The top two reasons to invest in furniture for your employees are:
1.) Attract and retain top talent
2.) Attract and retain customers
Your office furniture is more than just a place for people to sit and work. It says a lot about your organization. If your office space is organized, it will reflect an overall culture of order. This will communicate to your clients that you approach your work in a sensible, systematic way. Customers want to know that they will be taken care of, that a business has planned for and thought through all the little details. This message is delivered through the appearance of your interior. What does your office environment say about your office culture?
Providing sit-to-stand solutions for employees allows them to move more freely throughout the day while still getting the job done. It says you care about the health of your employees. Studies have shown that sitting too long can increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Attract and retain top talent by providing ergonomic solutions.
Encourage collaboration with open work environments and casual meeting spaces. Collaboration has mutual benefits for both the company and the employees working there. It has been proven that workers feel more a part of a team, more invested in the business in a collaborative environment. Promote teamwork by providing desks without walls and accessible meeting spaces.
Many office environments require their employees to have more privacy. Perhaps you need taller walls to lessen monitor visibility, or reduce noise and control sound. Break up the monotony of tall gray fabric walls with glass, wood, or color. Protect your client’s privacy by investing in quality acoustical furniture, but don’t sacrifice the comfort of your staff and add the little details that make life so much more interesting.
Communicate your brand message through the interior design of your office place. Your furniture can support that message whether it is a message of tradition, adventure, forward-thinking, school spirit, professionalism, freedom or anything else. Speak to your customer; convey your ideas with a thoughtfully designed interior.
