reported that a better working environment would help them be 19% more productive on average.
“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” – Charles Mingus
Creative Workspaces Attract and Retain. To attract the best talent in your industry your workspace needs to excite and be inviting. Creative workspaces are becoming an important factor when it comes to recruitment. When you want the best talent, you have to provide the best environment. Flexible working stations are just as important as go-to quiet areas.
Maintain Your Brand Throughout. Your workspace is an opportunity to shout about your motives and ethos. Don’t be ashamed to bring potential clients to your office. Your office will enhance the company profile significantly, make it stand out. The beauty is you don’t have to move premises, this can be easily achieved through window graphics, FabriFrames or even printed floor spots!
Adopt a Colour Scheme to Inspire. Are your walls magnolia? We are hoping you answered no, but just in case you didn’t, read on. Choose colours that compliment your brand but also inspire staff. For inspiration try yellow, a cheerful, high-spirited colour. It represents a bright future, hope, and wisdom.
Consider Your Employees. When generating ideas, it’s very important to have flexibility in the way you work. Give people the ability to join in with concepts or conversations when ideas are flowing. More so, cater the changes to individuals and not the corporate side of the business.
