Which Colours Can Increase Productivity
This is a dilemma of many bosses across the country, how do you increase productivity without decreasing staff morale. There has been much research done when it comes to colour therapy, these colours used in certain spaces throughout a commercial building may just help increase productivity without staff even realising.
Blue – Blue is well known for its effects to both produce a feeling of calm and focus. When employees are calm they tend to be able to pay attention to what they are doing without as many distractions. Using blues in subtle tones can work best, going too dark however, may make those in the building feel walls are closing in on them and make a space gloomy.
Red – If you are looking to ramp up the energy in a space and glean new ideas from your staff, red may well be the best choice. It is an especially good choice for meeting rooms where you hope to bring energy and brainstorming. White – If you currently have a space that seems to be cramped and gloomy, a nice light neutral white tone can make a space seem larger and bring a sense of positive well being, however at times it can also feel sterile. When painting walls white it is a good idea to have coloured accents throughout the space.
Green – If you have a space that tends to leave staff feeling frantic and rushed, this can reduce productivity. Green is a great colour to help calm moods and relax people. Green is symbolic of nature and the outdoors and this can help calm peoples nerves, leaving them more focused.
