New Year’s brings fresh goals, resolutions, energy, and a willingness to do and be better in all aspects of our lives. Individuals will make goals of improving their health, wellness, productivity and more. While these are prevalent in our personal lives, there are many ways to keep this same momentum in the workplace. An office refresh is a great way to keep the drive of a new year going in a positive direction. While this may seem like a daunting and pricey venture- it does not have to be. Even switching out a few older furnishings, adding artwork or biophilia can help revitalize your space to promote a more energized and productive environment. Workscapes will be there the whole way, making the process as seamless as possible.

The Ergonomic Refresh

There are small ways to improve an office in a cost-effective way. Keep in mind that every mind and body are different and will benefit from different things. The first step should always be a survey or communication with each employee to find out what kind of issues they may have- then go to an expert who can assist in recommending the correct ergonomic product. Upgrading to an ergonomic chair like the Herman Miller Aeron, Embody, or the Knoll Regeneration can help with back, neck, sciatic nerve pain, and much more! Adding sit-to-stand legs to a desktop to allow for more movement and options will benefit the health of you and your employees. Purchasing small ergonomic items like a mouse, laptop stand, or foot pad are small ways that can make a big impact on one’s body.

The Aesthetic Refresh

Another way to refresh your space is to appeal to the senses and change the aesthetic and feel. Updating the flooring, repainting with a brighter color, adding more windows or DIRTT glass walls to open your space. Buildscapes and Workscapes Flooring teams can assist in picking the right colors and designs to refresh your space. An alternative way to aesthetically refresh can be done by adding new artwork or biophilic elements such as plants, living walls, or water features to create a more peaceful environment. Studies have shown that adding these natural elements can help in reducing stress levels and increasing productivity.
