Motivate your employees through the environment

Motivate your employees through the environment

Scientists have demonstrated more than once the great effect that the environment that surrounds us in our lives has on our state of mind. For this reason, it is essential to be aware of the importance of workspace design in fostering good mood, positivity and productivity.

That is why in today’s post we present the 3 elements that create a good workplace. The combination of these elements, along with the tips we give you in the post The importance of candidate motivation, will help you create the ideal work environment for your organization.

1. Windows and lighting

Natural lighting not only has an impact on our performance levels and overall well-being, but also greatly influences our quality of sleep.

If you are not fortunate enough to work in an office with sufficient natural light, there are artificial ways to increase lighting. Even so, it is important that you are careful with the type of lights you use, they should imitate daylight as much as possible, so it is recommended that you opt for bulbs with warm and soft light.

2. The psychology of color

Each color affects us psychologically in a different way. That is why it is worth knowing the connotations and the effects they have on us, so that we can use them in favor of our objectives and the needs of our employees.

  • Green and blue: Provide stability and boost productivity and creativity.

  • Red: It is a more emotionally intense color and is linked to tasks that require a lot of attention to detail.

  • Yellow: Stimulates creativity.

  • Pink: It has calming effects, so it is a fantastic color for the walls of rooms where meetings can be tense or complicated.

Of course, we are not referring to the color of the wall, but to those communications, panels and others that may form the environment of your offices.

3. Natural decoration

Break areas are not only for employees to eat, but are also very important for employees to disconnect from work, have a change of scenery for a while, and interact in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

These areas will help you break down communication barriers among your employees, as well as encourage spontaneity and creativity in the office. The best ideas come from these kinds of spaces!

How is your workspace decorated? What would your ideal office look like?
