Benefits of a better working environment

By Garness Jones | Posted: 7 May 2018

As your business grows, you may find your commercial property no longer suits your needs. Perhaps there isn’t enough room for everyone who needs to be sat together, or you don’t have the meeting space you once had when you were a smaller team. Whatever your issue, as your company evolves it’s definitely worth revaluating your workspace to ensure the environment it provides is a positive one.

Being happy at work is good for everyone’s general health and wellbeing. No matter what industry you’re in, having positive, fulfilling surroundings help facilitate productivity and make the experience more enjoyable in the long run.

Take a look below at just a few of the benefits of creating a better working environment:

  • Employee Retention:

A positive working environment creates engaged employees and stops them looking for employment elsewhere. Why does that matter? It reduces the time and effort involved in hiring and training new employees.

  • Increased Productivity:

A better working environment leaves your employees feeling valued. If your workspace provides a ‘nice place to be’. your employees will look forward to spending time there. Positive team morale creates happy employees that perform better.

  • A healthy workforce:

A positive working environment makes working more enjoyable, reducing levels of stress, depression and anxiety. This also prevents absence and provides less of a risk of long term illness. Not only that, it reduces the pressure on employees covering those who are absent. If you look after your employees, your business will have a more positive public image.

  • Builds trust and improves Communication:

A positive working environment encourages social interactions. Knowing your employer inspires such connections allows people to open up and encourages communication. Furthermore this can lead to a more relaxed atmosphere providing enhanced creativity and innovative ideas. If your employees are better at communicating with one another, they’ll be better communicators with your customers.
