4 Simple Ways To Manage Space In Your Workplace
A well-designed workspace with sufficient room to move about allows employees to focus better and collaborate effectively with one another. Otherwise speaking, it inspires them to put in their best effort.
On the other hand, a mismanaged space does the opposite. It can have a negative impact on the growth and financial returns of a business. Moreover, it will also result in a wasteful investment due to the tendency to spend more money than needed without reflecting on the productivity of a business organisation.
For you to transform your workspace into a more productive and highly functional unit that taps the potential of your employees – you have to make the best use of every square inch of your workplace. Here are some easy ways by which you can effectively manage the space of your growing business, startup or small-sized workspace.
Smart planning of layout
Before regular business operations can start, you’ll need to carefully evaluate the total space available and figure out the best layout to maximise your space. Be sure to leave out sufficient room for desks and place them as close as possible to windows so that employees get ample natural light during working hours. You should also leave sufficient distance in between office furniture, equipment, and so forth – so as to make your workspace look spacious and not over-cluttered. These things go a long way in deciding employee productivity and thus, the performance of a workplace.
However, if you have yet to find a suitable workspace to manage your layout – Work+Store offers both self-storages and workspaces for your new workplace. We provide the cheapest self-storages from 6 sqft to 730 sqft, whereas our workspaces start from 88 sqft onwards. Moreover, our workspaces can be found across various locations in Singapore – so you can find the right one that best fits your convenience. They include Tampines, Bukit Merah, Upper Thomson, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Bartley, Pasir Panjang, Aljunied, Ang Mo Kio and Kallang. For starters, you can try out our Aljunied location if you’re around the area – it’s having a rent-free promotion so you can cut costs and spend on other office necessities. Additionally, all our units are accessible by simply using our smart lock system with a pin number. Contact us for more information. Terms and conditions apply.
Office furniture is now available in a range of multi-purpose designs that offer space solutions without compromising on their functionality. Thus, a range of stackable tables, folding chairs, sofas with storage, and side panels that require minimal space are available in the market. Including these in your workspace will certainly allow you to make the most of all available space. Another great idea is to use foldable partitioning that can be used to create a separate room whenever needed, which can then be neatly stored when not in use.
Using multi-utility furniture doesn’t only manage your space smartly, but you’re essentially saving costs as well. These types of furniture are an all-in-one solution with multiple uses – so you don’t have to purchase many different furniture. Additionally, you can save even more with our workspaces at Work+Store; they come equipped with basic facilities such as air conditioning, lighting, and a powerpoint. We also offer 24-hour accessibility and camera surveillance so you can look after your workspace.
Technology for office work
Instead of keeping every document in paper form, you should start opting for software that allows for easy sharing and storage. For example, cloud-based technology allows safe storage of important documents like legal contracts, authorisation papers, project details, and client particulars – thereby minimising the need for their storage in the workspace itself. By investing in these technologies, any business can use their available workspace effectively.
However, if you still have excess or archived documents to store – you can go for a self storage so they can be kept securely in the extra storage provided. We offer the cheapest self storages that even come with flexible lease terms so you can upgrade or downsize whenever you wish to. Work+Store provides short term lease and contract transfer to other kinds of products or services within our establishment or our parent company, LHN Group, which comprises of vending machine spots, serviced office and apartments, pop-up store location rental, and event venues. As for our workspaces, they also operate as ancillary offices to help support your business when it comes to managing a core industrial activity such as warehousing while handling administrative functions at the same time. By sharing work and storage space together, you are boosting efficiency in goods procurement and customer service.
Excellent space management contributes to a higher employee productivity level, in turn, improving business operations and bringing up sales. Using these useful tips for a start will help to maximise your space in the best possible way and help your organisation in the long run.
