If you’ve ever had any training in ergonomics, you probably know that one advantage of having an ergonomically-designed workspace is employee retention. An ergonomic workspace designed to promote wellness can help employees feel valued by management, increase their sense of worth and improve productivity. With HON, you can create healthier workspaces without sacrificing design. Take a look at the environment ideas below to see how you can create an office that is both functional and fashionable:

1. Keep Ergonomics in Mind While Maximizing the Office Footprint

Commercial real estate square footage is valuable, but just because you’re trying to save space doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice ergonomics or looks—check out this great semi-private office setup that uses Voi® modular desks and the Ceres® task chair:

Without wasting any office footprint, this configuration empowers two individuals to choose between a sitting or standing height work position throughout the day. The Ceres task chair has been designed to reduce pressure on the backs of the legs and evenly distribute weight for proper support.

2. Make the Workspace Employee-Friendly

Sometimes leaving your bed in the morning is hard, and having to go into an office that isn’t visually inviting doesn’t make that task any easier. Help alleviate some of that difficulty by using elements like HON’s recently expanded active storage line – Contain®.

As offices continue to shift away from archival storage there’s a greater need for active storage that employees can use for more personal items. Contain is a perfect fit for those needs. Pair it with Voi, the Ceres task chair and some Flock® modular lounge seating and you’ve got a work area that has enough privacy to allow work to be completed, but is also a warm and inviting space where employees will want to spend their time.

3. Create an Office that Adapts to New Work Styles

Long gone are the days of individuals working heads-down in a cubicle for 8 hours—with the rise of the millennial generation, the way that people get work done is changing just as quickly as the age bracket of employees. There is an increased focus on collaboration in today’s office design that can be addressed by using products that cater to impromptu meetings, are technologically powered, and also provide a place to get away from your desk for a change of pace and to refresh your mind. Accommodate™ and Arrange™, HON’s newest seating and table lines, support an active and collaborative work style.

Use versatile office furniture to create functional workspaces

While providing a coordinated design aesthetic that could be utilized in any part of an office, these complementary product lines are versatile in their functionality as well. Use them in a café space that could also become an impromptu conference room, a break room where employees can have a midday snack and charge their phones, or pair with Flock for more of a booth-style solution.

The number of ways to style a workspace are endless, but one thing is certain: there’s no reason why an office can’t be both efficient and enjoyable.

Everyone has a goal at the beginning of a new year, but we all know it’s easy to get distracted from the goals we set for ourselves. If you’re looking to be more organized, here are a few of my favorite tips to stay focused on this goal in 2016.

1. Declutter your desk. With great new storage options from HON, there’s never been a better time to clear out some space. Too much paperwork saved up on your worksurface? If you don’t need to reference it often, consider filing it as archival storage using HON Flagship – or recycle it! If you’ll need to keep the documents close for everyday use, our new Voi Standing Height storage or recently introduced Contain pedestals and towers are just a few of HON’s wide variety of active storage options.

Now is a great time to sift through the important emails and weed out the junk. Start 2016 with a clean email box so you’ll be ready to tackle the essential tasks.

3. When spring rolls around, weed through your closet and donate any clothing items you didn’t wear all winter. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it for 6 months, it has to go! Consider doing this every quarter so you can start each season fresh with an organized closet and set your best foot forward in the office.

4. Set reminders to help you check in on your progress. Don’t let half the year pass before you mobilize! Keep your tasks and calendar organized so you can put all your effort into getting the job done.
