Five Things to Look for in Your Washington DC Office Space

Office space design is a primary consideration when you set up your business in Washington DC. While you design your office space, keep in mind this question: “How will this particular office design make my employees more productive and comfortable at work?” You may consider these five factors to help you answer that question.

Organization. Make it easy for your employees to find the people they need for concerns that may arise in day-to-day operations. Suppose you have separate departments for accounting and finance. Since they usually work together, it makes no sense to situate these departments in the opposite sides of the room. If the two departments are too large to be contained in one room, their rooms must be next to each other.

Cleanliness. When employees aren’t afraid that they’ll slip on a banana peel or a coffee spill any minute, they feel comfortable. Comfortable employees are likely to be more productive, unlike their anxious counterparts. Have your personnel clean the office area regularly? Also, establish policies on cleanliness for the employees to follow.

Lighting. The amount of light in the office can affect your employee’s mood. If you want your employees to be cheerful and alert at all times, higher levels of light may be necessary. Dim lighting, on the other hand, usually relaxes employees.

Updated Equipment. Most office software is constantly updated. Suppose you have an older version of a word processing software. If someone sends you a file saved in the newest format, you may not be able to open it, if you are using an older version of the software. If you don’t address these seemingly minor inconveniences as soon as possible, the productivity of the employees in your Washington DC office space may be affected.

Access to Amenities. The typical corporate employee works eight hours, at the least. During those hours, the employee may need to go to the water cooler, the pantry, or the comfort room. These amenities in your Washington DC office space should be easily accessible to your employees to avoid other employees—who are focused on their work—getting distracted from co-workers who have to walk an extra mile to go to the comfort room or the water cooler.

These are some of the things to keep in mind if you want to create a good working environment for your employees. An extraordinarily good looking Washington DC office space can do wonders for your employees’ mood and productivity.
