We want our team to be the most productive it can be, but how much time is spent ensuring the working environment is inspiring and welcoming, with employees look forward to coming to work?
By investing in the working environment, you are demonstrating as an employer that you care about your team, want them to be comfortable, have the right equipment and be motivated.
There is no magic solution to providing the right surroundings, it will depend on the industry you are in, but clean, well maintained and fit for purpose is essential. Creative entities such as Google have injected colour and fun into their environment, but this would not work in a City powerhouse, so choosing what is right for your business its image and your workforce is essential.
So, when you are considering how to attract the best employees or make sure you are getting the most from them, look at where they are working – does it inspire?
