Your employees are a vital part of your business. If your employees aren’t engaged, creative, and productive, then your business isn’t either.
But what causes these issues in the workplace? And what can you do to fix these issues before they can become a major problem for your business?
Lack of engagement
Lack of engagement has long been an issue in the American workplace. In fact, up to 70% of employees in the U.S. aren’t engaged in their workplace, according to Gallup’s “State of the American Workplace.”
Employees who are engaged are enthusiastic about their work, involved in their workplace, and committed to their jobs. But there are many things that can keep your employees from being engaged.
If your workplace has a great company culture and there’s trust between you and your employees, there’s a chance your low engagement levels are actually because of the workplace itself.
Lack of creativity
Creativity is essential whether you work at a design firm or in the hospitality industry. Things like fear of failure and lack of collaboration can zap the creativity from your team.
Low creativity can also be a sign that your team is stuck in a rut. You just need to find the solution that helps you manage those feelings of being stuck.
Lack of productivity
Low productivity is a common problem for many businesses and it isn’t always because of the employees themselves, either. You or your recruiter may have noticed red flags on their resume or during their interview if that were the case.
Sometimes low productivity can be a sign your workplace needs a facelift. Common causes for workplace-related low productivity levels include:
- Lack of quiet spaces
- Unrealistic expectations
- Poor work-life balance
What’s the solution?
There’s a reason why you see wall art in hospitals and restaurant decor in your favorite cafe. It’s because wall art provides stress relief, inspiration, and a relaxing atmosphere where you want it most.
If you have a workplace where low productivity, poor creativity, and lack of engagement are major issues and you’ve already done what you can to solve those problems, wall art is the key. Up to 94% of survey respondents believe that artwork makes their workplace feel more welcoming.
