3 Things To Consider When Designing An Office Space To Support Innovation

Does your workplace support innovation?

Through many decades of office design concepts, plenty of trends have come and gone, but one thing is certain: The space itself is critical to the workforce's happiness and ultimately to the company's success. A workspace serves as a foundation to inspire creativity, spur productivity, foster innovation and support well-being – which all set the stage for a strong, vibrant culture.

At Varidesk, for example, we took great care in our office design, customizing the space to create a variety of zones where people can focus privately or collaborate. It's our belief that these open, multipurpose spaces foster a sense of inclusion and transparency. Everyone feels much more accessible and connected, from reception to C-suite. Those feelings of safety and cohesion lead to increased happiness, which studies have shown to improve the productivity of a workforce by up to 12%.
