Work Smart: How Smart Workers are Leveraging the Power of Prioritization

Worksmart How Smart Workers are Leveraging the Power of Prioritization The phrase “work smarter, not harder” is everywhere, but for a good reason. We spend so much of our time working, but how much are we actually getting done? Working smart means being productive not just busy. If at the end of the day, all you’ve done is clean out your email (good for you, by the way!), was that really a productive use of your time?   Be Productive, not Busy Smart workers and savvy employers are beginning to understand that being busy and being productive are very different. Productive employees are good for the business and are more satisfied with their jobs. They produce higher quality work in less time. Meanwhile, their busy counterparts are feeling overwhelmed, working really hard, but not working smart. Smart workers can also make use of [...]

Worktogether Creating Collaborative Spaces That Work As the modern office continues to change, interior designers and office furniture manufacturers must adapt to fit the needs of today’s employees and businesses. While classic office design focused (a bit too much) on spaces to do individual, heads down work, offices of the future are far more flexible. People want options, movement, and creative environments in which to work. They don’t want to be stuck in a boring cubicle or siloed off from their colleagues in their own little corner of a huge office building. The modern office should encourage people to work together, communicate (in person!), and move around with ease. There are a variety of ways to creates collaborative spaces in the modern office, but here are a few of our favorites:     Benching systems, for solo work and collaboration The open office [...]

Work Inspired: Creative Office Interiors Increase Happiness and Productivity

Workinspired Creative Office Interiors Increase Happiness and Productivity Offices used to have a boring, predictable layout: a sea of cubicles or hallways lined with private offices. Workplace interior design was generally drab. The spaces were highly functional, but not interesting. Offices of the past did not attempt to increase employees’ happiness or productivity. Now, office interiors are becoming more open, flowing, and fun. The adoption of huddle spaces and lounge-like coworking areas are slowly replacing stiff conference rooms and cubicles. The walls of private offices are coming down in favor of open office plans, while maintaining a focus on flexibility, privacy, and noise reduction. Modern workplace interior design is not only more visually interesting, but can have a positive impact on behavior and mood. Human-centered design, natural lighting, greenery, and flexible layouts boost happiness, health, and productivity.   Creative Design Interesting colors, textures, architecture, and [...]
