    Spring and the Office

    The days are getting longer, the temperature continues to rise, which signals the arrival of spring.  As you drive around your neighborhood and to and from work you will see green leaves on trees, perennials staring to make their return, and blooming flowers everywhere.  We are all spending more time outside and getting more sun.  There is only one problem, we still must go to work.  However, there are ways to bring the excitement of this new season to work with us.

    Balancing Spring Break and Work

    As we enter March we have settled into our routines for the season and the year; however, we start to think about our next break.  We are entering spring break season, and most Americans schedule their vacations around the school schedule of their children.  This can sometime be difficult because schools do not take parents’ work schedules into consideration when they make their yearly calendar.  This can create some challenges, but these obstacles can be overcome, to ensure we and our entire fa...

    The Opportunity of a New Year

    The start of the New Year brings with it the opportunity to reflect on the past and to set goals for the future.  Most media outlets, both social and traditional, talk a lot about New Years Resolutions and what changes we plan to make for 2024.  However, the idea of a New Year’s Resolution has become a meme in recent years.  Most people stick with their plans for a short time and then fall back into their old habits.  The best example of this is the crowds at the gym.  In January the place is pa...

    The most important goal of any space is for it to be useful and to encourage productivity.  This rule applies to the office, the kitchen,...

    Benefits of the Dedicated Workplace
    Benefits of the Dedicated Workplace

    The last several years have deemphasis the importance of having an elegant and comfortable office to work in.  Companies started and developed remote access allowing people to work from home.  As society moves further away from the COVID-19 pandemic, these same companies are once again realizing the benefit of commercial workplaces.  Remote work is nice and convenient but there are tangible benefits to being in a dedicated workspace and seeing your coworkers in person.  As the workplace environm...
