Getting the best out of your staff in the summer months.

Now is the time to start thinking about the summer months and how your office will be affected. Get ahead and plan your summer and see the benefits straight away.


Make sure that staff aren’t over stretched by planning everyone’s holidays in advance. Depending on how many people work for you, they may all want school holidays off together; try and plan holidays so people are off from different departments at the same time, so your always well-staffed in all areas.


Let staff come into work in lighter weight clothes. Or invest in air con units for the warmer offices. Have you ever been too hot at work? It’s not comfortable and distracts you from your day-to-day duties. Being lenient on the uniform will help staff’s concentration.

Outside space

If possible, create an outside space that staff can use when on breaks. Our heritage range comes in both indoor and outdoor finishes and is the perfect addition to any outdoor space. Couple the heritage antelope sofa with a couple of cushions to create a modern breakout area outside.

Half day Fridays

Some companies give staff half days on Fridays, why don’t you try it and see how it effects your business?

Flexible working hours

Could you introduce flexible working? Letting staff start earlier in the morning and leave earlier in the afternoon might work better for some. Especially if you work with companies overseas as the time difference will mean you get more time together at a computer.

Summer events

Treat your staff to a little summer BBQ on a Friday afternoon and invite family members.
