Affordable Ways to Add Brainstorming White Boards to Your Office

When designing your office in South Florida, youbll want to include features that can help increase productivity around the office. An easy way to do this is by adding brainstorming white boards that encourage both creativity and productivity. The following are a few tips for addingB white boards to your office in an affordable manner:

Gigantic white boards for the office can be a huge strain on your budget, which is why you should consider hardboard panel boards instead. These boards are made out of MDF, but boast an acrylic coating and white finish that makes them work just like traditional white boards. Not only are these alternatives much more affordable, they can easily be found at typical hardware stores.

You can build a frame for your hardboard panel board, or just affix it onto a wall using double-sided tape since the board is fairly lightweight. Try to avoid cleaning the board with any standard household cleaners, but another great advantage of using hardboard panel board is that if you accidentally use permanent marker, you can easily replace it at little cost!

Save money and use hardboard panel boards as brainstorming white boards for your office in South Florida. Contact us at Morris SoutheastB for advice on finding new office space for your business.

Nothing wastes more time than holding unproductive meetingsB atB your South Florida business.

The following are a few tips to make sure your next meeting is a productive one:

  • Keep your meetings short. The shorter they are – maybe 30 minutes at the most – the less work time you lose. Not to mention, you will be forced to focus the meeting in order to finish on time.

  • Send out any materials you want to go over prior to the meeting. This way you can spend the meeting actually discussing the materials instead of explaining them.
  • Donbt fall into a monologue. Meetings should be about engaging everyone in attendance, not about listening to yourself talk.

Is Your Workplace Infected?

When it comes to your office, the last thing you want is to overwork your employees. In fact, if their workloads are too heavy, they may end up turning into “zombies” due to stress and lack of free time, leading to a drop off in productivity. This helpful infograph will give you some reasons and solutions to a lack of productivity.

Some employees will lie in order to cover up any mistakes or missed deadlines. To combat the issue of missed deadlines, track their projectbs status in real time and be sure to encourage them so that they wonbt feel nervous or stressed about their workload or about coming to you if they’re having difficulties.

Another huge problem is that many workers feel like the office is understaffed, which leads to them doing work after business hours. This will lead to stressed and tired employees, leading to more mistakes or poorly done work. Use resource workload reports and request intake processes to deal with this issue. Donbt forget to reward your employees and give them a break by offering things like free spa passes, but remember that these are temporary fixes. B If you’re having a consistent problem with understaffing, it’s time to examine ways to budget for more employees.

Use some of these solutions to battle a lack of productivity. For additional South Florida business advice, contact us at Morris Southeast Group today.
