Two of the biggest office complaints are a lack of space and low productivity. It would be nice if we could all work constantly without taking up any physical area, but that’s just not possible yet. Employees actually work better when they are comfortable, focused, and have the right amount of collaboration or private space. This doesn’t mean you have to completely redesign your whole office. You can actually just tweak a few things to get many of the same results in increased space and productivity.
1. Instead of replacing your whole storage system, add a movable tracked system.
Storage can take up a lot of space. But it doesn’t have to. Instead of adding more rows of shelving or lateral cabinets that will all need a lot of space, think about putting them on tracks. This way you removed the aisles typically needed to access stored items. (Check out our selection movable tracked systems that you can use to maximize your storage space.)
2. Create a collaborative space quickly with nest-n-stack tables.
There aren’t always meetings happening in the conference room, so many times it just sits there empty and only gets used when teams need to collaborate. Now, you can use it for more with the nest-n-stack tables. They set-up in seconds for easy collaboration, and then fold down and stack up just as fast to move out of the way for other activities.
3. Use hanging compartments so you don’t have to convert your filing system.
Top tab, end tab, color coded, large and small. More than likely over the years your filing system has changed, leaving you with a lot of different types of files. Instead of spending the time and money converting all of those files to one system (that you may not like within a few years), put them all in hanging compartments. Any type of file will fit in the compartments, and they’ve got a magnified label that makes for easy identification and retrieval.
4. For extra storage security add some rolling doors.
Locking file cabinets are great for securing information. Too bad they take up so much space and won’t store anything but top tab files. An easy solution to store all kinds of information is to move items to open shelving. But what about the security? Well, all you have to do is add rolling doors, and instantly everything is safe and secure.
