If a grey office cubicle leaves you feeling unmotivated, you're not alone.
Simply by customising your workspace to your own tastes, you can improve your job satisfaction and morale, studies show. In fact, allowing employees to personalise their work environment can positively impact a company's bottom line by increasing productivity and reducing staff turnover, noted a 2007 study Workplace Personalization and Organizational Culture.
A 2010 study from two occupational psychologists at the University of Exeter found that employees who were permitted to decorate their small office as they wished were more productive than those who had no control of their area's appearance.
Whether you have a corner office or an open desk in a cubicle farm, there are plenty of ways to incorporate your own personal style that go beyond adding a bobble head figurine or a few picture frames. If creativity, fitness or ergonomics is your thing, you can transform your work area from a basic space into a mini art, entertainment or fitness center — no standing desk treadmills required.
