Thriving in Your Office Environment
No matter how cool your job is, everyone experiences some form of Monday blues every once in a while. But you know what helps? A really cool office environment and culture.
What type of worker are you?
If you are a visual thinker, it helps to imagine yourself in a space that tends to your creativity and productivity. If you have a type-A personality, your office can make or break your sanity! If you work better when you have people working closely around you, certain office environments are going to help you more than others. Or vice versa, if you work best at a coffee shop with headphones plugged in, you might wonder how you can re-create that in your office.
How can you appeal to every type of worker?
Having a flexible workspace is extremely helpful if you are working with a variety of personality types. It starts with opening the floor for discussion, what is something the whole team could benefit from in the office? Who needs to express boundaries? Creating a balanced work environment will take some thought and energy to maintain, but the productivity will speak for its self!
