If you are a business owner, it is likely that you invest a lot of money in to advertising while investing a little money in your office and the comfort of your staff that work for you. You, like many business owners may not realize this but the comfort and the happiness of your staff is directly linked to the amount of business they bring in and the overall efficiency of the work place. This happens both knowingly and unknowingly. In some cases, if employees are unhappy and uncomfortable, they will not make a conscious effort to work harder. On the other hand, if your office is hot, stuffy, uncomfortable and just difficult to work in, your employees may not be able to give their one hundred percent effort. If you were to provide them with comfort and better facilities, your employees will start to work harder without even realizing it.
Investing in your office and your staff
It would be a great idea for you to speak to your staff every now and then and ask them what they would like to have in the office that would make their lives easier. Similarly, you could ask them what problems they have with the office in general. You may have employees that tell you that the office is too hot, stuffy and closed up in which case, you could consider investing in air conditioning installation in order to change the way the office feels. If the office is cooler and nicer to work in, the staff may not be in such a rush to get out of the office or to leave the office for coffee breaks, smoke breaks and longer lunch breaks which could mean more work being done at the office.
If your staff have ducted air conditioning Gold Coast, they may feel more comfortable within the office and would potentially put in more hours of work without even realizing it. Every extra minute that a person takes as a break accumulates to wasted hours.Another thing you could do is to have a coffee machine installed in the office to prevent people from leaving the office to go to a coffee shop for their coffee and tea breaks. A break at the desk or in the lunch room will be much shorter than if they had to go out and even within the lunch room, the conversation would be more productive and work oriented. Although coffee does not cost much money in general, employees very much appreciate having coffee at the workplace free of charge.
