We’ve all arrived at work on a Monday morning, unmotivated and uninspired to begin the working day.

That’s why it’s up to you as a business owner to create the right kind of workplace environment to encourage yourself and your team to work hard and do their best every day.

Unsure where to start? Here are our top tips for creating a productive and inspiring workplace environment:

Have the right kind of set-up:

Believe it or not, the space you work in can have a huge impact on your mental focus, productivity and workplace culture.

So why not adorn your desk with things that motivate you, whether it’s an inspirational quote, beautiful flowers or pictures of your loved ones. You spend most of your time at your desk, so you want it to be a place you enjoy working at.

Aside from your personal desk space, it’s also important to note the layout of your office to ensure it’s maximised for productivity and caters to all workers and tasks. Ensure you have an area for private work when you really need to knuckle down to business, as well as large tables for brainstorming, meetings and teamwork.

Other workplace essentials include:

  • Having plenty of natural daylight
  • Fresh flowers and plants
  • Lots of fresh air
  • Images/artwork that is inspiring and motivational

Encourage relationships:

There’s no greater support than the support from the people you work with so make sure you encourage relationships and a great team environment within your organisation.

Ways to do this include:

  • Assign team work
  • Have a weekly team meeting
  • Organise monthly team lunches
  • Plan work social events (from dinner, to bowling or the movies!)

By encouraging communication and fostering relationships within the workplace, you and your employees will not only enjoy coming to work, but everyone will be more productive by easily communicating and working together to get the job done!

Embrace technology:

It’s no secret that we love technology here at Melbourne Social Co and we believe it can be great for helping workplaces to be more productive!

Instead of organising countless face-to-face meetings that eat into your day, invest in a project management system. This will help everyone to keep track of their daily, weekly and monthly tasks without the need for endless emails or meetings – yes please!
