Thinking of reworking your team’s workspace? Looking at improving performance and making your office more comfortable to the type of employee you want to recruit? 2018’s office design trends can help you reshape your workspace.
As more companies look to attract younger employees and realize that workplace design impacts productivity – and therefore the company’s bottom line – offices are changing. With an eye toward your company’s workflows and harnessing the best your team has to offer, WSI designers can apply some of today’s design trends to improve your office.
2018 Office Design Trends
Team Based Meeting Spaces
Tired of trying to schedule your team’s meetings around other groups’ plans? Ditch the idea of a shared conference room. Instead, devote space for each team to have its own meeting space. Not only will it remove competition for meeting space, it gives teams a chance to personalize it to their professional needs and personality.
Progressive employers are starting to understand that employees don’t necessarily need to be at their workstation to be most productive. More employers are offering casual areas where employees can take their laptops and settle into comfortable chairs and sofas. You know how you can get tons done at your favorite coffee shop? It’s like that, but for your office.
Collaboration is King
The best teams play off their members’ strengths, and collaboration is becoming a major part of modern workforces. Whether it’s picking up on each others’ energy or trading ideas about their projects, teams generate more productivity. Modern design recognizes this – as well as the fact that traditional open-office floor plans don’t always promote collaboration – and designs workspaces to fit your teams’ habits.
An inspired team is a productive team, and office design trends are looking to spark that inspiration in teams. Whether you’re just breaking up the monotony of rows of desks with shared common spaces, or translating your company’s vision to décor, it’s a great way to remind workers of the power of their work.
