Giving your employees a workplace that is conducive to productivity is one of the ways you can value them. The furniture and things in the workplace should be free of air pollution that comes from the presence of dust particles, carpet fibers, low quality of air circulation, and the accumulation of germs on the surface of desks and chairs. To achieve this, your company should hire professional carpet cleaning services and good ventilation for the room using an A/C unit. Your cleaning service should also disinfect all furniture aside from dusting them.
Providing appliances that are useful to your employees is another way of giving them importance. It is great to let your employees have a place where they can spend their short breaks or lunches where they can drink coffee and eat snacks. You can have a small kitchen where there is a kettle, a microwave over and dishwasher for their convenience. Offer your employees a variety of drinks or a bowl or fresh fruits.
Choose furniture that is comfortable for your employees to use. If you want your employees to work really hard for the company, then they should at least have some decent chairs to sit on especially since they are working almost 10 hours each day. You can experience back pains and lack concentration with low quality chairs. It can cost you in terms of employee productivity if you have bad chairs. Changing your furniture to quality ones can improve your employees health especially ergonomic chairs or standing desks for your employees and you will see the improvement not only in their health but also in their attitude towards work.
Your employee should feel that the company cares for them. If your employees are happy it will definitely affect the way they will treat your customers.
