Back To Work: 3 Workplace Design Tips To Boost Staff Morale
When the storm – COVID-19 – finally blows over, we may have to bid goodbye to the comfort of our homes (unless your company plans on continuing with remote working). Otherwise, most of us will be returning to our usual lives in the workplace.
That said, it’ll be a more important time than ever to keep your employees in a bright and positive mood to be happy and prepared to take on the pile of workload when work begins. You could be an effective leader by listening keenly to the needs of your staff and providing the best comfort to them while they are in the office. It’s even as simple as sprucing up your business space by splashing new colours onto your walls or bringing new, ergonomic furniture for your employees’ well-being.
Keep reading on to find out what are some great design ideas that will help to improve the morale of your staff.
Focus on lighting
When we’re talking about lighting in a workspace – we’re essentially referring to two aspects – natural and artificial lighting. Natural lighting is optimal in improving employee health and productivity – from reducing eye strains, boosting mood levels to fewer headaches. However, when dusk approaches – natural lighting may not be present, which is why you need to incorporate artificial lighting as well.
When it comes to artificial lighting, Work+Store can assist you with our cost-inclusive facilities which include a powerpoint, air conditioning, and of course, ample lighting in your space. Meanwhile, if you’re interested in acquiring a cheap office space for startups – we have a range of the cheapest self storages and workspaces in which our storage units are sized from 6 sqft onwards, with the storage space being 730 sqft, whereas our workspaces vary from 88 sqft onwards. As for the workspaces, they are located in 10 places within Singapore, consisting of Aljunied, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Bartley, Ang Mo Kio, Pasir Panjang, Upper Thomson, Tampines, and Bukit Merah. If you’re looking to save even more, especially if you’ve just begun your business – you can look forward to our offer at our Aljunied building, where you get to enjoy 2 months rent-free.

Keep your space comfortable
Ergonomic assets are particularly great in reducing strain and fatigue, thus, leading to an enhanced level of productivity. You can utilise collaborative furniture such as sofas inside the presentation room – bean bags and a whiteboard will do plenty too. Bring in furniture that will add on to the appearance of your workspace yet create a more conducive environment.
At the same time, ensuring your employees’ well-being and safeguarding your space plays a part in keeping your workplace comfortable. When one is at ease, they will then be able to truly focus on their work. At Work+Store, all our spaces – whether you’re looking at a self storage or workspace – comes with camera surveillance and accessibility round-the-clock, so both your employees and workspace are well-looked after. Whenever it’s time for downsizing or upgrading, you can also look towards our flexible lease terms. We don’t only offer a short period of lease, but we also offer contract transfers to a variety of numerous products and services within our premises or even our parent company, LHN Group, covering serviced offices and apartments, pop-up store venue rental, and plenty of other options.
Make break rooms fun
Break rooms should be more advanced and comfortable than the conventional semi-functioning coffee machine and sore-inflicting chairs. Come up with a fun-filled break room that your staff will enjoy to visit when they are off work. Chances are that when you have a fun-filled break room, they will sit in the break room till the time elapses and get back to duty right away.
While a separate break room can go a long way in improving one’s mood and boost efficiency, ensuring your space is multi-functional matters too. Our spaces can also act as an ancillary office in the event that you have to handle other tasks which are related to marketing or manufacturing. With Work+Store, you can find some of the cheapest self-storages and workspaces for your pick. The unique combination of a workspace and self-storage has allowed for improved goods acquirement efficiency, smoothened logistics procedures, which brings forward a heightened level of customer service.
If you’re worried about keeping your workplace design intriguing or conducive – here are a couple of tips you can try out first. Afterwards, you can slowly brainstorm for other innovative ideas.
With the COVID-19 situation going on right now, many businesses all over the world and in Singapore itself has had to temporarily halt all operations. While there are still some who are essential workers and have to head out – the majority are transforming their homes to their workplace instead. However, in time to come, we will return to our workplaces once the pandemic is finally over. In that case, a sense of familiarity may be lost having stayed home for too long, which is why incorporating the right design ideas matters. In the meanwhile, we will still grant access to our spaces – be it a workspace or self-storage. Existing tenants can still use the spaces as long as one acts in accordance with the government Circuit Breaker guidelines to keep a safe distance from others and stay healthy at all times. When we unite as one, it is possible to keep the virus under control!
