How Renovation Can Lead to Team Productivity
At Professional Building Services (PBS), we’ve successfully designed and executed many commercial renovations over the years. We’ve experienced firsthand the positive change a renovation can have on the overall mood and functionality of a space.
When was the last time you invested in the look and feel of your workspace? Has it become outdated or does it feel uninspired? Maybe you’ve considered renovating but you’re not sure if your return on investment will be worthwhile. As a business owner, your workplace is the visual representation of your company and should be inviting to everyone who steps inside. This includes both your team and customers of the business. By periodically renovating your space, you’re investing in the long-term growth of your business and your team.
A Happy Team is a More Productive Team
There are many benefits to having a happy team. Arguably, one of the biggest benefits is higher productivity. Harvard Business Review calls this the “Happiness Dividend”. Their research found that having happy employees raises sales by an average of 37%, productivity by 31%, and accuracy on tasks by 19%. Those are dramatic results! Although strong leadership, internal programs and benefits all contribute to these numbers, having an inviting and functional space where your team feels energized, motivated and at peace is equally important.
How to Improve Your Commercial Space
At PBS, we have been blessed with many great partnerships over the years on projects ranging from commercial and industrial facilities, to churches, to dental/medical practices and recreational facilities. Project success begins in the early planning and development stage. From the beginning, we listen to our customer’s desires and develop a plan that will ultimately streamline the renovation process while carefully navigating the logistics of an often occupied environment.
There are many different ways you can improve the productivity and functionality of your space. Below are a few examples.
- Add conference rooms and other group work areas
- Add a “brain break” room with activities that increase blood flow and spark creativity
- Create an open floor plan by eliminating walls that create unnecessary barriers
- Install additional windows for added sunlight
- Invest in updated furniture, fixtures and fresh paint
There are many factors that go into renovating a successful commercial space. A few updates, big or small, can make a huge difference. For more information, please contact our team at 855.672.4010 or click here. We look forward to discussing how we may serve you.
