Cost Reduction

Many business owners may look at this point and scoff. Yes, it takes money to update to a modern office design. But there are many ways to create a friendly office environment without spending Google-level amounts. Office Snapshots makes the very good point that simply updating furniture is a cost-effective office update that revolutionizes the design.

If building or remodeling an office space, larger sustainable efforts can be made to save even more money and better health. Choosing building materials that are long-lasting can make a big impact on sustainability.

According to, making a building design sustainable can reduce annual energy costs from 30-50%, creating a ROI in five to 10 years.

Adaptable and Larger Spaces

No matter if choosing an open office or modular spaces, modern designs are not limiting themselves on space. Larger spaces take away from that cramped cubicle mindset of past offices. More companies are also choosing modular designs that allow them change and adapt the setting based on the business’ current needs.

Increased Productivity

US News performed a case study where they analyzed the impact of poor office design on productivity. They proved that inadequate designs reduce employee capacity and offered suggestions for improvement. Companies who get creative in their office design to serve the workplace needs of their employees will see an increase in happiness and productivity of their workforce.

Better Employee Well-Being

The traditional office had all things bad for employee health. The modern office understands that sitting all day in a poorly ventilated office with fluorescent lighting can actually reduce lifespan. A report from the World Green Building Council outlines changes to make in an office design to improve the health of employees. This includes natural lighting, better air quality and ergonomic spaces that get people out from behind the desk.

When salaries and benefits make up 90% of what an organization spends, creating an office design that in the end improves employee health and productivity is an investment worth pursuing.
