Every company deals with planning out office space for everything from regular employees to executives and meeting spaces. A well-thought-out office can foster creativity, encourage collaboration, and minimize stress. Everything from lighting to floor layouts can have a measurable impact on your workforce’s productivity and quality of life. Likewise, it’s important for business owners to carefully consider how the form of an office influences its function. That’s why Modular Office Environments compiled a handy infograph outlining some essential elements of office design.
Some elements to highlight that have been researched include having the right chair for ergonomics. Having smaller desks for those that just need a computer and larger desks for those that work with pen and paper. They also offer a quick spacing reference guide for management, employees (such as secretaries, accountants, programmers, customer service reps) as well as other space requirements (such as reception areas, conference rooms, lunch rooms, and mail rooms).
Also planning ahead for future expansion is also important. This way you will not have to spend time and energy moving your business every two to five years. You should calculate the amount of space that you need now and add 10% – 20% to estimate future growth.
