Empowering and Positive Work Environment: The Key to Success
Empowering and Positive Work Environment: The Key to Success

Work environment is everything, Imagine you have a job that’s so inspiring and motivating that you can’t wait to get to work every day. A workplace where your coworkers are like-minded and encouraging, where brainstorming sessions are creative and collaborative, and where your boss cares about your success as much as their own. Then, imagine if this dream job was held in an work environment that made working there even more pleasant—one with natural light streaming through windows onto comfy couches or bean bags or both.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not! Coworking spaces are becoming increasingly popular across industries—and for good reason. We’ll explore how coworking spaces improve employee productivity, how they affect business growth rates (especially in tech), who benefits most from these types of amazing places, whether one type of space can satisfy different types of businesses…and ultimately what makes the perfect work environment possible.

The work environment is everything.

The work environment is everything. The first thing people notice when they walk into your office is what kind of mood you are in, and if it’s a bad one, it can affect their mood for the rest of the day. The work environment affects how much you enjoy your job, too. If you have a windowless cubicle with fluorescent lights that flicker above your head all day long, there’s nothing enjoyable about spending time in that space. The colors and overall feel of your office will also affect how productive you are—so try not to go overboard on the home décor!

Let’s start with the obvious.

Let’s start with the obvious: It’s important to find a workplace that fits your needs. When you’re spending eight hours or more each day in your office work environment, it’s important to be comfortable and feel like you belong there. If possible, choose an office that allows for quiet time when needed. You should also make sure your workspace is clean, tidy and organized so that you can focus on work instead of cleaning up after yourself.

How does it affect your productivity?

There are many factors that can affect your productivity in the workplace.

  • How much does it cost for you to travel to work?
  • How much does it cost for you to rent a workspace?
  • What does it cost for you to get food and drink at work?
  • How much does it cost for internet access at work? In some cases, this may be bundled with your rent or other costs. If not, keep track of how much it would be otherwise and add this onto the total each month. You can also include any additional costs incurred by being away from home: extra gas money spent on transportation back and forth every day, food expenses (if you’re eating out), etcetera. If there’s anything else that comes up in relation – such as having an interview done over Skype – include that too!

Okay, but how do you measure workplace productivity?

When you think about productivity, there are a lot of different ways to measure it. You could look at how much work gets done, or the number of people working. You could also consider revenue and profit.

How do you measure your workplace productivity? What do you use as benchmarks for this?

So where are most people located?

Our research has shown that most people are located in cities. The reason for this is simple: cities have the best resources, infrastructure, transportation and entertainment options.

In a city you can get food from a wide variety of restaurants and you will never go hungry. There are plenty of grocery stores to buy fresh fruits and vegetables if you want to cook at home; otherwise you can always find something tasty on your lunch break at one of the many food trucks or sit-down restaurants close by. In addition, public transportation makes getting around quick and easy!

Which industries benefit the most from a phenomenal workplace?

Any industry can benefit from a great workplace, but there are certain industries that really stand to gain. Here are just some of the types of companies that have made our list:

  • Healthcare: A healthy work environment means both employees and patients alike feel better about their experiences with companies in this space. When people feel good about where they work, they’re more likely to go above and beyond on behalf of the brand, which makes them all the more loyal customers.
  • Retail: While retail can be a high-pressure industry that demands long hours from employees, it also has many opportunities for personal growth and professional development—especially if retailers themselves are committed to investing in their workers’ success. While it may not always seem like it when you’re working at your local mall or grocery store during holiday season, retailers do care about keeping their front-line staff happy (and motivated) enough so that they’ll stick around even when times get tough later on down the road!

Can one type of workplace take care of all types of businesses?

Coworking spaces are meant to attract independent workers, freelancers, and remote employees. They offer a place to work without having to purchase a dedicated office space or lease expensive commercial properties. Coworking also allows people with different skill sets and backgrounds to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and interact with each other in person.

Coworking spaces have many benefits: they keep workers from getting lonely; they’re affordable; they promote networking opportunities; they’re work environmentally friendly because less energy is used for commuting; meeting rooms can be booked on demand through an app so coworkers can meet outside their designated time slots (for example if one coworker has another meeting scheduled after lunch); and finally everyone in the building has access to shared resources such as printing/scanning services or kitchens where food items (e.g., coffee) may be purchased at cost price instead of paying full-price at any nearby store).

Of course there are also some drawbacks: there may not always be enough space inside the building so some coworkers might have difficulty finding room for their desk (though this could also be an advantage depending on how much privacy you want while working); air quality may suffer due to ventilation issues caused by all those bodies packed into one room together working hard throughout long hours each day which means that odors from sweat or other bodily fluids will become more prevalent—especially during summer months when humidity levels rise significantly due “to increased sweating caused by heat.”

What do businesses think about coworking spaces in general?

Coworking spaces are beneficial for small businesses and large corporations alike. They offer a place for you to get out of your home office, where you can focus on work without distractions. Coworking spaces can be very affordable and cost-effective—a coworking space may be able to give you access to the same amenities as an office building without the high costs involved in renting one. If your company doesn’t have enough employees to justify leasing a physical location, then it might be time to consider joining a coworking space!

Coworking spaces allow people from different companies or industries to network with each other, which helps them find new clients and gain valuable insight into their industry through shared experiences with others who are experiencing similar situations. Plus, coworking space memberships tend not only provide networking opportunities but also provide access to local events hosted by businesses within the community (often for free). This means that if someone isn’t sure about joining yet another club or group just yet but still wants some good old fashioned fun outside work hours…well look no further because working together is already happening anyway!

The dream job?… or the dream place to work?

You can’t separate the two. If you’re not in a good place, it won’t matter if your job is dreamy. And if your job is perfect, but you’re in a crappy workplace, then it’s not going to feel as great as it could.

In order to make sure that both pieces of this puzzle are up to snuff, we have to consider all aspects of work life balance:

  • The right work environment will help foster the right work culture for your team and make sure that everyone feels comfortable working together;
  • A strong leadership team can create an effective culture around goal-setting and accountability;

Just like having a great career isn’t enough—you also need an awesome office space!

Find a workplace that inspires you.

You are an individual. You have your own goals and ambitions, so finding a workplace that suits you is important. A workplace should be one part of a larger strategy to help you reach those goals, rather than the goal itself. When searching for inspiration in your workplace, ask yourself:

  • What kind of work environment do I want?
  • How does my current workspace inspire me?
  • Does it make me feel energized or tired? Do I enjoy going into work each day because everything is laid out so well or do I dread it because there’s no natural light and our office manager likes to play Justin Bieber songs on repeat?
  • Do I get enough space to spread out my notes when I’m working on projects in my cubicle at 9AM? These things matter—it’s easy to forget this when we’re sitting at desks staring at two monitors all day long! There are other options out there if yours isn’t cutting it (and if yours doesn’t cut it right now).


If you’ve read this far, you probably already know how important it is to find a great place to work. The best workplace is the one that matches your personality and philosophy of business. There are plenty of options out there for every type of worker, whether they’re looking for a traditional office space or something more creative like a coworking space. It’s up to each person to figure out what works best for them so that they can be as productive as possible!
