4. Update Your Furniture
Workplace culture affects almost everything your employees do from the moment that they enter office in the morning to when they leave at the end of the day. It affects things such as the way they dress, they way they interact with co-workers, and how and when they eat. As such, it is very important to consider if your office furniture promotes a positive and productive workplace culture.
However, it's not just workplace culture that furniture has an impact on. It also has a large effect on motivation and the sense of feeling valued. When discussing reasons for employee demotivation, Michael Page listed “feeling under-valued" as number three! However, the solution doesn't have to be too complex, it can be as simple as giving your employees the option between a sitting or a standing desk, or giving them a choice of multiple office chairs so that they can choose the one that they find the most comfortable.
Finally, with regards to furniture itself – it's worthwhile considering employee wellbeing and the health of your staff. Inflexible furniture can cause long-term back, neck, and shoulder injuries; employees could need time off to recover, and if this issue isn't resolved, your valuable employees could start seeking employment elsewhere.
