A Healthier Office – Part 2

Try and control stress levels

Stress is the single biggest threat to your health at work today. One effective way of trying to reduce stress is to ensure that you don’t take on more work than you can handle. Speak to your line manager if you start to feel overrun with your workload, they may be able to help you out by redistributing some of the work for you. Maybe invest in some stress balls so that you can relieve your frustration on that instead of snapping at a colleague because you’re under pressure to complete a task. It’s important to remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health!

Temperature affects your mood

Very low office temperatures can make you blue both physically and emotionally. Studies have shown that cold temperatures can also increase feelings of loneliness. Conversely, raising the temperatures too high can also have an adverse affect. Consistently high temperatures can make workers feel less productive. After all, look how you feel after summer months at work. Yes, completely drained! Experts suggest that keeping office temperatures between 18 to 21 degrees celsius may help you find the ‘productivity’ sweet spot.

Ask employees what they need

Make employees feel that they are listened to and that their opinion matters in the workplace. Sometimes, employees feel afraid to ask their employers what they need to undertake their job efficiently. Don’t create that scenario, after all you’re a team and should be pulling in the same direction to achieve the desired results. Actively encourage your staff to speak up and create a happier, more productive workplace for all.

Create a good atmosphere, change your surroundings

A workplace’s atmosphere and surroundings can inspire employees to be more efficient and passionate in their work. If your office is dull and boring, offering only desks and computers, you may not be getting the most out of your employees. Having a variety of spaces to both work and de-stress in can be a big step toward improving staff attitude and productivity. Think about redesigning your office layout to create a space for relaxation, quiet spaces for private work or informal meetings and make a conscious effort to reduce/remove unnecessary office clutter.

 Each business is different but, adopting some or all of these SMALL CHANGES can make a BIG DIFFERENCE.

I have been using Tindalls for at least 3 years now and I have found their service professional, flexible and ‘willing to go that extra mile’.  On-line ordering is very easy and prompt, with next day delivery.  Prices are very competitive for all items, including ‘one-offs’ or special requests.

Boardroom ReDesign

We are thrilled with our new Boardroom Table and Credenza! At 4m long and 1.5m wide we had our reservations about how cramped the boardroom would look but we were reassured by the team at Tindalls that it would look great and provide the Wow factor we wanted, it certainly delivers! Thank you for all your help and support with our boardroom redesign
