President & CEO
Lainie Bennett is President and CEO of Millennium Personnel Corp., an independently owned and operated boutique administrative employment agency.
As full-time employees, we spend most of our time indoors in an office environment or similar setting. Our whole day is practically dedicated to working within four walls. Therefore, it is important that we are completely comfortable and gratified within our surroundings.
The physical environment around us can have an impact on our mood and well-being. In turn, our mood and well-being can have a direct effect on our work performance. If you’re happy and content where you work, then it is likely that you have great work performance.
In the same way, if you are displeased in your place of work, then chances are your quality of work would suffer. A company that is staffed by satisfied employees will generally have very productive business operations and overall success.
There are many factors that go into creating a satisfying and pleasing office environment. Office temperature, noise and lighting conditions, and the temperaments of colleagues can have a strong influence on employee performance. As a result, employers should pay close attention to the office environment they provide.
If you’re an employer who is seeking ways to turn your business around, just observe your surroundings. If your office environment generally seems gloomy and unproductive, then try changing its physical setting. Simple changes can be made to boost employee morale and overall happiness.
It can be as easy as adding plants and flowers to your office environment. It can also be as simple as adding bright and vibrant colors to the office, which increase employee energy and vibrancy. Add them through paint, wall art, or even colorful office accents and supplies.
Generally, employees who are happy and enjoy being in their office environment would be more engaged in their work. They’d have better job performance and would bring about more productive business.
