How much is your advertising budget compared to your interior design budget this year? Companies allocate a great deal of time and money to an advertising budget each year and are grateful when those advertising dollars are successful. However, how do businesses retain those clients if they have not thought about what their space looks like? A one time investment in space design and furnishings will benefit your clients and employees for years to come.

Clients judge you by the quality of your waiting room. It pays to make a good impression! If your workspace or business shows attention to detail it conveys to your client that you care and that you will take good care of them. A well designed office is the easiest and most cost effective way to recruit and retain workers. An office that allows for an exchange of information and knowledge improves organizational learning and teamwork and enhances the social unity of a business. Employees in ergonomically correct desks and chairs are more comfortable, productive and log fewer sick days. Happy employees contribute to a healthy bottom line.

Help increase your employees’ productivity with a more comfortable work space. Experts from the Walter E.
