The majority of people will spend at least eight hours each working day in the office, which is a substantial amount of time. With that in mind, it makes sense to make your office environment as healthy as possible.
A post for Care2 has highlighted some of the steps you can take to make your office a nicer and healthier place to be as we move into the new year.
One of the simplest things you can do is give your office a good clean. It might be a good idea, for example to bring in professional office cleaners in Woking to ensure that your work space is cleaned thoroughly.
As well as giving everywhere a proper clean, you should take steps like replacing blown light bulbs and getting rid of broken equipment.
Last year, HR News suggested that having a clean office could reduce your sickness rates, which means paying for professional cleaners is even better value for money.
Introducing plants to your office is another top tip, with the website noting that they can help reduce stress and fatigue. It recommends picking foliage plants, rather than flowering ones, as these are more effective at removing toxic substances in the air and produce more oxygen.
If you want to try and get more of your colleagues behind your healthy workplace vision, you could also start an office walking club. This can be as simple as going for a 30 minute stroll somewhere near your office at lunch time.
As well as being good for your health because it will get you out into the fresh air and make your more active, it’s a great way to get to know your colleagues a bit better.
