In 2018 there has been a noticeable increase in people that work remotely. Recent surveys show 70% of people around the globe work remotely at least once a week. However, not all business owners are in favor of this trend. Big companies like IBM and Domino’s Pizza see a great deal of benefit in having their employees come into the office.
The problem is most employees don’t really like their workplace environment. Studies show some employees don’t feel comfortable inviting colleagues or, in some cases, their own clients to their office. Making sure you create a safe, clean and comfortable environment for employees is necessary, but if you really want them to be engaged and proud of their workplace we recommend paying attention to the details.
The sign experts at Signs By Tomorrow Portland have helped many business owners improve the overall look and feel of their office. When it comes to business signs there are many different options out there. Based on your needs and budget our experts can help you determine what the best solutions are to capture your business’s personality.
We’ve put together this list of 10 creative ideas to help improve your company’s space with interior office signs.
1. Lobby signs: As soon as customers and employees enter your office, they should be welcomed with your brand's name and logo. This helps build recognition, trust, and brand awareness.
