Break Away from Traditional Office Designs
Studies show employees benefit from taking short breaks every 2-4 hours. Consequently, it makes sense for companies to redesign the office setup to include a rest area where employees can relax, regenerate and share ideas.
What’s more, firms that permit employees to take a break, create a positive company culture, improve job satisfaction and increase productivity. A change in activity helps people refocus and deliver a superior performance.
The trend in agile office designs has also seen a rise in breakout areas. Flexible work environments harness modern technologies and the expectation of the emerging workforce and have created a growing need for a selection of stylish breakout furniture including comfortable seating solutions, quad tables, loop desks, rendezvous desks, modular seating, refuge booths and more.
SB Workspace has access to an extensive selection of breakout furniture solutions that are ideal for informal collaborative spaces that foster contemplation and brainstorming, or relaxation spaces where employees are given an opportunity to momentarily switch off for 10 minutes before returning to their work, refreshed and revitalised.
Breakout Furniture Fosters Employee Wellbeing
Sitting at a desk all day is not conducive to the health and wellbeing of your employees. Studies have shown that sedentary work contributes to long-term health issues such as eye strain, poor blood circulation, back pain and more.
What’s more, studies have shown that companies that encourage employees to take small breaks throughout the day have seen a decrease in stress-related absenteeism and an increase in productivity. Not only that, but employees report higher levels of job satisfaction.
Creating breakout areas in various parts of the office gives your employees an opportunity to take a break from the computer screen and take a well-earned refreshment. It also shows you care about their mental and physical health.
Breakout areas are known to increase productivity levels and foster staff morale. Studies have shown that when employees are given the opportunity to take a break, it increases their motivation and willingness to deliver an excellent performance.
Specialist Office Design Consultants
Investing in breakout furniture is not merely a matter of choosing comfortable seating. The type of furniture you install around the office should inspire various types of activities such as collaboration, building relationships with colleagues, relaxing or eating. The colours and style must also blend seamlessly with the surroundings.
Our innovative interior design experts are dedicated to ensuring your office is fitted with breakout furniture that delivers all the benefits promised by the concept of installing less formal seating areas and collaborative workspaces around the office.
With years of experience of interior office designs, we not only consider the function of the breakout area but also carefully select colours that are conducive to reducing stress, calming the mind or energising employees. Even if you only have a small amount of space to install breakout furniture, our expert consultants are confident and capable of producing astonishing results.
During the consultation process, we will determine what you want to achieve from a specific breakout area and identify which fabrics will be most suitable. For example, relaxation areas designed for eating or taking refreshments should have easy-to-wipe surfaces in anticipation of spillages.
Once our consultants understand your precise needs, we will present you with a selection of design concepts and make suggestions of where you can position the breakout furniture. We will also be on hand to help you with the installation process and ensure the transformation of your office plan runs smoothly.
