How to Create a More Personal, Productive Workspace

When you think of your workspace, you probably think about a featureless desk you labor at every day. The truth is, you spend more time at your desk than anywhere else except your bed. And just as an uncomfortable bed means you won’t get good sleep, an uncomfortable, impersonal desk means you won’t be productive. Get more out of your work hours by creating a more personal, productive workspace.

A Productive Workspace

It’s true! Just a few small changes to your workspace can improve your performance and productivity. For the most part, this means adding personal touches to make the space your own. After all, we work most efficiently when we’re physically and emotionally comfortable. Adding items like a sweater or throw for those days when the air conditioning is a bit chilly can help you stay focused. You may even keep a stress ball or a fidget toy in your desk drawer for those hectic days.

This infographic from BusinessBacker reveals 12 hacks to create a more personal, productive workspace. Although many companies have policies regarding décor at your desk, anything you can do within those rules to make your workspace your own will help you stay happy, healthy and productive.

It’s your workspace. Make it your own! After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time there.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
