Feng Shui in the Office

Feng Shui


The Feng Shui Effect

Do you want to go the extra mile for your employees, and provide a calming work environment? It could promote productivity and improve the health of your workforce – follow our Feng Shui tips and see the results for yourself.

Feng Shui principles can increase the sense of harmony in a room, and can therefore remove stress and increase creativity and inspiration in the office. Here are a few pointers for improving your workspace:

Incorporate more greenery

Don’t underestimate the power of plants – not only do they look pretty and brighten up the space, they also drastically improve the air quality. Many indoor plants have air-purifying qualities, such as the Boston fern and the Peace lily. They will silently remove toxins from the air which may be causing your staff to become unwell or unproductive. Installing plants is really easy for any working environment, so it’s a simple step to take with proven benefits.

De-clutter the space

People generally feel more relaxed in open, tidy spaces and there is nothing more distracting than piles of paper and unnecessary furniture. Part of this comes down to how tidy and organised your staff are, but you can help with the interior design of the office.

For example, are all those filing cabinets really necessary? How often do your staff need to locate records and documents dating back tens of years? Consider upgrading to a paperless office – it’s a lot easier than it sounds. With all business documents easily accessible from individual computers, there will be no need for ugly filing cabinets taking up room in the office.

Improve the light

Office lighting can make us feel tired and can really affect quality of work if it is not sufficient. Nothing can beat natural sunlight, so it’s good to choose a work space with lots of large windows to let the natural light pour in. Then make sure the overhead lights provide enough light, and consider fitting incandescent lamps to each desk so individuals can control their own lighting.
Implementing these Feng Shui practices is a way of investing in your staff and your clients. If people are asked to work in an environment with poor light, no colour and nothing interesting to look at, you can’t expect them to be full of energy and positivity. Create an environment they are happy to spend time in, and their work will be an extension of that positivity.
