BRINGING NATURE INSIDE
October 26th, 2022
Houseplants have long been associated with improved wellbeing, but there are many other ways you can bring nature into your office. Think about how you can incorporate natural materials, elements of the weather and light into your space.
Artwork showing nature, such as a photo of a forest, can be an excellent way to create a more welcoming office environment.
Natural materials such as wood, clay & rattan can be incorporated through the furniture or in more subtle ways, such as a photo frame.
Use natural colours to set the mood of your office space. Neutral tones, blues and greens can work really well!
How about a diffuser to remind you of the outdoors?
Even something as simple as opening a window for some fresh air can help to reset and refocus the mind.
With large windows to let in natural light in all of the offices at Lanswoodpark, we’ve given you a head start!
AN AUTUMN UPDATE
September 28th, 2022
The weather is certainly starting to feel more Autumnal, but here at Lanswoodpark we’ve got you covered! Our office spaces provide a comfortable working environment all year round, with Air Handling Heating and low energy lighting.
The topic of ‘burnout’ has been in the news recently, defined by the World Health Organisation as ‘chronic occupational stress’. Many people will have experienced burnout at some point in their life. A recent article by Stylist Magazine discusses the current overwhelming feeling of emotional exhaustion amongst the workforce, for which the pandemic is partly accountable. So how can we make a change?
Whilst many workplaces have tried to tackle the symptoms of the issue, the importance of getting to the root cause has been overlooked. Stylist magazine goes on to say that access to mental health services and opportunities for shorter work weeks are a great start, but in order to see any real change there needs to be honest conversations between employers and employees so that views amongst the whole workforce align and employees feel supported and understood.
August 31st, 2022
If you’re searching for the perfect setting for your business and employees, look no further than Aster House. Each spacious, modern office comes complete with a variety of features including comfort cooling, designated parking, private access & tea points, high level security, high speed broadband and more.
Throughout the rest of the site you can find delicious snacks and meals at the Shed cafe, outside spaces to enjoy your breaks and meeting rooms.

IMPROVING EMPLOYEE WELL-BEING
July 27th, 2022
As many of us will have experienced, there is a clear link between the physical office environment and the well-being of employees.

Ideal for employees to connect and communicate, there is also plenty of opportunity to create areas of privacy.

BENEFITS OF WORKING FROM THE OFFICE
January 31st, 2022
With working from the office on the rise and 70% of working adults now travelling to work (October 2021, ONS), we take a look at some of the benefits an office space can offer.
- Collaboration, networking and group work are some of the key advantages, also developing interpersonal skills. According to the ONS this year, working adults claimed the biggest negative of working from home is a lack of collaboration.
- It helps to maintain a healthy work-life balance by keeping them separate and ensuring structure is built into the day.
- There are guaranteed workplace standards, so employees can utilise these regardless of what their home environment is like.
- Offices promote professional development so employees are more likely to progress in their career.
- A report published by Global Property Consultants, Clutton's found that pre-pandemic, 81% of commercial office tenants attributed better business performance to workspace connectivity.
