How to Create a Balanced Workplace

Giving Employees the Opportunity for Collaboration & Privacy in the Workplace

And how it can be extremely beneficial.

 One of the biggest issues facing today’s workplace is being able to have a workplace that fosters collaboration and learning between employees but also gives them privacy and time to work alone when needed. Usually offices don’t do a great job getting the right balance of spaces that condone collaboration and the amount of space for people to sit in quiet and think and focus.

 

 

Many workers need places where they can go for private moments to think, recharge, and really execute their work. These spaces can become hard to find in the open concept workplace which is usually very loud with constant interaction. Open design can increase collaboration and interaction between employees but it can also decrease productivity.

The fix to this problem is giving employee’s choice. The option to work in a quiet setting but also areas where people in large or small groups can get together and collaborate and learn from one another. We think the best way of doing this is creating spaces that are designated for the latter. Rooms with tables that can be moved around into a boardroom shape or into smaller groups gives people the freedom of how they want to interact. Seating areas with comfortable couches and chairs that are a designated quite space at certain times can allow people to sit and think in quiet and execute their work. Other times these areas could be common areas where co-workers go to talk to one another. Teaming stations where people work in close vicinity with one another but have panels that give them some quiet and privacy to do their work is a good compromise.

 

Giving employees the option between “me” and “we” time will allow them to choose the space that fits their needs at certain times. Not all workers are extroverts or people who can focus with a lot of noise and back chatter behind them, realizing this will make employees more productive and also happier within their work environment!

Modern Office Furniture

How to Get a Modern Look For Your Office

Modern Office Furniture That is Practical and Efficient for Workspaces

 

Today companies are designing their offices with a clean modern aesthetic. Gone are the days of big workstations and chunky boardroom tables, taking their place is white furniture, metal finishes, and cool colour accents. But when does modern become too modern? When does design and aesthetic take away from practicality and efficiency? After all companies are looking for longevity out of their investment in office furniture.

Here are some product tips to give your office that  Modern feel without sacrificing key components of your office furniture.

Workstations: Today every office furniture company is making workstations that are still extremely functional, but they look very different from the traditional three walled cubicle. Voi is a modern looking workstation that can be configured in many different ways with numerous colour, laminate, and finish options.

Seating: A bulky leather office chair while comfortable, is not very modern. A thin white chair that is more comfortable with built in lumbar support and other ergonomic features, now that is modern. The G20 chair looks great but also is one of the best ergonomic chairs on the market.

Boardroom: Our Bridges boardroom table is practical with a very cool aesthetic, the metal legs and bases stand out and look great with a dark wood finish or a white top.

 

Reception Seating: Guest seating is a great way to add some personality and design to your office. Since many people aren’t sitting for long periods of time it does not have to be as ergonomic as other office furniture. Flock, for example, has a modern look and comes in endless configurations and colours to show your personality to customers and clients.

 Getting a modern looking office without sacrificing effective office furniture can be easy. It can reflect the personality of your business and employees, also who wouldn’t love to work in a modern and inspiring place? For more information on any of these products come check out our showroom or contact one of our professional sales staff.

The Modern Day Office: Teaming & Collaboration

Jodi Young - Tuesday, June 10, 2014

The past few years our company has been noticing a huge trend in the industry. Customers are transforming their office spaces from traditional cubicles and private offices into open concept and teaming areas.

The reason for this change is companies are finding that a more open and interactive environment can lead to better communication between employees and to better problem solving and innovation within the company. Large companies such as Google, Intel, and Cisco have all completely re-designed their offices based on this concept.

Google offices

The core of any open-concept office is the ability for employees to move around in an environment that suits their needs during various tasks. To be able to gather team members informally, large or small, is key to the teaming and collaborative workspace concept.

Impact Office has numerous open concept products such as teaming workstation like Evolve, Bridges II, and Voi.   We also have comfortable and open seating with Flock, Sirena, and CitiHuddle and Tucana tables can be moved and re-formatted depending on the amount of people and the type of collaboration needed. Standing desks are great for impromptu meetings and discussions between co-workers as well. If you feel that your company needs a change and are looking to create a more interactive work space come visit us, we have all the latest open concept products and our professional sales staff can help you plan this office transformation from start to finish.
