Summer office work: How to improve productivity?
The hot weather and vacations do not help much to better organize the work, and covid restrictions still prevent the mass return to the office. How is the work rhythm maintained during the holidays? We think that with some small changes, significant improvements can be made:
Ice cream for everyone
Standard coffee and water for the office can be supplemented with a sufficient amount of ice cream to brighten and improve the mood in the office. An ice cream party in the office would definitely lift the general mood and reduce the degree of summer sun. At Sofia Airport Center employees and tenants have at their disposal a restaurant known for its unique Italian ice cream. "It is enough for a person to eat a funnel by the lake and feel like on a real vacation," said the management of the complex.
More meetings, more creative work
Summer is a time for noisy companies, for happy moments and for new ideas. Use this energy by devoting the summer months to creative meetings between teams in the fresh air and strategic planning for the coming active months. Modern offices have already made the necessary changes to provide their tenants with more space for meetings and informal communication, which will give the comfort of home, without depriving themselves of the advantages of the office (all in one place at the same time, to are seen live and have high speed internet).
Flexible working hours
Covid helped us appreciate the benefits of flexible working hours - working when we feel most active, not during the hours specified in the employment contract. COVID-19 helped us appreciate the benefits of flexible working hours - working when we feel most active, not during the hours specified in the employment contract. All professions that allow such flexibility have already felt the benefits of using the skills of their employees at the optimal time for them.
And why not apply flexible working hours in the summer months?
In modern office buildings, these opportunities are also supported by the so-called hot desking - a flexible system for the distribution of jobs, in which each employee occupies the workplace that meets his current needs - a secluded place for concentrated work or in a busier area if there is a need to exchange ideas.
There is nothing better than real food produced by Bulgarian farmers. In times like today, people are increasingly striving for a healthy and natural diet. SAC has a tradition of organizing farmers' bazaars with the presence of regional producers of food, beverages, pastries and bee products. The bazaars are organized for all tenants in the building, and have already become such a popular event that they attract visitors from the surrounding office buildings.
Summer has all the qualities to become an active season, as long as we approach it creatively.
