At Gregsons, we understand the importance of great office furniture because we spend 5 days a week from 9 – 5 in our office too! We even have office furniture auctions running right now – but how do you know when it’s time to replace your beloved desk chair?
We’ve put together a few pointers to help you decide whether it’s time for an office update.
1. THE FURNITURE DOESN’T ALIGN WITH YOUR BRAND
Business is about the product or service you provide, but it’s also much more than that! From the people that represent your business to the chairs in your boardroom, ensuring all of these elements reflect your brand is vital to ensuring customer satisfaction.
So if you’re a fun and lively brand – probably steer clear of dark or plain furniture, however if you’re a dentist and want to keep your patients calm, be sure to include soft and cool colours with comfortable seats to keep customer happy and stress free pre-appointment.
2. MESSY OFFICE, MESSY MINDS
There’s nothing worse than a customer who is disgruntled from lost paperwork or property. And if that’s happening at your business it probably means your storage solutions aren’t up to scratch. So, keep an eye out at our office furniture auctions for affordable cabinets, drawers and filing solutions that will help keep your place tidy.
3. IS THAT SOFA FROM THE 70’S?
We all know those offices – the ones with the yellowing ‘white’ desk tops, chairs with tethering edges and sofas that scream your mothers 1970 décor. The shame here isn’t the lasting life of tree-hugging furniture, it’s the customers or clients that turn away at the sight of them. Ensuring your furniture represents your business to the best of its ability can only improve your customer as well as employee satisfaction.
4. EMPLOYEE MORALE TOOK A DIVE, AND WE KNOW WHY!
A happy office is a productive office, and more importantly a comfortable office is a happy office. So why reduce the morale of your employees with chairs they don’t want to sit in? At Gregsons we often have office furniture auctions that include great chairs, and other pieces of furniture, that you can get them for a fraction of their retail cost!
5. THE HEALTH BILLS ARE GOING UP
You should put great importance on how you care for your staff, and part of that is ensuring their working conditions don’t cause a negative impact on their health. Many older furniture models just don’t stack up against modern designs and their support for ergonomic features. If you’re staff are complaining of back and neck pains then it might be time to look into improving the quality of your office furniture via our office furniture auctions.
