Benefits of improving the workplace

In the numerous studies that have been conducted it has been proven that changes to the work environment which includes office chairs, desks and lighting is appreciated by the staff. The staff in general appreciate that the company is trying to improve their workplace and that they care as much about them as their business.

Make a Good First Impression

The reception area is the first impression that you give of your company and as most people form an impression within the first 10 seconds of meeting a person the same is true of a company. If you are trying to portray that your company is forward thinking and progressive you need to ensure that this comes across from the first moment they walk into the company.

Whatever the size of your reception you can make that all important good first impression and for a relatively small investment you are able to say a lot about your company.

Look at the space you have to work with and then look at the type of furniture available. If you have a large area you may want to put a reception unit in and have it manned with a receptionist who is able to greet your guests personally. You will also then need to have an area for them to seat in whilst waiting for the appropriate person to become available. When purchasing seating for your guests bare in mind that people who do not know each other would rather have their own individual space so if space is tight it is more appropriate to have 2 individual chairs than one sofa. It is also useful to have a small coffee table where you can put out your company profile and trade magazines for them to peruse.

What size of table do I need?

Below offers a basic guideline for restaurant and cafe table capacities. These are based on a standard chair size, if you are using a larger chair for example if the chair swivels or is on castors then you need to adjust accordingly. Also when deciding on table size you need to take into account the following:-

1) What is the average number of customers sitting at a table. There is no point getting large tables if your average tends to be 2, it would be much wiser to purchase mainly 2 seat square tables and put two or more together for larger parties.

2) The type of dining experience also determines the size of the table required, for example fast food and cafe requires a lot less space than fine dining where there is more crockery, cutlery and glasses used.

3) If using a tray system you need to make sure that there is adequate space on the top to accommodate them.
