Make your workplace visual in 2018 and keep your business objectives moving forward in the right direction.
If you’re wondering what the true benefits of investing in a visual workplace are you’re not alone. We’ve done the research for you and created a list of top ways a visual workplace will benefit your employees.
Our world is increasingly more visual and dependent on effective communication. Studies show 90 percent of the information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visualization works because we respond to and process visual data better than any other type of information.
Investing in a visual workplace is the foundation of any safe and efficient business. Safety posters need to have clear, concise, and effective messages in the workplace. Here are four other ways your business will benefit by ‘getting visual.’
- Improving Company Morale. No one likes a broken record. So don’t sound like one. With a visual workplace, you don’t have to repeatedly tell your employees about instructions or directions. Show them what you’d normally tell them.
- Increase Productivity. The average worker spends 30% of his/her day searching, looking for tools and materials, or wondering what to do next. There is so much time wasted due to lack of order. Increase the productivity in your workplace with motivational messages and smart work practices.
- Enhance safety. Safety-oriented practices include standardized procedures and workflows that reduce the number of injuries in the workplace. Ensure your workers are safe and informed with eye-capturing posters placed in high traffic areas. Remember, too many safety posters placed together could become an eyesore.
- Make Housekeeping Easier. By nature a visual workplace creates organized spaces that make housekeeping an easier task for everyone. When others know safety procedures, smart practices, and corporate information in high traffic industries like hospitality, hotel, food processing facilities, and office work environments, they're safer and more effective.
