Most everyone knows that when morale gets low amongst employees, productivity isn’t far behind. Finding what is causing low morale and low productivity can be a daunting task. This is when a facility management service can offer fresh eyes on the problem, and pinpoint the areas needing tweaking.
One area that most employers do not think about is the commons area. When employees are on break or lunch, they want an area that is stress-free where they can decompress. Going hand in hand with this is an area that is tidy and clean, without clutter or trash. It has been shown that when an employees workplace is in disarray, their morale begins to drop and in turn their productivity. By providing a nice, clean commons area, you are sure to see an increase in productivity across the board.
Another area to be looked at is lighting. When fluorescent bulbs hit the market years ago, they were quickly installed in almost every business. From offices to shopping malls, to doctors offices. But lighting has come a long way since then and now there are more advanced choices.
One of which is the LED lighting which in essence presents with a more natural daylight glow. This natural daylight has shown to actually invigorate and energize workers, which in turn raises morale, mental acuity and as expected productivity.
Finally, the service will take a look at your office equipment overall. They will survey for ease of use and placement for the most effective results. They might suggest that your office workers adjust their chairs to make them more comfortable and more efficient.
These are just a few of the areas that a facility management service can take a look at and suggest changes or improvements on. In the end, if you have happy comfortable workers you will have productive workers as well.
