5 Reasons a Well-Designed Workspace is the Key to Success

Most Americans spend over 90,000 hours at work throughout their lifetime. That’s nearly a quarter of your life—which is why a well-designed workspace is so important. When your workspace is somewhere you want to be instead of somewhere you have to be, you’re more successful. Here’s why.

1. Increased Productivity

Office environment sets the standard for productivity. A well-designed space with an engaging environment helps you feel more fulfilled and more focused. When productivity is improved, profitability soon follows. 

2. Impressed Clients

Clients often view the environment in which you work as an indicator of your credibility and overall success. A space that is professional, practical, and inviting leads to increased client satisfaction and retention.  

3. Improved Employee Morale 

Most employees spend more time in their office than they do at home. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how office design can subconsciously--and consciously--affect people’s moods and attitudes. Office interiors have a big role in influencing the emotions of employees. Natural light, sufficient space, and appealing aesthetics are all contributing factors to improved employee morale. 

4.  Intentional Organization 

If an office is cluttered, outdated, or poorly designed, customers and clients might think the same about the company. A well-designed office allows you to be intentional in your organization, keeping you to be relaxed, recharged, and always on-track. 

5. Attracting Talent

Office design can enhance your brand and help share your story. It allows you to reinforce your uniqueness and set yourself apart. That, in turn, helps you attract top-talent. Whether it’s engineers, creatives or accountants, selling your space is important. 

In conclusion, a happy person is a hard-working person. And that’s why a well-designed office space is so important. It allows you to do your best and feel your best.

    Coworking Meets Luxury in the West Loop

    I don’t know about you, but often times my environment dictates my productivity. When I try to power through work at home I find myself taking breaks to do laundry or grab a snack from the fridge, wander to bed and need a nap, or the dreaded “I can get this done while watching The Real Housewives.” And while I’ve looked into coworking spaces to get my blogging done none ever fit my needs. They felt too informal, had kitchens I could wander in to for beer and coffee and get distracted talking to ...  Read More...
