How Your Office Can Influence Productivity

posted by Chris Valentine

These days, a lot of people have ‘laptop jobs.’ They don’t have to stay in the office to get their job done. That’s why so many employees all over the world fight for the opportunity to work remotely now. Most companies still don’t allow their employees to do so. However, numerous studies suggest that people can be more productive while working at home. Here are some factors that kill productivity in the office:


Unfortunately, the windowless workplace is still a thing. Renting this kind of office is cheaper. On the other hand, the lack of natural light in the office can make you feel tired pretty fast. Sunlight can help deal with depression and anxiety. So, every employer should install blue-tinted lighting in order to keep their employees focused (in case there are no windows). Or, give everyone a choice to choose the working space. Some feel comfortable working in the coffee shop, while others would prefer to work on the balcony of their house.

Air quality

Some employees complain that it’s too hot, others feel cold and don’t allow to open windows. This doesn’t only lead to war in the office, but it also reduces productivity among employees. There should be proper air circulation in your office so that you can stay concentrated.

People all around you

Working with people seems like a good idea because being social is healthy. On the other hand, how many times have you been distracted by your colleagues? Some of them complain too much, others gossip. Locking yourself into negative conversations can drain your energy and influence your productivity. Of course, not all people complain and gossip at work. However, it takes some time to find a friendly and supportive team.
