How do you know if your workspace is healthy? How do you improve the productivity of your employees? What does your office say about your work culture?
To answer these, it’s imperative that you ask yourself the following questions first:
Does your workspace have a good mix of private and public spaces?

While open-plan offices promote transparency and trust, private spaces where employers can relax and take some time off are equally important. Research has shown these spaces boost employee morale and productivity.
Does your office promote an equal amount of work and play?

You know what they say about ‘all work and no play’. For that very reason, gyms, workout spaces, and play arenas are the new trends in workspace design. The merrier your employees, the better.
Are your cafeterias and break rooms welcoming and well-equipped?

Cafeterias are the areas where your employees relax and have good conversations. Make sure they’re well-equipped and welcoming – the more the employees feel at home, the more the chances of them being happy at work.
Once you get answers to all these questions, you’ll mostly know what has to be done to improve the ethos of your workspace.
