Creating an Office Environment for Everyone

Creating an Office Environment for Everyone

The main function of any office is to provide a space which can effectively promote activity and consistent work flow. What this means today far differs from 50 years ago (or even 5 years ago!); the needs of individuals continue to evolve so it’s important when creating a space to have that in mind.

Like any environment an office is made up of different staff members with varying roles and responsibilities. Based on position (and even the personality of the worker themselves) how they are able to complete their own projects and interact with fellow staff is dependent on how the office is set up: consider an office that works for both introverts and extroverts.

« Every employer wants to make sure every employee can work in the way that allows him or her to be most productive. Ensuring your office environment can accommodate everyone will help both types of talent thrive.

One strategy to give extroverts the collaborative space they need while offering distraction-free environments for introverts is to include several quiet rooms or private work spaces along with open seating. Introverts can book alone time as needed to complete tasks in solitude, while extroverts can be among colleagues for collaboration. » (Author: Elizabeth Dukes, Co-founder and EVP of iOFFICE).

The more your office environment is able to cater to a wide range of differing personalities and work types, the more productive the overall work space (and company) will become.
