As we’re approaching the new year, you’re probably thinking about making resolutions – be it to eat healthily or to exercise more. But why not make a different pledge this year – one to improve your working environment? Tweaking the physical layout of your office could be just the change that’s needed in your office, optimising work space and making employees feel more valued and driven to work.
So, if 2020 holds an office restyle, why not let us at AEG Partitions help you to get it right first time?
- Evaluate space
Before you start shifting equipment and rearranging the office, take a look at where employees sit and the location of office equipment. Does the space allow them to work effectively? Are printers and shared equipment easy to access? Is there enough light?
Evaluating how space is currently used in your office will allow you to create the perfect workspace for your staff – utilising all available space.
- Organise clutter
A heavily cluttered office isn’t going to inspire anyone and is likely to give prospective clients and visitors a negative impression of your business.
Consider installing storage solutions like under the desk drawers, shelves and lockers to ensure documents, equipment and personal belongings are stored out of sight and harm’s way, maintaining a more organised environment.
- Enhance the décor
Something as simple as a lick of paint on the walls can make all the difference in a dull office.
There are countless other ways you can improve the interior décor – be it new lighting to brighten up the area, posters and picture frames to give the office a more stylish vibe or movable wall systems that blend effortlessly with the rest of the room whilst allowing you to reconfigure space as and when you need to.
- Divide space
Dividing the office into separate departments is a great way to encourage staff to work collectively. It enables them to communicate effectively with their team without distracting other members of staff.
A movable partition wall can also be drawn across to create a temporary meeting room – so you needn’t worry about having to wait for the ‘meeting room’ to be free.
Our fitters have the skill and expertise to install movable walls within just a few hours, meaning you could be reaping the benefits of extra privacy and adaptable space, sooner than you think!
- Control acoustics
Although the aesthetics of your office are important, you don’t want to forget about the acoustics.
Our acoustic movable walls are great for sectioning off equipment like printers and photocopiers – and also work well in environments where nosier employees (i.e. salespeople who spend most of the working day on the phone) need to be kept away from staff that require a quiet space to concentrate.
Is 2020 the year of the movable wall for your office? If you would like to know more about the benefits our movable wall systems can bring to your workspace don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on 0333 305 0050. You can also email us at email@example.com and we’ll do everything we can to help.
