Why Workplace Design Will Always Matter Even After COVID-19
With the recent COVID-19 crisis, the majority of workplaces have had to close down and move forward with the WFH (Work-from-Home) initiative. For some, this measure has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to have a balance between ample rest and the completion of tasks.
However, not everyone is reaping the benefits from the pandemic, and some are even feeling less productive, overwhelmed, and burned out. This group of people are the ones who are looking forward to returning to the conducive, vibrant workplace where productivity is at its peak and interaction with other fellow workers bringing up one’s mood. As such, it comes to the point that decorating a business space has its significance in your employees’ mood, well-being, and productivity.
Meanwhile, if you’re planning to downsize after the crisis to cut costs – you can always consider a cheap small office unit to rent. Space doesn’t always have to be your biggest concern; at times, layout and design will do plenty. Read on to find out how you can spruce up your workplace.
Boosted motivation in employees
The primary reason for an excellent workplace layout is vital in increasing staff satisfaction while they are at work; this will have a direct, positive impact on your company. Greater motivation leads to increased profits and efficiency. Create an inviting and inspiring space – an ergonomic workspace will even make them feel important and appreciated at work.
Utilises floor space perfectly
If cost is something you prioritise when looking for workspace rental, then you should get cheap office space for lease to get more bang for your bucks. You should also go for a smaller-sized workspace, so that you can have extra funds for other parts of your business. One important thing you can start with is your workplace design; a well-designed workspace can save you a lot of space yet keep your workplace stylish.
At Work+Store, we have a number of the cheapest self-storages and workspaces in Singapore. Our storage units range begins from 6 sqft and varies up til 730 sqft, and our workspaces start from 88 sqft, and the range continues.

Makes it easy to carry out supervision
It’s always important to give your employees personal space, but at the same time – you need to keep a close eye on their performance while maintaining a distance. A well-designed office space will allow an employer to assess the progress of work, even from a distance. Combine several workstations together instead of spreading them out to encourage collaborative discussions, and keep track of their work.
Supervision doesn’t just apply to your employees – but to your workspace as well. We are able to offer 24/7 accessibility and camera surveillance for both our workspaces and self-storages so you can ensure the safety of your workplace and employees. On the other hand, if you would like to downsize or upgrade your space to save costs or hire more staff – we have flexible lease terms that will help you meet these requirements. Besides a short period of lease, we also offer contract transfer to a number of other services within Work+Store or even our parent company, LHN Group, covering an extensive range that comprises commercial and industrial spaces, vending machine locations, and many others.
With the efforts put into increasing employees’ motivation at work through design, it will, in turn, lead to improved productiveness. People are more likely to work more effectively when happy and satisfied than the other way around. For instance, a separate space – be it a break room or game room can give your staff an opportunity to let loose and take a break whenever necessary. The rest taken will help them be at the top of their game when returning to work.
Other than having a regular workspace for your day-to-day tasks, ensuring if it’s able to be used to support other relevant tasks which your business handles is just as crucial. Our spaces can function as ancillary offices that can assist you in other tasks, from admin activities up to marketing operations. At Work+Store, we can provide businesses with the cheapest self storages and workspaces, whereby you can find the perfect space that meets your budget. Meanwhile, our workspaces are also well-furnished with standard facilities such as air conditioning, lighting, and a powerpoint. With the combination of workspaces and self storages together, it helps in boosting efficiency during the goods acquisition process and smoothens logistics activities for better customer service.
The importance of workplace design can never be emphasised enough. Make sure your space is well-designed, whether it be including a theme or throwing in ergonomic furniture to make it a comfortable environment for employees.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is an inevitable, unfortunate event that the entire globe has to deal with right now. Businesses, in particular, will need to cut costs and make a couple of changes in order to get through this difficult period of time. However, this tough phase will eventually come to an end, and returns to a point where we’re back to our normal lives. With that being said, as a business, we have to quickly adapt ourselves and think about our employees’ well-being, and one way will definitely be through designing. In the meantime, we will still be giving our existing tenants access to our spaces. On your part as a tenant, you should conform to the government Circuit Breaker guidelines strictly – so you can ensure the safety of your own and the rest of the citizens within the nation. When we unite together to do our part, we can all contribute to keeping the virus control, and eventually, put a stop to it altogether.
