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!

PROBLEM #1:

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

SOLUTION #1:

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.

PROBLEM #2:

Tired eyes caused by bad lighting.

SOLUTION #2:

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!)

PROBLEM #3:

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.

SOLUTION #3:

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.

PROBLEM #4:

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

SOLUTION #4:

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.

PROBLEM #5:

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

SOLUTION #5:

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

Improve Employee's Productivity With a Few Simple Ideas & Products

In today’s work place there can be so many distractions, it can be hard for employees to focus and be as productive as possible. That’s why it is important for employers to create a space that allows employees to focus on their work and not on other issues.

Getting the right products that will aid their functions is key, here are a few tips that can improve your employees functionality and productivity at work.

Proper Filing:is key to many workers. Being able to find the documents they need in a timely and organized manner can make a huge difference. Wasting time looking for files can be frustrating and discouraging, get the right amount of filing storage needed and create a system that makes finding documents straight forward.

Sit Stand Desks: many employees spend a lot of their time shifting to comfortable positions while sitting down, or walking around and stretching to try and rid their bodies of pain and discomfort from sitting in their office chairs all day. Studies show that when employees stand, they have less pain and discomfort and can focus for longer periods of time therefore having better output in their work.

Proper Ergonomics: if a sit stand is out of the question, having the proper ergonomic accessories for your employees is extremely important. Monitor arms, proper seating, and keyboard trays should be used to prevent the harmful impact on their bodies as  much as possible. Working while you’re in pain or uncomfortable is never fun.

Environment: creating an overall positive and comfortable environment is important for employees. People do their best work in an environment that is suitable to their needs and appealing in aesthetic. Small changes can make a big difference, give employees a space that allows them to relax, sparks their creativity, or allows them to focus without interruptions.

Tips For Creating Better Office Organization & Storage

Get an office that works with you, not against you!

Is your office not supporting all your current filing and storage needs? Does it feel like you have papers and documents everywhere with little space to work? There are many small changes that you can make to your office to improve the functionality of it to make your working day easier.

Filing: it is extremely important to have the right filing needs for employees based on their job role. Different departments and positions can have extremely different filing methods and amounts. Lateral Filing from 2 drawers to 5 drawers can keep papers organization making them easier to find and improving efficiency.

Desk Savers: are anything that can help save usable space on your desk. Monitor Arms are a great way to free up space by moving your computer monitor above the desk freeing up all that room below, plus it is more ergonomically friendly. Keyboard trays do the exact same thing by moving the keyboard off the desk creating more usable space.

CPU Holders: will hold your computer dock in a movable container so your can move it around to fit your seating and storage needs of your offices.

If your finding that your current workspace is completely inefficient and not working it may be time to look at a new workstation with built in hutches, filing, and storage solutions. Evolve, Bridges II, and Voi are all new modern looking workstations that have built in filing and storage needs without taking up a huge amount of space, this could be a great option for old cubicles and offices that are not working for current employees.

Any change big or small to change how employees work in a positive way is a great investment and can increase moral and employee efficiency. If you need better office organization come down to our Vancouver showroom where our sales staff can help solve all your storage and filing needs.
