5 Tips to Restore Office Productivity

Little Goblins - Friday, August 21, 2015

Five problems that may be contributing to a lower output of office productivity and the solutions that will help you solve them.

In the majority of offices across the world there are often many distractions that prevent employees from producing work at an optimal level. These distractions can range from mild problems to larger issues; everything from poor lighting at a person's desk, to severe bodily discomfort that an employee may be experiencing due to their workstation, can prevent a person from being their most productive self.

Below, you will find some of the most common problems office workers experience that often contribute to a lack of productivity, along with the simple solutions that can help you fix them. By implementing the below solutions, with any luck, your office should be producing its best work in no time!


Clutter and a lack of space can be a major distraction and contribute to a slower output of work.


Try clearing and organizing your desk first. If you find that there is still not enough space to lay out your daily work, consider upgrading your office's desks and cubicles to workstations and/or systems that have been designed for optimal workflow and ease of use.


Tired eyes caused by bad lighting.


If you have the ability to move your desk in your office, position your table by the window to take advantage of the natural light. If moving towards a window is not an option, or you find that you require more light, a correctly positioned desk lamp with a bright bulb is sure to help shine a light on this issue. (Pun intended!)


Have you noticed that you or your employees have issues sitting still throughout the work day? Many of us that work in an office environment feel the need to get up from our desks to escape the monotony of being seated for eight or more hours every day. What's more, office workers are now being encouraged to take breaks from sitting and stretch throughout the day for health reasons.


Height adjustable desks allow office workers the freedom to continue to work while standing, while also enabling the user to sit back down again, should they get tired of being on their feet.


Bodily aches and pains that result from poorly set up workstations, including neck, back and wrist pain.


Proper ergonomic solutions that address poor seating and workstation set ups. Solutions can range from ergonomic chairs, to keyboard trays and foot rests, to monitor arms that can be positioned to hold a monitor at the ideal height, distance and slant for each person.


Office paper work inefficiencies that lead to the same work being done more than once.


A proper filing system can prevent oversights in communication and multiple employees from completing the same work.

For general office solutions, please do not hesitate to contact us and our experienced sales team would be happy to assist you in finding the best office furniture for your needs.
