Most business people work very hard to earn money and build up their business but it is very rare that they would invest time and effort in trying to upgrade their office and the working environment in which their employees work. This is a common mistake because it is the environment in which your employees work that will influence the way they work and doing something small to keep your employees comfortable and happy can make them work harder and be a lot more loyal to your company.
In fact, an uncomfortable office can lead to a high turnover because unhappy employees will leave and look for other work. Many company bosses and heads of work places constantly question the high turnover ion work places and will often criticize the employees but this is not the reason that they are leaving. Sometimes, the employees themselves may not know that the reason that they are leaving the office is because of the heat or the lack of air conditioning. All they will know is that they are unhappy and therefore will often be looking for better opportunity. Surprisingly, it is not even about money in many cases, because an employee who is earning a certain sum of money will still be able to earn the same sum of money at another place. In most cases, they will even be able to get a job that pays more.
Little things that you can do for your employees
If your office is quite hot and stuffy, you can consider air conditioning installation which will make the place a lot more comfortable for your staff to work in.
However, it is not just these things that can be done. You can even do little things such as buying your employees a small gift once in a while or even taking them out to lunch once in a while. Every little thing helps and will certainly help to improve your business and also bring in more money. You will be surprised to see just how inspired a staff member can become with just a small bit of motivation. In terms of comfort for your employees, you can also consider getting better furniture for your office because this is another thing that can cause a lot of problems for your employees even to the point of causing health problems. It is important for you to keep in mind that your staff sits in their chairs for long hours of every day which means that sitting in a badly built cheap chair can cause permanent spine damage.
