How to choose the right office desks for your business 

If you are planning on several people to work on a desk you might want to consider having an Office Workstations instead of multiple office desk. With the enormous variety of desks, there are to choose from, finding the right one for you and your workplace can be challenging. The desks need to visually suit the environment and design, fit well within the office to optimise space and be ergonomically designed to provide physical comfort for workers. So, how do you choose the “right” one? There are a number of factors that ought to be considered when choosing a new desk: 

  • Desk designWerken offers a variety of desk designs to suit every office need. Whether you’re after a modern L Shape desk for plenty of storage space or a simple, stripped-back panel end office desk that suits all spaces, we’ve got a desk for you. Knowing what design needs you to require from a desk (i.e. storage space, ergonomics, or size) makes it a lot easier to narrow down the options and find the best desk to suit your workspace. 
  • Desk purpose: You might be after an office desk that suits a particular purpose. Maybe it’s a modern reception desk that will be used to greet clients in your waiting room. Or maybe the desk is going to be used by employees who require a great deal of space. In that case, you ought to look for desks with ample workspace, like the Leto Executive Desk. Taking note of the needs of the employee who will be using the desk allows you to make informed choices when deciding on which one to purchase.  
  • Budget: Budget is the least fun part of choosing office furniture, but it plays one of the biggest roles in informing which desks you have the capacity to buy. We’ve taken this into account, and offer a multitude of desks that suit a variety of budgets. If you’re after executive and manager desks, we offer both lavish and high-end desks as well as affordable executive desks.

Office desks for the modern Australian workplace 

 Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all office desks. With the nature of work in Australia rapidly evolving, the office space needs to reflect the unique purpose of the business residing in it. Creating a work environment that reflects the values, processes, and needs of the business are crucial to forming a productive and enjoyable space for employees. The key to this optimal workplace? Choosing the right desks. 


The right desk for the job 

We all know desks are a necessity in every office—your employees need somewhere to work, after all. But not all desks are made equal. Desks come in so many different designs, shapes, colours and costs, that it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect one for your employees. Making sure employees are comfortable and given the best equipment to get their work done not only makes them more productive, but they’ll be happier at work whilst being efficient, too. 

Think about it this way: say your job requires ample desk space and yet you’re only given a small desk to work on. This is likely to create frustration and irritation, and subsequently decrease productivity. That’s an easy problem that could be solved with—you guessed it—a larger desk. This is not to say that you need to provide all employees with large desks. Some jobs do not require much space—a writer, who only needs their desktop computer and a notebook, probably won’t be hindered in their work by using a small(ish) desk.  

So, what does it mean? That desks matter. And not only that but careful planning and consideration around the kinds of desks that your employees need has the capacity to influence employee wellbeing and productivity.
