As the modern office continues to evolve to better fit staff needs, we are excited to see the increased awareness of the positive impact — to people and businesses — of mindfulness in the workplace.

We’re seeing big strides as we follow science to better support us as productive, working humans.Here are a few examples of what we’re learning:

  • Multitasking – once the buzzword for efficiency — can hurt productivity. Mindfulness is the new multitask.
  • Skipping breaks and sitting too long at a desk affects our ability to focus and be creative.
  • Open workspaces are good for team meetings, while smaller quiet zones within the same environment allow for privacy and concentration.
  • Employers everywhere are learning new ways to lead from anywhere, support hybrid work and flexible work schedules, and confront workplace health and safety.

Good Design is Good Business

What has remained consistent over the past 20 years is the fact that a well-designed workplace is a valuable business investment. When employees are comfortable in their work setting, they are more productive. Increasingly, however, science is helping us better understand what that means.

Much of the research points to the importance of mindfulness in the workplace. Mindfulness is the practice of being in the present, striving to eliminate distractions to focus on the here and now. Science shows that mindfulness helps us accomplish more and feel less stressed at the same time.

“Science shows that mindfulness helps us accomplish more and feel less stressed at the same time.”

According to “The New Normal: Research, Survey and a Look into the Future of the Workplace Post COVID-19” by Morey Smith and Trevor Hardy, employers should make a conscious effort to support the well-being of their employees. One way to do that is with creative furniture solutions.

BuzziSpace manufactures furniture that is designed to help reduce excessive noise, so people can feel more focused, less stressed, and thrive better in their working environments. Here is some design inspiration to help you support and promote mindfulness in your workplace.

Noise Reduction in Hospitality Spaces

After the shut-downs, we’ve been eager to enjoy time out in restaurants and bars with friends again. But all that time at home has made us even more aware of how much noise can detract from the experience. The negative impact of all that noise affects servers and other staff members as well. Here are some featured products designed for improving acoustics in lobbies, lounges, restaurants, bars, and other busy hospitality spaces.
