In this interview, Tomi Bamgbelu, Creative Director of Spazio Ideale, speaks to BusinessDay’s Endurance Okafor about the interior design industry, its impact on the future of work, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also advises organizations to be intentional with their office space to improve employee productivity. Excerpt:
What impact does an office environment have on a company’s productivity and effectiveness?
There is a direct and high correlation between productivity and workplace design or environment. Organizations comprise people who work together to achieve the company goals and objectives. Therefore, it stands to reason that their well-being—healthcare and commensurate remuneration, among others—is prioritized to ensure productivity.
