The Importance of Space Planning in Your Office
Posted on by.
The layout of an office is more important than you think. It is the first impression that you give clients, partners, and even prospective employees. Not to mention it is the space your employees will be occupying on a day-to-day basis. If the layout of your office space is inviting, professional, and well-thought out, it stands to reason your business and those who make up your business will follow suit.
It goes without saying that you want to make a good impression on prospective business partners or prospective clients when they visit your office space. What they think of the office space you present to the world will likely be what they think of your business in its entirety. But beyond that, even some people who apply for jobs may be discouraged by the appearance of an office. They may turn away at the prospect of spending the working week in a poorly designed and unpleasant place. Having an office that looks and feels good is important to getting people to enjoy being there, let alone getting them to stay there.
Studies have shown that both productivity and happiness of office workers can be directly related to the office space in which they work. If their office space feels closed, lifeless, cold, and sad, the people in it will also feel closed off, drained, and demoralized. If employees are not happy where they work, it is unlikely they will stay in that space (or with that business) for longer than they have to, which would make hiring and promotion from within a needlessly difficult battle.
In addition to attracting clients to your business, you have to be able to keep partners and employees in your business. You can do this constantly, with little to no effort, by making sure your office has the best planned layout in the space provided.
