A clear desk equals a clear head. If space allows, select a lovely large desk and have storage adjacent to the desk; a large clear space will ensure you feel organised and remain focused each time you sit down to work. Place your desk by the window if possible for ample natural sunlight, if you find you have a tendency to daydream whilst staring out the window then turn your desk around. This way you still benefit from the light, and can spin around and have a gaze when you have some free time. Bring some inspiration and life to your work space with one or two carefully selected pieces that you love perhaps a photo and a quirky pen holder.
Office space design is composed of several components, the look, the function, the hierarchy of the company, and monetary constraints. Within office design, there is the physical space that houses the company, the furniture, the artwork, the lighting, the finishes, the layout, and the traffic flow. The mental space of the office is a bit trickier to manage. The quality of that furniture represents can affect the hierarchy within your company. For example, if your executives are sitting in corner offices with high quality wood desks and ergonomic chairs, and the rest of the staff is sitting in broken furniture from your local box office supply store, you are sending a message about who you find valuable. This type of scenario can cause several issues beyond the immediate pecking order and unrest among staff. Employees who sit in ill fitting or broken furniture may have cause for a workman's comp claim, causing lost money while the employee is gone as well as the claim charges.
Try to be creative - open bookcases make great room dividers, and sectioning off an area to meet clients this way can give additional functionality to a single open space. Also think about dividing the desks to create an enjoyable working environment but still maintaining efficiency.
An open place office design also allows the greatest freedom of movement within a workspace, enabling members of staff to migrate, from one section of the office to another or from one job role to another, with the minimum of disruption or downtime. The arrangement of seating and workstations can be altered easily, especially if there is a liberal supply of telephone, power and computer points in the building.Another benefit of an open plan office is that it helps to encourage teamwork and enables employees to interact easily with each other. Communication is made that much easier since everyone is in the same room together, often with the workforce, supervisors and managers working together on the same floor. This means that any decision sought from supervisory or managerial level can be easily and quickly obtained making communication faster and more effective.
