Companies investigate office space to improve employee happiness, productivity

Employee reward and recognition programs are looking beyond workers' personal desires and are focusing on the physical office space to improve company culture and productivity.

Employee reward and recognition programs are looking beyond workers' personal desires and are focusing on the physical office space to improve company culture and productivity.

Firms are starting to embrace the theory that there's a strong correlation between space and a workforce's overall motivation and productivity, Design Build Source reports. As a result, many businesses are hiring designers to help them transform their offices into a place where staff members want to be every day.

Some of the changes made include increasing the amount of natural light, improving air quality and placing plants. Additionally, many businesses are breaking down traditional cubicles to open up spaces and improve the social atmosphere, the news source explains.

"The general feedback from … companies seems to be pretty positive, and there are a lot of people looking at those who are leading in those spaces," Malcolm Alder, digital economy partner with design company KPMG, told Design Build Source. "Whilst we don't do things just to be 'me too,' if that is the way the future workplace is going to look, then to a certain level you do need to be marching to a similar beat to major clients."

Companies can work with design firms to create spaces that match both business needs and client expectations while also creating a positive area for employees.
