It is a well known fact that employee well-being is strongly correlated with job performance. Engaged employees are more productive, have lower turnover rates, lower absenteeism and drive higher profits. Increased productivity and retention are good reasons to take a new look at your workplace layout.

It's no secret that a well-designed workplace is a more pleasant environment to spend work hours in than one that is poorly planned and decorated.
RBB Economics, South 32, & Bidvest
A new survey by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) (2016) found a correlation between office design and the bottom line. There is a strong connection between well-designed workplaces, employee engagement and productivity.

A well designed and organised office makes employees feel happier and valued. It can boost morale, foster better teamwork and create harmony between colleagues. This translates to better customer service, which in turn leads to more sales and higher growth for the company.

An environment that clearly communicates your brand identity also helps your team members feel like they belong. Needless to say, employees who feel a stronger sense of purpose stay longer and are more motivated to exceed their targets.

When designing layout, think in terms of "neighbourhoods". Neighbourhoods are areas where workers with similar needs are accommodated. By positioning work stations, collaborating groups, and equipment in logical locations, each employee can save a few seconds or minutes on various tasks.

Beyond improving comfort, proper furniture also improved employee satisfaction in the IIDA study (40% of survey respondents were happier when they could adjust their furniture). Standing desks, adjustable workstations, and other customised or flexible workstation options can help employees work in the best way possible.

By paying attention to a few key areas, you can improve employee engagement, productivity, and collaboration, each of which is a benefit for the company. Happier, more successful employees are more likely to stay with their companies. Good office design can support them.
