by Enviro Vatika Enviro facility Management

Having a work-life balance is vital for your employees’ physical, emotional, and mental wellness. With the increased work demands and the burning desire to succeed, many people nowadays overwork.

One study showed a whopping 52% of employees had unused leave days in the year 2017 alone. Meaning employers need to change a lot of things, including an overhaul of their office interior design. Interior designs are a crucial element to any workspace. They not only define your business but also tell your story as to what the brand stands for.

What can employers do to enhance work-life balance?

Making the Working Place Look Homely

Workplace and office interior designs can be a substantially demotivating factor for your employees. The traditional workplace set-ups that look official can create relentless pressure on your staff. You can switch your office interior design from the old set-up to more modern and inspiring designs.

In revamping the office interior design, you can change the seats from traditional office chairs and incorporate bar tables, lounges, and hammock chairs. Change in seating can make employees feel relaxed and fresh all the time.

In part of your office space design, think of developing secluded lounge-like reading rooms or coffee rooms. Your staff will find a place to take a break and unwind when working gets boring.

Think of tweaking the office lighting and colors in your new office interior design. Instead of the traditional tube lighting include sconces and pendants. Or if you want to be more adventurous and use chandeliers instead.

Incorporate Nature into the Workplace 

It is common for people to resonate with natural things. Think of the aesthetic and the therapeutic value of nature and include plans and flowers in your office interior design.

Plants and flowers can create a vibrant and refreshing office environment bound to elevate staff moods.

Go for More Team Building Events

If staff can’t go for vacations, think of upping the class and quality of your team building events. Make them more adventurous and exciting.

Team building events if done well, can reinvigorate your staffs’ spirits and reduce employee turnover.

Listen to Your Employees

Office interior design or office space design revamps are partial ways of enhancing staffs work-life balance. Your team could have more challenges than you know. Instead of making all the changes yourself, listen to their opinions. What changes do they desire that can make a turnaround in their work-life balance? Whether it is creating a child-friendly workplace or incorporating recreation in the workplace, their opinion matters.

By listening to your staff, you can resolve many of the problems distressing them at the workplace before they worsen. Lest the work-life balance gets disrupted adding to employee attrition rate which further worsens the condition if corrective measures are not taken.

Organizations must make their employees feel comfortable in the office surroundings. This not only adds to better employee retention chances but also helps in spreading a good word about the organization in the outer world.
