How Can Your Office’s Paint Job Motivate Employees!
As a business owner, you have the never-ending struggle of ensuring that employees are maintaining their productivity. But motivation can come from many sources — not just a tight leash and a metaphorical whip.
One of the most all-encompassing and effective means of maintaining employee morale and, thus, productivity comes from your commercial paint job of all places. How is that, you might wonder?
It’s all about how certain colours affect our moods. Not sure what colour affect us and how? Then just read on, and our handy guide will colour a good example:
Green & Blue for a Calm Mind
If the kind of work your employees have to do tends to err on the stressful side, then they could benefit from being surrounded by relaxing shades of green and blue. A calm employee will be less likely to burn out during a particularly taxing project and will be more likely to see the most effective moves to make through all the stress and mess.
Yellow & Orange for an Energized Employee
Of course, calmness isn’t always the best thing to maintain in an office environment. When deadlines are approaching and productivity is lagging, your employees will benefit more from increased energy. And to keep their energy levels good and high, consider painting your office yellow or orange.
Red for a Creative Employee
Somewhere in between energy and calmness lies perhaps the most important quality that any employee could possess: a strong sense of creativity. If your employees’ projects, output, and ideas are erring on the “seen that, done that” side, consider changing up your office for a more creatively stimulating red tone.
