6 Steps to Workplace Happiness
Business owners are always looking for best practices, whether they’re running a small mom-and-pop shop or a multi-million dollar company. Some self-proclaimed business gurus might say they have the secret to success–but the truth is, workplace success is as simple as having flexibility and forward-thinking.
At Relocation Strategies, we’re dedicated to helping companies big and small reimagine their workspace based on the needs of their workforce. After all, happy employees go a long way to building a profitable business (and retaining talent). Follow our six steps to workplace success.
1. Identify Your Goals and Needs
First things first–it’s important to come to the table with your goals and needs. These help determine the next best steps and how we should proceed. During our discovery session, we listen and learn. All you need to do is share!
2. Complete a Workplace Productivity Analysis®
What’s the current state of affairs at your office? How productive are your employees? How happy are they?
Once we have an idea of what you’d like to gain from workplace changes, we’ll collect insights from your employees through our proprietary WorkPlace Productivity Analysis®. It’s crucial to tailor your new office space to your employees’ needs since advocating for and adapting to your team is a great way to create a positive workplace culture.
3. Plan a Hybrid Workspace
It’s no secret that people prefer to choose the way they work. Some people thrive in a traditional office setting, while others find that working from home reduces workday stress.
Because of the changing norms around work, planning a hybrid workplace, unless your business is considered essential, is the best way to keep all of your employees happy. Every person is different and in turn, every workplace design is different. We’ll create a plan to meet the current needs of your workplace to help you keep employees engaged while also meeting organizational goals.
4. Assess What You Have
Next, it’s time to gain insight into what you already have going for you. In most office space reconfigurations or moves, deciding what to do with furniture can be overwhelming. That’s why we developed our proprietary, patent pending I.D.E.A.® software to inventory furniture and help identify what you need. By leveraging I.D.E.A.®, our clients have saved millions of dollars while moving, upsizing, or downsizing.
5. Create a Realistic Budget
How much can you afford to spend reimaging your workspace? Deciding on a budget is an essential step toward improving your workplace. Fortunately, Relocation Strategies has 35 years of experience advocating for clients and protecting their bottom line. We have relationships with reputable vendors and you can count on us to bring you solutions that don’t break the bank. Take a look at some of our case studies to see how we’ve helped clients transform their spaces while also staying on budget.
6. Design a Brand-New Layout
Now comes the best part–designing an incredible new workspace with your employees’ needs in mind. We’ll be with you throughout the entire transformation, helping you make the most of your real estate. In this final step, your reimagined workplace increases productivity by 25 %. Employees who love their office space are much more likely to be engaged throughout the workday–and that’s a win-win for everyone!
