When it comes to running a business of any kind, you know that your employees are invaluable to keeping your business going. Good employees whom you are able to retain save you from high turnover rates, which in turns saves you money. Additionally, quality employees can help your business in other ways, such as giving your business a good reputation and working efficiently. If you are thinking of expanding your business or starting with a new office construction, then you want to consider your new office as a place for your employees as well as your business. Using this opportunity with new office construction can help you attract quality talent in many different ways, including some of the following:
1. Work with Different Spaces. Office spaces need to have a little bit of flexibility. Trying to put all employees into the same box, whether it’s an open seating concept or cubicles, often backfires on employees. Allowing for some open seating, some conference rooms and some quiet, private rooms helps employees to sit where they will be most comfortable and more productive.
2. Make it Comfortable. Many office environments are notoriously bland, boring and cold. Taking a little time and consideration to make yours neutral, comfortable, and calming is very beneficial. Give your space pops of calming colors and some green space, and you’ll attract employees who actually want to spend time at the office.
3. Keep it Clean. Sanitizing stations, contactless entry, and assigned seating are all options that help keep a workspace clean and healthy. This can be factored into your new office construction with very minimal changes that include a payoff in productivity.
