Productivity is at the core of an organisation and creating a space that enhances this is key. Open plan environments can foster collaboration, but can also be a space where it is difficult to focus uninterrupted or without being distracted. This strain to concentrate as well as dealing with glare, uncomfortable seating postures, neck strain from working without properly adjustable monitors can add to physical fatigue, drastically reducing individual productivity throughout the day.

Aside from providing the necessary equipment to foster wellness in the workplace, one solution is to create a dedicated concentration area (within the general open office environment) akin to a library where the house rules apply – no noise, no distraction and certainly no mobile phone usage or online conference calls being made in this area. Another solution would be to create focus pods for those critical times in the day.
