When many people consider refreshing their office space, their first thought is cost. But an office refresh can actually save you money over the long-run. In this article, we are going to talk about the hard and soft savings that come with an office refresh.
The term “hard savings” means dollars added directly to a company’s bottom line immediately. Some common examples of hard savings include:
- Reduction in unit cost of operations
- Reduction in unit cost of production
- Reduction in overhead cost
- Reduction in transportation cost
- Increased throughput, resulting in increased sales or revenue
Updating your office space likely won’t directly reduce your cost of operations, production, transportation, or overhead. However, it can have serious soft savings benefits that are more indirect.
When we talk about soft savings, we’re talking about less-tangible savings that still benefit the business, but not as directly as hard savings. Here are some examples of soft savings:
- Increased safety in the workplace
- Increased employee satisfaction
- Increased customer satisfaction
Refreshing your office space can do all of the above – increase workplace safety, employee retention, and customer satisfaction.
