Why Office Design Matters

It takes three seconds for an individual to make a good first impression. Chances are that first impressions of an organization are made just as quickly. More importantly, research has shown that office surroundings have a direct impact on employee productivity, happiness and well-being. Surprisingly, what drives good design is not the aesthetic choices that are made. Instead, office design is successful when it is an accurate reflection of the strategic direction and vision of the company as established by senior management and employees.
