More than companies know it, the workplace is one of their biggest investments in business. Aside from being the core of operations and the nucleus of company culture, office spaces can affect the productivity and well-being of employees.

In a recent poll, 31% of millennial employees said that they find their current workplace boring and uninspiring, citing a drop in productivity and creativity. An uninspiring workplace can also directly affect talent acquisition, with 21% of millennials saying they have rejected job offers because of uninspiring workplaces. This is supported by a study in 2023 that found 8 in 10 employees agree that “feeling happy and engaged at work” was the key driver to their productivity.  Meanwhile, in Microsoft’s latest Work Trend Index report, employees said that feeling uninspired and lacking clear goals were among the top five obstacles to productivity in the workplace.

Defining an Engaging Workplace

An engaging workplace environment fosters creativity, encourages innovation, and most importantly, increases commitment within the organization. It is also a space that caters to the needs of its occupants by providing quality seating, giving access to natural light, and allowing collaboration and recreation within the office space.

Dingy lighting, isolating cubicles and colorless offices all work together to create an environment that is uninspiring. By having workplaces that are beautiful and interesting, employees become more productive. Investing in the ambiance of your office will change the overall mood.
