Moving your office to a new space? Just starting out with a new office space or flex space? Building the proper office atmosphere is key. Where some offices may feel stiff and unfriendly, others can be developed to encourage cooperation and friendliness between employees. It’s possible for a space to hold bad vibes, whether it be from a catastrophic event in the company history or the mark of unfriendly employees. That’s why it’s important when starting out at a new space to begin on a high note. At Genet Property Group, we have plenty of experience helping clients start out in new spaces with high hopes. Here are a few tips for developing a friendlier office atmosphere.

 

  • Hold an office party. Start off the space with a little fun.

  • Let employees pick their own spaces and have a say in the structure of the space. Allowing a sense of ownership and making employees feel at home is key to a friendly office space.

  • Play music! Decorate! Make the space into a home for a business, rather than just a spot where people work.

  • Section off community space that anyone can use, and provide amenities like couches and entertainment.

We are always happy to provide the right resources for your business and property needs, and to help your business run more smoothly and cooperatively.

Surfers Healing is a free-of-charge camp, staffed with over 4,500 volunteers. Autism affects 1 in 68 children, and providing support and love for every single one is the goal of this incredible organization. To provide this, Surfers Healing relies on donations from supportive individuals and businesses like ours. Kelly Sanborn and Ben Genet of Genet Property Group are proud to be sponsors  and volunteers.

“What if riding the waves meant changing the world?“ That’s the core message of Surfers Healing, a camp that seeks to better the lives of kids with autism by introducing them to surfing—fighting against common misconceptions about ability and disability. By introducing kids to the fun and riveting experience of surfing, Surfers Healing hopes to encourage kids who are often discouraged from experience the world to engage with what they love. Since 1996 they have held camps where parents, kids, and volunteers spend a day enjoying themselves in the sun and experiencing something new.

 

For many kids with autism, sensory overload is a big deal—something they must deal with on a day to day basis, making some activities take more time or more difficult. For Surfers Healing, introducing kids to a calming and enjoyable day at the beach is a way to help deal with the many difficulties they face. Attending a Surfers Healing camp is a day filled with meeting people who live similar lives and supporting the autism community.

At Genet Property Group our employees have to work as a team, just like any other business. Our property management professionals have to coordinate with clients, receptionists, leadership, custodial management, etc. There are many tiers to any business that should function smoothly together. You may have a marketing team that needs to function better with a sales team, or a clerical staff that would benefit from better communication with leadership. Here are a few tips for boosting cooperating in the workplace, and productivity.

 

  • Set up regular meetings between teams. Have a time where each, every week or biweekly, goes over what their initiatives and progress so other teams that might need to know are aware.

  • Find talents and diversify them. If an employee shows talent in a certain field, make sure they understand how their work affects the business. Show employees how their hard work benefits the company and their fellow coworkers. This will boost morale and determination.

  • Set up a line of direct communication between leadership and staff. Whether it be weekly or monthly meetings, comment boxes, an open door policy, making sure employees can speak with management about the business is key for open cooperation.

At Genet Property Group, we function pretty much like any business that uses our services. Our offices open up bright and early on Monday, and by the time the end of the work day comes on Friday we can be exhausted from a long week. Do you ever hit that afternoon slump during the work day? The time of day, maybe right after lunch, where you just feel so tired or so listless that it’s hard to focus on work? We know that feeling. Here’s a few tips and tricks that can help whenever you hit that afternoon slump at work.

 

  • Give yourself a short break (if the boss allows). Walk outside, enjoy the fresh air. Studies have shown that exposure to sunlight and a short walk can help boost brain activity.

  • Coffee! Tea! Get some caffeine in you, but more importantly make sure to eat a well-balanced and healthy meal for every meal.

  • Plan your sleep schedule. When you feel tired during the day, it can usually be attributed to a lack of sleep. To make up for sleep you might have lost the night before, plan tonight’s bedtime a little bit earlier to leave you refreshed for tomorrow.

  • Talk with a coworker. Sometimes you can be so focused and in-the-zone at work that you forget to socialize, even a little bit. Branching out and having a laugh or smile with another person can definitely perk up your day.

 

Genet Property Group has over 20 years of experience assisting clients find their ideal space, and we’ve made it through each of those workdays. We are always happy to provide the right resources for your business and property needs, and to help you fight that slump at work.
