When the summer months arrive and the weather finally includes a bit of sun every now and then, you might find that your office becomes very distracted or that productivity levels hit an all-time low. This could be because of several reasons including daydreaming about summer, clients already on holiday and your employees wanting to be outside instead of at their desk.

As an employer, it is up to you to make sure that your employees get back on track and have a productive month no matter what time of year it is.

So how do you improve office productivity ready for the summer?

Create A Productive Office Environment

Here at Egan Reid we believe that having the right office environment is the key to any successful and productive office. Without comfortable desks, space to work and areas for creative thinking, you may find that your office is hard to work in.

Try updating the office furniture with standing desks, small seating areas and desks that can help your employees work together as a team. On top of this you can also consider introducing features such as desk fans, and access to water coolers so that your employers can work in a more comfortable environment.

Take Regular Breaks

Although this may not sound productive, taking regular breaks means you can give your thoughts a rest, clear your head and then go back to a subject with a clearer view. These breaks can also be a time to eat a snack, reboot some of your used energy and even chat to a co-worker.

This doesn’t mean take a whole afternoon off but regular breaks away from your desk can help you to work more productively.

Limit The Amount Of Time Spent On Each Task

Your office furniture might be perfectly comfy and you may be remembering to take regular breaks but if after all this time you are spending too long on each task then you may find you still don’t get anywhere.

Take time to plan the work your employees do and if a project is not progressing how you would like it to then you can always switch the team around. This will keep fresh eyes on the project at all time.

Standing desks are fast becoming one of the most popular options for offices as many are now realising how unhealthy it can be to sit down in an office all day. These standing desks can offer better posture positions, the choice to stretch out your legs and a way of avoiding uncomfortable seating.

Not only are these desks a great idea for improving posture but they can also help with furnishing a more creative office space and here is why:

Improve Health And Fitness Of Employees

Staying healthy at work can be hard because a lot of us sit down in a 9-5 job without really leaving the desk. This can cause several different issues. From bad posture to different aches and pains, sitting down all day might not be as comfortable as you may think.

Choosing to install standing desks can give your employees the option to be on their feet and move around whilst they work. This will give them a better chance of having good posture rather than slouching over a laptop all day.

In some rare cases you can even install treadmills under the desks so that your employees can walk whilst they work.

They Can Create A Creative Workspace

When you are struggling to create an environment that is creative, hardworking and easy to work in then you might consider standing desks.

A Standing desk can help to get the creative juices flowing, get a team working together and create a space where a company can really thrive. Instead of slouching in a seat all day, standing desks can help you to stay awake, keep on your feet and get your work done more effectively.

Also Consider Standing/Seating Desks…

If the standing desk seems like quite a daunting idea and they aren’t exactly what you are looking for then you can choose something that is a mix of both. A standing/seating desk provides you with enough space to sit if you are wanting to relax your legs or stand if you need some time stood up. This means you can work in a position which is comfortable for you no matter what and still have a productive day at work.

The New Year is in full swing, spring is on its way and it might just be the perfect time to start thinking about an office fit-out.

When The Whole Office Is On Holiday

Instead, you can rest assured that your project manager from Egan Reid will take away any hassle of talking to contractors, working out which date works best for you and having to organise moving day.

When Moving Location

This is why re-fitting your office and opting for an office fit-out is perfect for someone that is moving location. No matter whether this is an office down size or upgrade, Egan Reid can find you comfortable, practical and useful office furniture to fit in with any space.

If Your Office Is In Need Of A Re-Vamp

Your office is much a part of your organisation as any employee. It is where all the work takes place, the much needed discussions happen and the business really comes together.

So if you don’t have the right furniture, the right chairs, desks and appliances, then your office can struggle to be as successful as it needs to be.

Finding the right furniture might seem like a daunting task but with the help of Egan Reid you will have a great looking office in no time:

Choosing The Right Desk

No matter whether you run a ‘hot desk’ style office or you have a strict seating chart, getting the right desk is essential. This is the place you will be working on throughout the year and it needs to be the right height, width and in some parts comfortable to work on.

You can get a range of different desks such as the End-corner workstation and the basic table desk. However, you can even get desks with built in drawers and storage which will come in handy if you have a larger office with more storage needed.

What To Consider When Choosing Chairs?

When buying the right office chairs, you need to consider their purpose, the size of your office and obviously the number of staff. This means you could end up going for a chair that you never would have gone for beforehand.

Chairs such as the constable armchair and the mesh back meeting chair work well for offices where people are sat at their desk for a long time each day. They offer back support as well as comfort in the seat meaning no one will be crying with aches and pains from their office chairs.

Where To Go To Find All These Items?

Yes, you could go to Ikea, you could spend all day knowing nothing about the furniture you are buying and then come back feeling worse than when you set out.

Or, you could let Egan Reid help you find the perfect office furniture, a great price and speak to welcoming staff.

You might not have considered that an office fit-out is exactly what you and your office need to make 2017, and beyond, a great year. After the turbulent year that was 2016, it is time for a new start and an office fit-out.

Why Might You Need An Office Fit-Out?

Office-fit outs are not just for new offices or new businesses. For example, you might be expanding your business, bringing in new staff and realising that the layout you have now just will not work for you. Instead of struggling with a larger workforce and little or no space, you can organise an office-fit out done by Egan Reid.

Another reason you might need and office fit out is if you ARE starting a new business or moving to a new office. When you are making a new start and trying to get everything organised the last thing you need is to have to go trawling round looking for furniture. You want to be able to get right on with your work, and this is something Egan Reid can help you with.

What Factors Do You Need To Consider?

When deciding on fitting out your office the two most important factors to consider are money and space. You can most definitely fit out your office on a tight budget. The most important thing to remember is that every space is different so you need to make sure that you fit out your office according to that so you can make the most of your space!

Where Do You Begin?

Before you are set for your office refurbishment, you need to make sure that you have:

  • Organise the office so you decide which furniture is to stay and which is to be donated to charity.
  • Removed all furniture so that the professionals can go in and start working on your office.
  • Brainstorm on your own or with your team so you can come up with some ideas of how you would like the office to look.
  • Workout how many staff you have/will have when the office refurbishment is done so you can accommodate them all.

What To Do Next?

Let us here at Egan Reid fit your office with great quality office furniture, seating, desks and storage that can take an office from dull to dreamy in no time.
