The chances are that when you first launched your business, it was just you running it solo. You may have worked from a small office or even from the spare room in your home. However, in time, as your business grew, you created a commercial office and started taking on employees. Now that your company is quite successful and you have a large team of employees to manage, it’s time to think about your commercial office. The chances are that when it was originally designed, you only had a few team members to think about. However, now that your team has grown with your business, there are some improvements you could make to your commercial office space.
To help you to do that and make your commercial office a nicer place for your team to work, below are a few ideas and suggestions.
Update the design and layout of the building
To improve the appearance of your commercial office and make it a nicer place to work, update the design and decor of it. Hire an interior designer to come up with some ideas for updating the space, and choose the one that you like most. As well as updating the design and decor of the space, perhaps it could also be worth changing the layout. Think about whether there is a way that you could use the space that you have more efficiently. Perhaps you could change the direction that your employees’ desks face? Get creative and see what you can come up with.
Make organization easier
As your company grows, there’s a need to become more organized. The more team members you have working for you, the more organized your commercial office needs to be. Take the mail sorting, for instance. When you first took on a team of staff, there were probably only five or six people’s mail to keep track of. Now, however, there is most probably a lot more mail to organize and sort out. To ensure that everyone gets their mail, consider investing in mailboxes that have various mail slots. Assign a slot to each employee, so that the mailman puts each person’s mail into the right slot. You can get these types of mailboxes from companies like Mailbox Works, for example. For all the best methods of making organization easier, read up and do your research - there are plenty of useful resources online.
Add extra features
To improve the quality of office life for your employees, think about adding some extra features to the office. If there’s no an on-site canteen, think about adding a small one to an area that has unused space. Or, how about adding a new coffee machine and having fresh sandwiches and salads delivered to the office each day? If you want to encourage your employees to stay in shape, how about turning an unused area into an employee gym? Could adding air conditioning be beneficial perhaps? Think about all the extra things that you could offer you employees, and see if they’re doable.
Hopefully, these suggestions will make the process of improving your office that little bit easier.
