An organized space makes for an organized mind. FURNITURE Don’t skimp on furniture. Spending extra on ergonomics means staff are less likely to take time off work because of various ailments. COLOUR Colour has an influence on the mind. For example, yellow inspires creativity and green is calming. NATURE It has been proven that plant life increases cognitive attention and productivity. So pop one on each desk. PRIVACY Despite what you’ve heard, staff prefer privacy over an open plan office. It allows them to concentrate and work harder.

Mobile tech is useful in this sense. FUSION Modern offices should include entertainment for staff. They should represent a fusion of home and work. SMELL Smell also has an effect on productivity.
