Providing continuous training opportunities is an important part of supporting employee empowerment; and the success of any type of business.  One way to engage staff and promote easy access to office training is to design your conference room and, if possible, your overall office space, to be a positive learning environment.  This way, educational advancement opportunities can occur all the time, and, you’re also prepared to offer more formal trainings as well.

Make Space for Each Employee

Having space for each member of your staff makes everyone feel that they’re an important member of the team.  The conference room in particular should have the potential to be configured in at least one way to accommodate all employees at once.  This enables you to host office training events easily and offers additional benefits as well.

Versatile Office Furniture

The type of space needed for each office training event is going to be different.  While some situations will call for just a few tables and chairs, others may include group work or physical tests that require a specific type of office training room.  As a result, choosing furniture that can be easily transformed into different configurations not only maximizes space, but, also facilitates unique training opportunities and ensures you can accommodate everyone (see above).

Color Choices

From the walls, to the carpet and even the furniture the colors you select matter a great deal and can help cultivate, or stifle, office training and learning opportunities.  Beneficial properties of some of the colors include:

  • Red – associated with strength, ambition, and positive energy.
  • Yellow – known to enhance alertness and mental clarity.
  • Orange – energizing and has been shown to increase self esteem as well.
  • Blue – enhances mental control and supports creative thinking.

The Right Lighting

Proper lighting is also something to consider when you’re striving to create a positive learning environment within the office.  While natural lighting is preferred, it’s not always possible.  In these cases, well lit rooms are best for supporting the energy and focus required in a work setting.

As you can see there are a range of different strategies you can use to create an environment that’s conducive to continuous office training and staff empowerment.  The sooner you implement them, the sooner you and your entire company will enjoy the benefits they’ve already brought to many others.
