Every team needs a little inspiration. It gets difficult to remain focused on the task at hand and continue to produce high quality work for everyone involved if the energy is a little off. The overall mood of a room can be directly created by the environment of the space and the vibe that has been created. By making a few adjustments here and there, you can create an energy that will keep your team feeling inspired and open-minded. Here are a few ideas to make your space more productive. 

Clear the Clutter

A cluttered space creates a cluttered mind. Research has shown that when your workspace is free and clear, your thinking becomes free and clear. Messy workspaces with too many things and very little space cause the mind to feel full with little room for new thought. Create an organizational system in your office where everything has its place. Hiring a company like California Closets to come into your office to create shelves and drawers for storage and organization is a great idea. Team members will be surrounded by neat and clean spaces that will help keep their thought processes neat and clean. 

Get Rid of the Distractions

It’s easy to get distracted in today’s world. With smartphones, social media, tablets, watches, and every other kind of screen imaginable, our attention is always being drawn somewhere other than what we are supposed to be doing. If your workspace has a TV, get rid of it or keep it in a cabinet that closes. If your team is always distracted by their phones, create cubby holes for phones where co-workers can store their electronics out of reach so they can’t check them. Do you have too much on the walls? Takedown distracting paintings or photos that may keep catching the attention of people while they are trying to work. These simple steps will keep everyone’s minds on the work that needs to get done. 

Keep the Space Clean

A clean space gives way to a clear mind. Commercial cleaning companies are always at the ready to take you on as a client and come on scheduled days to clean your office space.  Keeping your office as clean as possible also creates a level of comfort when your co-workers come to work and everything looks and feels fully sanitized. This goes along with removing clutter, the more clear space, the easier it is going to be to get the ideas flowing and the motivation reaching higher than before. 

Ergonomic Office Furniture

There are several companies that sell ergonomic office furniture that help keep workers comfortable while they are working. Nothing is more distracting than a sore back or sore neck from working on a computer all day. Buying furniture designed to support the body while working is a great way to keep productivity high.  You can even buy desks that lift up so that team members can stand while they type to help break up sitting all day.
