Simple Tips to Increase Productivity

Posted Wednesday, November 25th, 2015 by .

Whether you’re the head honcho or a part-time employee, your goal when you come to the office is the same as everyone else’s: to get the job done. For most employees, the goal is not simply to get the job done, but to get it done quickly and efficiently. What follows are tips on how to move things along. This blog is all about office productivity.

Plan Your Day

You know yourself and when you’re most likely to be focused. Take advantage of the times when you really need to concentrate, and keep tabs on when you start to lose interest. Some folks are morning people, and if this is you it’s best to get right to it when you clock in. If you peak in the afternoon, get smaller tasks done throughout the morning so you can reserve the big tasks for later on. The key is to know your own rhythm. What you want to avoid is getting so busy multitasking that you can’t get anything done at all!

Work + Play = One Happy Office

Posted Thursday, October 29th, 2015 by .

How much time do you spend at work? Chances are, you spend more waking hours in your office than in any other room save the bedroom—so it’s important to make your office a space where you want to hang out. Regardless of what you’ve been told, it is possible to mix work and pleasure. We’ll show you some ways to make your office more enjoyable.

What Attracts You?

Take a moment to consider those offices that you find attractive. Are they colorful? Do they inspire creativity? Office design is about more than just arranging furniture and computers to ensure an efficient work space. It’s about combining all the elements of your work space into an arrangement that draws you in. If you’re a nature person, bring in some plants. If you like organization, look up what other people are doing. More filing cabinets may not be the solution. You could even bring in a swing!

Highly Useful Ways to Brighten Office Restrooms

Posted Thursday, August 13th, 2015 by .

Like it or not, all employees will spend a bit of time doing things we’d rather not talk about. One thing that cannot be avoided is restroom breaks. This is one area where it’s best to just go with the flow, pun intended. Make it a welcoming place to get the job done. It’s time for a bit of work in—ahem—the bathroom.

Stock Up

One way to keep employees happy is to provide all the essential hygiene items. Of course you need toilet paper and hand-washing soap. But why not go the extra mile and provide staff with additional items like cotton swabs, lotion, and essential oils? You can display items in pretty glass bottles with printable labels so employees have a visual reminder of all the extras available to them.

Amazingly Simple Tips for a Greener Office

Posted Thursday, August 6th, 2015 by .

It’s good to be green! At least, it’s good to be a business that acts responsibly when it comes to the environment. This means taking steps at the office to reduce waste and increase efficiency. This blog will help you to make your office a greener space that you can feel proud of.

Cut Paper

Businesses rely on communication to help get the job done. This adds up to lots of memos, invoices, and other methods of passing around information using paper products. If you’re not recycling already, it’s time to get started!

Many cities offer shredding services for confidential documents that you no longer need. You can set up your own recycling box for everything else. Encourage employees to use both sides of paper whenever possible. You can also ask them to toss waste into the office recycling bin when they are done, not a trash can! Make your own recycling bin out of crates and start cutting back on paper.

Loud noises

Bringing the Outdoors In

Posted Thursday, May 14th, 2015 by .

Spring has finally sprung! If you’re like many employees, you‘re probably spending a fair amount of time gazing through the window, wishing you were outside. Instead of wasting all that time staring out doors, you can make yourself, your boss, or even your co-workers a lot happier if you can find ways to bring the outdoors in.

This blog is about designing an outdoor-friendly office space.

Why Nature Matters

First of all, it’s important to know a bit about the benefits of the great outdoors, in case you have any “obstacles” in your way. Plants are the foundation of most of the food webs on Earth. This means that you can start with essentially any animal and work through a food chain, all the way down to plants. For example, a lion eats a zebra which eats grass. In short, without plants, none of us would be here!

For the office, a simple argument boils down to the quality of the indoor air. Houseplants are pretty to look at, but they have also been shown to actually help purify the air we breathe! Considering that indoor air can be up to five times worse than the air outdoors, this makes indoor plants a necessity at the workplace. These top 10 plants are effective at removing formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide.
