What is the most inspiring aspect of your office space? For employees, many will share how much they enjoy a great view. Talk with some employees long enough and they will bring up how disappointed they are in the lack of a view, or even having no windows in their offices. What benefit can a great view have toward inspiration? Here are some tips and facts about the importance of a great view from your office window:
Inspiration is Essential
Most business professionals today agree that the attitude of inspiration at work has changed over the past decades. Efficiency used to be the sole emphasis in the office. The goal was to create a lack of distraction with one’s nose to the grindstone. The main focus was on task completion. Today the emphasis is on innovation, creative thinking, and outside-the-box ideas. The emphasis in office design has moved to inspire an active mind while allowing restful moments to unlock a staff person’s creativity. Surveys conducted for inspirational ideas from workers show that most aspire to have windows with a pleasant view somewhere near or in their workspace.
Just as new staff workers and department executives need to understand you via your environment, so does a potential or current client. You need them to trust your professionalism and ability to work together on critical projects and orders. Does your space tell clients that you are on top of things or that they can trust your integrity and word? Are you organized? Does your space show that your company is doing well financially? Is it designed to express your company values?
You might ask what a gorgeous outdoor view might have to do with the importance of staying active? The average person in the US sits between 7 and 15 hours per day. Businesses who want their employees to thrive regarding well-being and inspiration should encourage an active lifestyle. Many companies encourage their employees with exercise equipment or gym memberships in their HR package. Simply combining a great view of the outdoors with a flexible schedule and breaks from work can do wonders for inspiring a refreshing walk outside and letting creativity flow.
The Comforts of Home
The new standard in inspiring office design is creating a home-like atmosphere that combines useful tools and amenities for getting work done with aspects of comfortable home design and décor. Along with plants and color, natural lighting and a pleasant view are among the top residential pluses for comfort. These very concepts are being sought after in office spaces since workers can spend more than half their time in these spaces.
