3 Tips to Start the New Year in the Office Right

Happy New Year! A new year brings new possibilities, especially for our work lives and careers, and now is the time to make resolutions and evaluate your goals for 2019. Starting the new year with this list will help you be successful and can transform the way you work.

1. Evaluate/Change your Space

Start by evaluating your office space and if it accommodates your current task at hand. Intense focus work requires a more private area, while a communal space is perfect for the collaborative project. A change of surroundings can help anyone become more energized and improve productivity.

Start scouting a few locations in the office that support your current work and start using them on a daily basis.



2. Organize. Organize. Organize

Take the beginning of the year to clean out the clutter in your work space. Organize and file away past projects and keep all current files neatly and easily accessible to keep your productivity up.

This also pertains to digital files that may just sit on your desktop. Create a new folder or file away to existing folders to help you organize your projects.


3. Make the Office Feel like Home

Office furniture has come a long way and 'resimmercial' has brought the touches of home to make the office a more comfortable and desirable space where you want to work. Lounge chairs and sofas, biophilic design and personal items provides employees with a space that is welcoming and inspiring.

Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so. My environment was not allowing me to do my job efficiently and it was taking it’s toll on my overall wellbeing.” Kamay’s requirements for his home office were having a dedicated office space, great acoustical isolation, proper ergonomics and a great value.  Challenge accepted!

Setting Up an Efficient Home Office

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate.
