The Future of the Workplace

The Future of the Workplace

Posted By admin
May 07, 2020 Category: General

What does the future office look like, what kind of changes can we expect to see?  We have explored this a lot over the past few weeks, not only as an office furniture manufacturer but as people sharing the same concerns and thoughts as everyone. The need for protective measures has never been so great, in recent days we have seen many companies racing to get orders in to meet compliance standards.  We know this complex issue, as we are implementing these same practices in our facilities. When the workforce begins returning there will be many changes and there is no time to waste in getting solutions to accommodate this new era. Social distancing will be enforced/encouraged/expected (studies show well into 2022). High-density offices will phase out, as the demand increases for personal space. Higher demand for non-porous materials in high-touch areas, that can be cleaned/sanitized numerous times a day (glass/metal/laminate). Conference tables and collaboration areas accomodating fewer people. Open plans/concepts will need to have additional screens and dividers to ensure space. Working from home will increase as fewer and fewer people are required to be “in-office” enabling more room to accommodate the workers needing to be in the office regularly. Hoteling, “hot desks”, coworking spaces and/or temporary seating will lose popularity as the fear of contagions holds increased relevancy.   Recently our CEO Gregory Schneider spent so

NationalOffice colleagues spared* some time recently to take part in friendly competition at a local bowling alley. A total of eight teams comprised of colleagues from many different departments including our manufacturing facility hit the lanes for the 1st Annual Bowling Event.  “We had over 50 people show up and it was a ton of fun,” said Teresa Corl, Vice President of Operation at NationalOffice. A striking* level of skill was present! Awards were given to not only the highest-scoring team but also to the best style, best cheerleader and of course the "You Stink" trophies to the lowest-scoring team. Everyone had a ball* as evident in the pictures below! We are truly looking forward to the next event. *Puns very much intended :-)   - Article by Mandie Lee

Bauhaus is one of the greatest design movements of the 20th century. Founded in 1919, the famous design school has influenced all kinds of cultural fields with its revolutionary ideas and theories. Its indelible mark has been stamped on art, design and architecture. But you don’t need to be an artist to have heard about Bauhaus. We all have a feel for what Bauhaus design looks like, but can’t necessarily explain it. Until now… We’ve put together this Bauhaus infographic to summarize everything you need to know about the movement. Scroll down and let us take you on a Bauhaus journey, from its principles and characteristics to the history, milestones and evolution of the Bauhaus movement in graphic design today. A journey through 100 years of Bauhaus —  Designed by Lera Balashova 100 years after its inception we can still clearly see the influence of Bauhaus on the design world today. Its iconic and timeless characteristics will probably never go out of style. We can’t wait to see how Bauhaus will continue to inspire artists and graphic designers for decades to come.   Original Article

How the Color of Your Office Impacts Productivity

How the Color of Your Office Impacts Productivity

May 14, 2019 Category: General

If your office walls are painted dull gray -- the cold color of warships, concrete and cubicles -- it’s time for a makeover. A University of Texas study found that bland gray, beige and white offices induced feelings of sadness and depression, especially in women. Men, on the other hand, experienced similarly gloomy feelings in purple and orange workspaces. Similar scientific studies have shown that colors don’t just change our moods, they also profoundly impact our productivity, for better and for worse. That’s why it’s best to decorate your workplace with a vibrant medley of stimulating hues that increase output and spark creativity. Low-wavelength colors, like restful green and calming blue -- two of the most common colors in Mother Nature’s palette -- improve efficiency and focus. They also lend an overall sense of well-being. Bottom line: If you want happier, more effective workers, green and blue are wise choices.   Red, a high-wavelength color, is active, intense and alarming at times. The passion-inspiring color, not accidentally the hue of valentines, fire extinguishers and fire trucks, increases the heart rate and blood flow upon sight. That said, if there’s something in the office you want to urgently draw employees’ eyes to, it’s best to paint it red.      Meanwhile mellow yellow, often viewed by color psychologists as the shade of optimism, is energetic a
