Making The Workplace Your Happy Place

When most people think of their so-called happy place, they don’t think of their office – but is there a way that these spaces in which we spend so much of our lives can become a positive space? Here are some insights from our team of corporate office furniture specialists.

Principles for a happier workplace 

Extensive research from YourStudio found that there are five principles each workplace should embody in order to become a progressive, happy and effective workplace – purpose, health, freedom, growth, and community. Combined with your company’s unique culture and vision, committing to these principles works to transform the drudgery of work into a positive part of daily life.

This is especially essential for incoming generations to the workplace, as work culture has seen a significant shift from the traditional “work for a pay check” culture towards working for a purpose – being part of something bigger.

Introverts can come to the table 

Traditionally, the workplace has suited extroverted personalities, which has resulted in introverts being left behind – and a failure of businesses to properly capitalize on this talent and potential. Adapting the modern workplace to ensure both introverts and extroverts can thrive makes sense, boosting efficiency, increasing performance and impacting that essential bottom line. Key to this is creating an environment where people have far more flexible work options, from flextime initiatives to a variety of more private and more open work environments.

Healthier people means happier employees 

Health and wellbeing in the workplace is becoming a more and more important focus – not only because employees are increasingly demanding it, but because employers are seeing the positive impact on their employees and their bottom line. Creating a sense of purpose and a sense of belonging is significantly beneficial to mental health and developing that drive and passion needed for exceptional performance. Showing employees that their health is important by investing in complimentary health initiatives, ergonomic spaces, nature and wellness initiatives creates a more comfortable, healthier team where employees know that they are valued.
