Does your Arizona commercial office space resemble a sterile doctor’s office? Although countless hours are spent in-office, many only contain a drooping plant in one corner, and a “Teamwork” poster haphazardly taped above the copy machine. One may assume this cold and uninviting environment is more conducive for productivity. After all, if employees have nothing to distract them they’ll focus more on their work, right? Au contraire! Forbes revealed that personalizing your office space can have many positive effects, including higher levels of job satisfaction, more productivity, and ultimately, lower turnover. So perk up that plant, get over your fear of color and have some fun! Having trouble finding creative ways to spruce up your office space? Here are some quick ways to personalize your office space in AZ and make your work environment a happier place to be.
When that poster isn’t cutting it, invest in some colorful artwork for around the office. Bright pops of colors will liven up your space and give it an energized feel. Ditch the scotch tape for a simple frame; the result is a much more aesthetically pleasing and polished vibe. Take it a step further by encouraging employees to add a few framed pictures of loved ones on their desk space. This personalized touch is an easy way to make the office appear inviting, while also making your employees happy! Lacking motivation? Frame an inspirational quote with a modern looking background to keep your office inspired throughout the work day.
Supplies & Accessories
Office supplies can serve more purpose than just functionality. Liven it up with funky staplers, colored paper clips and patterned organizers. Acrylic accessories are a great way to add a unique and modern look to your office. Allow employees to bring their own personalized supplies, like a colorful mouse pad or their own penholders. These little touches can lighten their mood and enhance creativity.
Potted plants and flowers are an easy way to make your office feel more inviting and bring life to an otherwise stark environment. In addition to adding lush color to the office, plants have been known to reduce stress and increase productivity. Don’t know where to start? English Ivy, African Violets and Pothos are common varieties you will find scattered around offices. Looking for a low-maintenance option? Arizona commercial office spaces are the perfect setting for succulents or cacti as they require little water or care to survive. They’re the perfect solution if you want to liven up the office, but lack a green thumb.
