The Working Environment

   A person’s work environment can impact considerably on their productivity and happiness. The nature of work has changed over the last few decades, especially for office-based workers, with companies leaning towards hot-desking and clear desk policies with large open plan offices.

   Often these can increase productivity and communication between team members but they don’t always appeal to all workers, leading to a negative impact on their happiness at workEmployees have the expectation of a comfortable working environment, an area that is well-lit with an acceptable temperature and free of excessive noise. Open plan offices require employees to work in close proximity to colleagues, so it can be difficult to avoid interpersonal contact, or maintain privacy. Those who prefer to do their work in a quiet area or make phone calls in privacy may suffer in such an environment. The combination of excessive social interaction, lack of control, and limited personal space can expose employees to over-stimulation. This evokes feelings of irritation and frustration which can ultimately result in employee dissatisfaction and withdrawal.

  Reducing stress in the workplace due to the environment – including designating private spaces and being flexible with things like hot-desking – for those who prefer to work in one place may need to be considered to reflect the needs of the individual workers for the overall benefit of the organisation.
