How to Lure Your Staff Back to the Workplace

The days at home in socks and pyjamas with a laptop and a cocktail have been fun, but many business owners are eager to bring their staff together at the office once again. Maybe it’s to build a sense of teamwork, or maybe remote work has affected the productivity in your company. Maybe you just miss sharing gossip with Jan at the water cooler.

Whatever your reasons may be, we understand that enticing your staff to return from home-based remote work to an in-office jig can be tricky. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to make the transition more exciting and pleasant for your staff! Here are 15 things we think will sweeten the deal.\


15 Ways to Get Your Staff Back to the Office

1. Flexible Workspaces: The Best of Both Worlds

Embrace the hybrid model by offering flexible workspaces. Create zones for collaboration, quiet areas for focused work, and lounges for relaxation. This approach acknowledges the comforts of home your team has gotten used to, while providing the professional and social benefits of an office environment.

2. Tech-Forward Environment: Embracing Modernity

Invest in technology that enhances productivity and collaboration. This can range from high-speed internet to cutting-edge software, and smart office gadgets. A tech-forward environment not only streamlines work processes but also demonstrates your commitment to staying ahead in a digitally evolving world.

3. Hydration Stations: Water on Demand with Crystella’s Touch

Transform your office into a hydration haven with Crystella’s sleek water taps. Offering both still and sparkling water options, these stations become more than just a place to quench thirst; they’re a hub for casual catchups and a symbol of your commitment to your team’s health and wellbeing. Say goodbye to the old, clunky bottled water coolers and hello to our sleek taps.

4. Regular Team Events: More than Just Meetings

Schedule regular team events that aren’t just meetings. Think along the lines of team lunches, themed Fridays, or after-work socials. These events can help reignite the team spirit and camaraderie that is often missing in remote setups.

5. Wellness Programs: Prioritise Your Team’s Health

Implement wellness programs that show you care about your employees’ mental and physical health. Yoga sessions, meditation breaks, or even inviting guest speakers on health and wellness can create a supportive and nurturing work environment.

6. Professional Development Opportunities

Offer in-office professional development workshops or guest speaker events. This could range from industry-specific seminars to general skill-building workshops like public speaking, time management, or even creative thinking.

7. Eco-Friendly Vibes: Reduce Plastic Waste & Recylinder

Show your team that you’re serious about sustainability. Crystella’s Recylinder program, which focuses on recycling CO2 cylinders, reflects a workplace that’s environmentally conscious and forward-thinking. This initiative not only adds a green aspect to your office, but also aligns with the values of a modern workforce.

Crystella offers truly eco-friendly solutions, removing the need for plastic bottles and thereby reducing the plastic waste burden on the environment. Aside from water bottles, it can also greatly improve your carbon footprint through an environmentally friendly supply chain, making it the perfect solution for a sustainability-driven workplace.

8. Enhanced Office Amenities

Upgrade your office with amenities that make daily life easier and more enjoyable. Think of a well-stocked pantry, a cozy coffee corner, or even a game room. Small perks can make a big difference in how your staff view office life.

9. Add a Twist to Your Office Upgrade

Complement your office upgrade with Crystella’s premium water solutions. Adding a sophisticated water tap system elevates the everyday experience, turning a simple hydration break into a moment of luxury and relaxation. Instead of boring tap water, your staff can enjoy an endless supply of refreshing and bubbly cold water breaks.

10. Childcare Support

For staff with children, balancing work and family life can be challenging. Offering childcare support or services can be a huge relief and a strong incentive for them to come back to the office.

11. Commute Assistance

Make the journey to work less daunting. Whether it’s through subsidising public transport, arranging a company shuttle, or even providing parking benefits, easing the commute can be a major plus for employees.

12. Redefine the Workday: Flex-Hours and Breaks

Introduce flexible hours or extended breaks. Allowing your staff to start their day earlier or later, or giving them longer lunch breaks, can help them manage personal responsibilities more effectively.

13. Office Redesign: A Fresh, Inspiring Environment

Give your office a makeover. A fresh, modern, and inspiring environment can do wonders. Consider ergonomic furniture, vibrant art pieces, or even a layout that encourages movement and interaction.

14. Communication and Feedback Channels

Establish open channels for communication and feedback. Encourage your team to share their ideas and concerns about the office environment. This inclusion can make them feel valued and more invested in the office culture.

15. Health and Wellness Centred Around Hydration

Promote a culture of wellness by highlighting the health benefits of drinking water with Crystella’s water systems. Encourage your team to stay hydrated with clean, crisp water, an essential step in maintaining overall health and boosting energy levels throughout the workday.
