A short guide on improving workplace morale for your flexible workspace.
A few handy tips on how to improve the atmosphere and morale in your workspace.
Workspace morale is an important factor of everyday working life.
If you occupy a flexible workspace but morale is low, chances are the work will suffer. Employees who feel comfortable in the workplace are far more likely to produce a high standard of work.
So how do we improve workspace morale? Here are a few things to get you started:
Employee Days out or Retreats
Now we know you pay to rent a flexible workspace but employee days out or retreats are a great way for co-workers to become more sociable. Team building days out can really improve workspace morale as well as helping to break the ice with new employees.
Acknowledge Individual Achievements
Make sure to acknowledge individual achievements. It’s important to recognise when employees have done a good job – introducing an employee of the month programme for example. This also encourages people to take more pride in the work they do.
Introduce Music to the Office
When you rent a flexible workspace there is the tendency to work quietly so not to disturb those around you. But, music in the office can actually help to set a comfortable atmosphere and can create a sociable environment for employees. To a point. We’re not suggesting that having Tina Turner at full lung capacity is going to help you concentrate. Keep tracks easy-going and ensure people can still make calls and hold conversations.
Keeping the Office Clean
Of course, when renting flexible workspace you want to keep it clean but this is another way to improve morale. A cluttered workspace creates a limiting and uninspiring environment. You may also want to consider some art or posters for the walls to motivate and add another dimension to your office design.
Follow these simple tips in your flexible workspace and watch it transform to a happier more productive place in no time.
