Employees should feel safe, inspired and productive in their work environment.
Productivity loss and employee turnover are among the highest expenditures for businesses. According to Employee Benefit News (EBN), losing a single position to turnover costs employers at least 33% of a worker's annual salary to hire a replacement, with the overall costs at 90% or higher.
People prefer a well-designed, comfortable workplace that promotes health and well-being. Access to natural light, ease of mobility, incorporating nature into the office and offering a variety of environments to work is important. All of these factors reduce stress, promote creativity, and enhance the overall mood.
Happy, Engaged Workers = Reduced Turnover = Increased Bottom Line
Every element of a space - the shapes, materials, colors, the type and arrangement of furniture - is encumbered with messages. They cue behavior, suggesting ways to work and experience the space, which ultimately determines whether people are productive, inspired and gratified.
Spaces in Balance incorporates both Feng Shui principles and 'Mindful' Interior Design to create an inspiring and healthy work environment.
