Creating The Best Work Environment

These days the work place is more than just where business is conducted, it is an environment where people should be able to feel and be the best versions of themselves in order perform at an optimal level. It’s also a place that should embrace elements of nature and collaboration in order to promote healthy growth and movement.

Being mindful of these elements and more when it comes to designing an office space is important. “Given the nature of today’s work processes, how can the workplace better support human performance? How can the workplace support all of the different activities involved with knowledge work – things like collaboration, creativity, innovation, deep thinking and mentorship? One way to better understand the nature of human performance is through a definition used by organizational psychologists, who believe it is enabled through a blend of ability, motivation and opportunity.

PERFORMANCE = ABILITY x MOTIVATION x OPPORTUNITY

Performance is a function of the three factors acting together. Ability has to do with whether a person can do a task. Motivation is a measure of whether a person wants to do it. Opportunity is about accessibility; a person can’t do a task if she is not given a chance or if she is denied access to necessary resources or amenities.”

The following are ten workplace considerations which can help to develop the ideal space:

  1. Thermal Comfort and Temperature
  2. Access to Nature, Views and Daylight
  3. Sensory Change and Variability
  4. Color
  5. Noise Control
  6. Crowding
  7. Human Factors and Ergonomics
  8. Indoor Air Quality
  9. Choice
  10. Employee Engagement (source: hok.com)

At Burovision our aim is to ensure that we take all of those mentioned considerations and anything specific to your brand that would be relevant to your space and create the optimal environment for your team.
