The U.S. Census Bureau says Americans start over 500,000 new businesses every year, creating more than 2 million jobs annually. These businesses drive much of the growth in the American economy. Today, with unemployment at a historic low, many businesses both small and large are poised for unprecedented growth.
What drives growth in a business? It comes down to bringing the right products and services to market at the right time. Using the optimal equipment is a big part of this equation. Everyone knows how important it is to choose the best tools, but it’s easy to forget that flexible office furniture is one of them.
The Right Furniture for the Job
If you want your office furniture to be ready for growth, there are a few characteristics you should look for. Here are the top three:
1. Attractive Designs
If you want your business to grow, you must hire the best people. The most talented members of the workforce are looking for more than salary and benefits—they want to work in an inspiring, comfortable workplace. With all other things equal, a well-designed workplace can make the difference between your star recruit working for you or moving on to a competitor.
2. Different Ways to Work
Today’s employees are working in different places using different devices. Now that we are free to work from anywhere using a laptop computer, tablet, or mobile phone, it’s important to provide different spaces for getting things done. The ideal office furniture should be flexible enough for your employees to work both alone or in groups throughout the day.
Open offices with no walls may look and feel spacious, but they do little for privacy. Sometimes people would rather work by themselves—maybe they don’t like others looking over their shoulder, or they want to listen to music while they take care of tasks. Whatever their reason is, your office design should accommodate them. What does this look like in the real world? You could let employees use empty conference rooms, repurpose a supply closet with a desk and chair, or add a few customized cubicles.
