Art and its effect on productivity in the workplace | Morgan Lovell

www.morganlovell.co.uk [cached]

In this research by Dr Craig Knight at Identity Realisation (IDR), a workplace with art and plants was found to be more productive than one without.
Dr Knight and his team created four different environments: In Dr Knight's research he concludes that not only are more aesthetically considered workspaces more beneficial to employees (and indeed their employers) but spaces where employees are empowered to make their own decisions will promote these more desirable behaviours.

Dr Craig Knight, chartered psychologist and director of Identity Realization (IDR) contends that part of the problem stems from managers not understanding how to measure the impact of creating a more inspiring workplace on productivity. ?The closest they can get is to look at cost-savings,? he says. ?So they would say ?we save £50,000 on rent by squeezing more people into this space'.

Dr Craig Knight, director of Identity Realization says too often open-plan space is installed as a cost- saving measure and/or as a management device for increasing productivity.
Both options show a lack of knowledge, he says. The problem here is that companies don't know how to measure productivity (how do you measure in an HR office for example?) and so they measure cost savings instead, says Knight. "This takes us into the toxic realm of the lean office, which is a scientific busted flush. Yet because lean and other management systems ostensibly save money they flourish. Yet they cost unmeasured millions." According to Knight, these questionable practises require open-plan environments. " It's difficult, for instance, to impose teams and to monitor those teams in cellular space, so we bring down the walls with no usual reason beyond a heuristic one. Why don't we can the bunkum and snake oil and learn to measure productivity? Then we can see how much money can be made and how much happiness engendered." It's a product of over a decade of research that happiness and productivity are joined at the statistical hip and travel in the same direction, says Knight. "So, if a company saves money with its open-plan offices, it needs to calculate how much these savings cost (for instance, I deny you a square metre of workspace saving the company £9,000 per annum, your output falls by £20,000 - or by nothing at all. The saving on its own is a hopelessly misleading statistic). Because if privacy affects performance what kind of a mug denies privacy?" Open-plan offices receive a lot of flack - not all of which is deserved, says Knight. "Open-plan can provide collegiate, sociable and engaging spaces. Sadly it's also the perfect space for specious practices, excessive monitoring and corporate penny pinching." FMs can help considerably depending on the authority they wield, Knight explains. If people feel as though they're in goldfish bowls maybe screens would help, Knight suggests.
