A company’s culture should be embedded within all aspects of its office design. A company’s culture not only affects their public representation but also employee mood and productivity. In 2020, office design is all about injecting personality and reinforcing company values and beliefs.
Our office designers have these simple tips for using innovative design to enhance your company’s culture:
More Than Logos
Aligning your office design with your culture means more than logos on walls and company colours. While these aspects are important, takes your office design further by injecting personality into your furniture, finishes, layout and décor.
Tailoring decor to your office culture allows for an expression of core values in a unique and memorable way.
Invest in Nature
Biophilia is a growing trend in Brisbane office design as more workplaces strive to satisfy their employees desire to connect to nature. Eco-friendly lighting, greenery, recycled materials and water features are all elements of biophilic design and have a proven positive effect on company culture, employee wellness and retention.
A Variety of Working Spaces
Flexibility, connectedness and a sense of belonging are top priority for many employees, so it’s no surprise that activity-based working is extremely popular in office design. This strategy sees the design and layout of your office crafted according to the needs and activities of your employees. From quiet nooks to outdoor terraces, individual pods and games rooms, boost your company culture by providing employees with desirable office spaces that allow them to be their most productive selves.
First Impressions Matter
Your reception area is the first place that welcomes visitors and employees, so it’s vital that the design sets expectations and represents the values of a company and aligns with your brand. Adding design elements such as colour, eye-catching artwork and natural materials can capture the essence of a company and leave a lasting impression.
