When a new or potential client or employee walks into your reception area or office for the first time, their first impression of you, your business, and your skills will automatically be influenced. Will they see organization or clutter? Will they see hard, uncomfortable chairs or soft, inviting ones? Will they see drab furnishings or a place in which creation is encouraged?
As your potential clients or employees soak in your office surroundings, they will make a mental note whether they want to align themselves with your company or not. Here are three tips to follow that will ensure your office will give the right first impression of you.
Put the Kibosh on Clutter
The first thing clients notice when they walk in to your reception area or office is how well organized – or not – it appears. Do you have to dig through piles of papers and documents to retrieve the one that pertains to them? Are books and magazines scattered about? Are there containers of half-eaten food lying open on your desk? Can you find a pen and notepad? How about a Kleenex box?
Culver-Newlin supplies a wide range of products to boost your productivity and keep your office area tidy and organized. From storage and file cabinets to bookcases, we have the right tool for you. We even have panel systems and dividers to separate unsightly mess from your desk and meeting space! Your office should exude an atmosphere of organization and efficiency, and Culver-Newlin has just what you need to create that.
Comfortable chairs and sturdy tables are essential for keeping clients happy while waiting or meeting with you. Stiff, uncomfortable seats and flimsy, unstable work surfaces leave customers with stiff backs and unfavorable impressions.
Culver-Newlin offers chair and table solutions that are just right for your office or reception area. Cushions, arm rests, and comfortable upholstery will have your customers feeling comfortable and ready to talk business. Our sturdy table options allow your clients to rest knowing their electronic equipment is safe, and they can get down to business.
When clients enter your office, you want them to feel inspired and ready to come on board with your business ideas, so it’s important to put your wall space to work for you, creating an interactive center. White boards help clients illustrate ideas quickly and identify and solve problems efficiently. Large, erasable calendars allow you and clients both to know what day it is, what holidays are coming up, and when to schedule another meeting date. Cork boards, chalk boards, touch screens, projection screens – if you want your office space to invite creation, collaboration, and connection, fill it with the ability to interact.
