How workplace branding can positively affect your employees

POSTED 09.05.22

 

Interior design matters – 97% of office workers see their workspace as a symbol of their employer’s passion for their business. Your office reveals who you are as a brand, how much you value your work, and how well you take care of your employees.

The workplace has an undeniable link with your employees’ productivity and job satisfaction. A poor environment will make your team sluggish and uninspired. Your office space is how you introduce yourself to the world letting everyone know exactly who you are.

Interior design elements such as colour, imagery, furniture, and even greenery all play a role in how well your employees do their job.

Make your walls speak for your brand

Workplace branding on walls

Choose to tell a story throughout your office by utilising murals and graphics.

Bespoke wall graphics are a fantastic way to add imagination to your place of business. Interior vinyl allows you to have flexibility over your office design and is a great solution for those looking to switch things up every so often. With an effortless application and removal, you won’t have to worry about damaging your walls in the process. Show off your core values, history, and achievements for your employees and clients to see.

Not only are your walls ready to advocate for your brand, but also your floors. Apply tasteful vinyl graphics to your floors and give your office a fresh and modern look. Floor graphics are a good tool to help you divide your office space or help someone find their way.

Consider using glass manifestations that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Transform your glass partitions into your brand ambassadors by utilising captivating vinyl designs. They are also a great tool if you want to introduce some privacy into your office.

Office built for comfort and function

Furniture can make or break your office and its importance should never be underestimated.

Most office work involves a lot of sitting down so you’ll want to keep your employees happy and healthy by providing the right support for their needs. Research shows that lower back pain is the most common cause of work-related disability in people under 45. The chairs you choose must be comfortable, reliable, and offer full support to your employees.

Besides the essential office furniture, you should also consider areas where your employees can relax and socialise without being chained to their desks. A lounge area or a quiet zone will allow your employees to mingle and give them a much-need break.

You can also show your brand through your furniture by choosing accents that incorporate your brand colours. Thoughtful design elements will complement your interior and make your office speak for your brand. Perhaps give your old furniture a new lease of life with a colourful vinyl remake? Making sure you choose a variety of styles and upholstery finishes will also help your furnishings stand out.

It is also worth thinking about how you can positively affect both your employees and the planet. Using non-PVC interior film wraps could be a sustainable solution for you. With more than 7-year durability, you won’t have to worry about paint chipping or cracking making your office look run-down. Interior film is also easy to maintain and keep clean.

Office with plants

Introduce some greenery to your space! Adding plants to the office can have a hugely positive effect on morale. Nature improves productivity, memory retention, creativity, and problem-solving, while also reducing stress. Deck out your space with plants and see your employees blossom.
