5 Things Employees Want in Their Office

 

Do you know what your employees want in their office? Do you know what kind of spaces employees feel most comfortable in? Do you know what sort of physical environment and design they like working in the most? 

These are some of the things you need to keep in mind as en employee when leasing an office space to ensure your employees are happy, productive, and never want to leave. 

Here are the 5 things employees want in their office:

1. Functional Desk

Sitting too much is bad for your health. However, you can negate the harmful effects of sitting too much with standing desks. A standing desk, also called a sit-stand desk are becoming popular among employees. A standing desk allows you to stand up comfortably while working, which increase productivity and have impressive benefits for health. Some of the other benefits standing desks or sit-down desks include reduce back pain, improve mood and energy levels, and lower your risk of weight gain and obesity.

2. Comfortable Chair

Did you know the average person sit for approximately 13 hours a day? This is why having comfortable chairs in the office should be a top priority. Comfortable chairs will help to improve posture and reduce health risks. Investing in comfortable chairs can increase the comfort and productivity of employees. In addition, investing in comfortable is an investment in the health of your employees.

3. General Cleanliness 

Employees want general cleanliness in their office. You have to consider how often desks, chairs, and other items in the office are wiped down and cleaned. Bacteria can be found anywhere so It’s important to prevent germs from spreading throughout the office.

4. Natural Light

Natural light is important to our health and well-being. Did you know employees who work near sunlit windows have a 15% higher production rate? If you’re looking to increase productivity and invest in the health of your employees, you should make sure there is an adequate amount of natural light in the office. 

5. Refreshment Facilities 

A coffee bar is key addition to any office space. Employees want tea, coffee, and other refreshment in their office. So looking for an office space with a coffee bar or adding a coffee bar in the office will encourage employees to fuel up throughout their day.
