When it comes to an office refurb, you may be wondering what type of furniture and set-up to opt for. Should you go open-plan? Should you build individual offices? Do you require collaborative furniture?
In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at how collaborative furniture can benefit your office and its workers and how the DMS Group can take care of it all for you under one simple contract.
The Advantages of Collaborative Furniture
By creating a contemporary, collaborative work environment, you can build a sense of connectivity and authenticity among your workers. Removing employees from individual offices encourages greater interaction and improves engagement, making your team work better together as a unit.
Facilitating Agility and Flexibility
Agility and flexibility are no longer just words used to describe working in a pandemic. Agile and flexible working is becoming increasingly important for businesses to adapt and can be crucial to the happiness of your employees.
This, in turn, contributes to the success of your organisation by helping you to retain employees
Collaborative furniture doesn’t just facilitate collaboration between workers in the office, it also allows those employees who are working from home to be equally as involved in projects, featuring high quality video conferencing solutions to allow all team members to be equally engaged.
Stronger Employee Rapport
Employees that spend more time working collaboratively as a team have reported greater happiness at work.
By building great rapport between work colleagues through furniture that facilitates collaborative working, you can foster a less vertical work atmosphere, creating a greater sense of equality among employees.
This allows workers to feel more comfortable reaching out and working with others in the office on projects, improving workflows and overall office productivity.
Collaborative furniture enables you to create the perfect workspace as and when it is needed- from spur of the moment brainstorming sessions to scheduled meetings and project work, collaborative furniture gives you the space you need to get the job done as a team.
Collaborative spaces allow you to design and organise your office furniture to meet the requirements of your business. An agile, multi-purpose space caters to the needs of all different members of staff and provides you with the opportunity to integrate your business identity and brand colours into your office furniture.
Workplaces that are more engaged are higher performing, something which has shown to maintain earnings-per-share growth more than four times their industry competitors.
In fact, office layouts which facilitate collaboration result in 21% higher annual profitability than those that don’t, making collaborative furniture an incredibly worthwhile investment for your business.
Allows for More Focused Working
Although having an open-plan office can be great for collaborative working, it can also be incredibly noisy and distracting for those looking to get their heads down.
In fact, research from Humboldt University in Berlin found that it can take as long as 23 minutes for workers to restore their focus after an interruption.
By limiting these interruptions by providing a range of collaborative and solo working furniture, you can significantly improve productivity within your workforce.
