5 Ways Your Office Fit Out Project Can Reduce Stress at Work

Posted by Evolve Design Team on Jun 6, 2017 9:51:05 AM


Frazzled, burned out, exhausted; this is what happens when stress in the workplace catches up with us. Fortunately, by considering stress as a major factor when embarking on an office redesign project in the UAE, you can help your team avoid one of the key psychological dangers of big city life.

Create Collaborative Spaces and Plan Your Work Around Them

A recent article from Forbes identified 'reactive business policies' as some of the key sources of stress at work. Instead, businesses should work pro-actively, identifying problems before they happen and remaining stress free.

So how can this be implemented at work? By focusing on collaborative spaces in the workplace and facilitating communication through a smart approach to office design, a far more fluid and effective approach to problem-solving can be achieved.

Keep Cool in More Ways than One

We often refer to staying calm and relaxed as 'keeping your cool,' but this old adage has another, more literal meaning. By ensuring that our team members are able to regulate their body temperature - through provision of cool drinking water and sustainable cooling methods, for example - we are creating the perfect physical conditions in which to avoid stress and strain at work.

A Clear Division Between Working Area and Break Room

A workplace should be a space for work; a break room must be a space in which to escape from work. This means drawing a clear and obvious division between the two spaces.

If you and your team are to be refreshed and rejuvenated after a well deserved break, then this is something you need to incorporate into your next office fit-out project in Dubai.

A Break Room Which Facilitates Comfort and Relaxation

While we are on the subject of the break room, you need to make sure that yours is serving the purpose you require it to. One of the biggest risk factors when it comes to stress in the workplace is the endless bombardment of emails, deadlines and time-sensitive tasks that must be taken care of throughout the day.

The break room should be a place to escape from this. Consider how you can make your break room as comfortable and tranquil as possible, with the introduction of comfortable seating, sustainable climate control, and calming greenery.

Getting Green in the Office

Green plants and foliage need not be confined to the break room. Natural plants in the workplace have a calming and therapeutic effect, and can greatly reduce stress and boost performance at work.

Studies by NASA have even shown that green plants act as natural air purifiers, creating a far more pleasant and beneficial environment in which to work. Harnessing this power not only makes your office more aesthetically pleasing, but can make it a far more effective space in which to achieve your corporate goals.
