Investing in the physical and mental health and wellbeing of your workforce creates a healthy workplace and is simply good business, and a healthy workplace is one where making the healthy choice is the easy choice. You can work with your team to ensure all aspects of your operation help your people to be as healthy and strong as they can be, so if you want your business to perform at its peak, then you need to ensure your employees can perform at their best and this will mean looking after their health and wellbeing.
As they say at DB Interiors, “It’s important to bear in mind that employee health and wellness is not just about physical health, but also emotional and social wellbeing, and
prioritising employees’ health and wellbeing can have myriad benefits for your business. These can include greater productivity, reductions in work-related sickness and injuries, a decrease in absenteeism and staff turnover, and improved employee satisfaction.
If improving employee health and well-being is an important goal for your business, one of the first things to look at is the environment in which your employees spend up to 40 hours (or more) a week, and working with DB Interiors will help you to improve employee health and wellbeing through your workplace design.
Forward-thinking organisations are now implementing ways to encourage movement and activity throughout the day, and this can be by installing sit-stand desks, to encourage employees to stand more throughout the day; having standing meeting rooms; or even removing small personal printers and installing large shared printers, so workers have an excuse to get up regularly.
There is also ample evidence that integrating nature, sunlight, and fresh air into the workplace can have positive effects on health and wellbeing, thereby boosting productivity. Indoor plants, for example, have been shown to lift people’s moods, and even remove harmful chemical compounds in the air.
Similarly, if employees don’t have an appealing space where they can take a load off, it sends a message that taking breaks are frowned upon by upper management. DB Interiors can design your break area(s) by providing a variety of comfortable seating options, and using home- or café-inspired touches to make space feel more inviting.
By putting employee health and wellbeing at the core of your next workplace design, you can not only have a more inviting and comfortable place to work, but you can also reap maximum ROI through boosted productivity levels.
DB Interiors say, “When you put your people first, profits will follow. And when you have happy employees, you will have happy customers as well”, so for more information on agile office fit-outs, interior design NZ and office workstations please go to http://dbinteriors.co.nz .
