Ways to Create a More Engaging Work Environment

Jodi Young - Thursday, February 05, 2015

With people spending so much time at work, how can you make the work place a more engaging and energizing place to be?

 When employees work long hours in environments that are dull and boring can take a toll on their productivity and their health. We try and create engaging environments for schools and places for people to learn, so why don’t we do the same for where people work? Here are some easy ways to make your work place more exciting and dynamic to keep employees stimulated throughout their day.

1. Get rid of fluorescent and bad lighting: lighting is one of the most important things in a work environment, fluorescent lights can cause headaches and other annoyances get as much natural light as possible and use pot lighting instead.

2.Create Open Space: if the office is full of cubicles create an open area where people can leave their desks to work, chat, or take a break. Eating, working, relaxing all in the same place becomes repetitive and dull.

 

 

3. Create private space: if your office is extremely open concept with everyone working in close proximity, make a quiet area or room where people can go to get some peace and quiet and work alone when needed.

4. Keep Employees Comfortable:  making employees comfortable in their work setting is one of the most important things an employer can do, make sure they have proper ergonomic seating, that they have access to good drinking water, coffee or tea, and even some snacks to keep them going throughout the day. Also make sure the office temperature is neither too hot nor too cold making people extremely uncomfortable and distracted.

5. Encourage Breaks: if your employees are working long hours in their chairs looking at computer screens encouraging them to take short breaks can make a huge difference. A quick walk around the block or coffee break can re-energize workers and make them more productive, it is also very good for their overall health.
