The design of your office matters. Nothing kills innovation and productivity more than a cubicle. As a result, non-traditional workspaces, more commonly known as coworking communities have grown in popularity among entrepreneurs, startups and even with major corporations looking to leverage unique workspaces for their teams and offsite meetings. With amenities such as flexible workstations, private conference rooms, and invigorating breakout spaces, coworking formats such as Wellworth’s provide groups and individuals with unique accommodations and opportunities.
The shape of your work environment can also influence productivity. Many coworking spaces offer relaxation rooms and for good reason; a quiet space for meditation (or naps) can help people feel comfortable taking occasional pauses throughout their day. A twenty-minute power nap could be the difference between a productive afternoon or hours of mental fog. Informal, multipurpose breakout spaces provide a much-needed reprieve to stretch and step away to network, engage or to simply fill your water bottle or coffee cup.

Which details make the biggest impact on energy and creativity? Some are obvious. It’s difficult to be productive with spotty wi-fi or distracting background clatter. Less obvious factors play an important role too. Details such as office layout, wall colors, decor, carpeting vs. tile and type of furniture may seem frivolous, but they can provide immediate boosts to those working in the environment if cohesively and deliberately planned to foster a conducive workspace.
