3. Consider How Spaces Are Used
As written in Forbes, it's important think about “what's unique about your company". After all, every company has their own story and their own unique way of doing things. So, think about how you can best utilise the space of your office. This is even more important for start-up businesses. Whilst just starting out, you'll likely have a small office environment and be working on a small budget, so it's essential that you make the most out of everything at your disposal. Getting value for money is paramount.
Don't feel obligated to include ping pong tables and other 'fun items' that you see in lots of start-up office blogs. After all, if your employees aren't using them and it's not having a positive impact on the productivity and wellbeing of your workforce, it's not a worthwhile investment. Instead, consider how your business works, think about the things that you need and what will improve the productivity and wellbeing of your employees. For example, a comfortable breakout area ensuring that your staff make a productive and relaxing break so they return to work refreshed and ready to face their challenges.
