    How to Deal with Lagging Productivity in the Workplace

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Have you noticed that your employees have appeared sluggish, sleepy, or even unmotivated lately? You may be surprised to learn that the layout of your office and the office equipment that you have incorporated into its design can have a dramatic impact on employee productivity levels. Here is a look at how you can deal with lagging productivity in the workplace:

    Invest in Ergonomic Office Furniture
    According to some experts, health conditions and pain are two of the leading causes of lost productive time and 40% of Americans say pain interferes with their ability to do work. One of the quickest and most effective methods for dealing with lagging productivity brought on by chronic pain is to switch out your old office furniture for more ergonomic and comfortable custom office furniture.

    Experiment with Different Floor Plans
    Lately, many business executives and interior designers have been campaigning for more open floor plans in offices. Open floor plans encourage productivity since they create a feeling of equality between all employees, regardless of their status within the company or business. This type of floor plan also makes employees more accountable and less likely to spend time on non-work related tasks.

    Create a Sense of Camaraderie and Openness
    Lagging productivity can also be a result of employees feeling distant and disconnected from one another. A great way to create a sense of camaraderie and trust is to invite employees to participate in team-building activities. You can even turn team-building exercises into a weekend of fun at a local resort or conference center.

    If you are in need of stylish and ergonomic office furniture and office equipment to inspire your team, then come into Office Furniture Expo Atlanta today. We've been helping Atlanta area clients transform their commercial spaces since 1981. Call (770) 455-0440 to find out more about our custom office furniture services.

    How Your Office Chair Can Help You Beat Lower Back Pain

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Many people consider lower back pain to be an unavoidable condition that comes with having an office job. In many cases, however, lower back pain is just the result of sitting in a poorly designed office chair. A well-designed office chair allows the user to rest his or her hips in a position that’s slightly higher than the knees. Good office chairs mimic the lordotic curve of the lower back, which supports the lower back and discourages the unhealthy tendency to slump backwards after sitting for a long time. If you are not comfortable when your lower back, mid back, and shoulder blades are making contact with your office chair, it’s time to upgrade to a better one.

    To browse a vast selection of well-designed office chairs, come to Office Furniture Expo of Atlanta. We have been providing office furniture to homes and businesses since 1981. Call us at (770) 455-0440 or visit our website to learn more about the office chairs we offer.

    Create a Collaborative Environment with These Office Design Ideas

    Last updated 1 month ago

    The office furniture and décor you choose for your office has the power to foster creativity and reinforce the company culture. Conversely, a blasé office design will stifle both creativity and productivity. If your company is prized for its creativity and collaboration, the following office design ideas will keep the creative juices flowing.

    Give Employees Design Autonomy
    If your employees want to bring in personal items, photographs, or even their dog—let them. These things will keep your office fun, natural, and comfortable. It will be easier for colleagues to build trust and relationships, which facilitates collaboration and fosters a strong office community. Similarly, let everyone brainstorm and take notes using the tools with which they feel most comfortable. For example, some people prefer to jot down ideas on a white board, while others take notes on paper or on a tablet. The key is to let everyone do it his or her own way.

    Games and Sun
    Two proven ways of increasing collaboration and productivity with office design is to have games and sunlight. Set up a Ping-Pong table or an air hockey table to provide a great outlet for employees who want to take a quick break with a co-worker. Plenty of windows or an indoor green space will provide a relaxing atmosphere in which collaboration can take place.

    Musical Office Chairs
    Forget the notion that there needs to be one desk per person in the office. Instead, invest in collaborative spaces: conference rooms, long tables, and couches encourage people to use different spaces and collaborate rather than separate. You can still have rooms and desks for people who need a few hours of quiet concentration; but if the majority of the office consists of private spaces like these, collaboration will probably suffer.

    If you need furniture for a professional, collaborative office, consult Office Furniture Expo. We have provided office furniture to homes and businesses in the Atlanta area since 1981.
