Designing an Effective and Appealing Workplace

Mainly Success is measured by in terms of statistics, graph and data by either employees or company. However, smart people know that behind it the numbers are real people. Thus to understand the performance of employees in the workplace, one should have to understand the human psychology.  According to experts and survey, not only psychological factors improve employees performance buy physical environment also manipulate the employees to work better.

When we think about the office, we draw a traditional office space in mind, like featuring desks, chairs, computers, furnished rooms, private rooms, and a boss office. These types of workplaces are common in Pakistan having no creativity or alertness. The main objective is how can we create the most effective and appealing workplace?

The major mistake that everyone does is creating a serious professional look. While creating a serious professional look, one can ignore the importance of color. Researches show that colors are linked to different emotions and moods. A lack of colorless surrounding is the main cause of employees’ moods and lack of focus. According to research, the blue color is linked with calmness and composure while yellow color improves concentration. The red color is dangerous, it increases heartache and leads to stress. While green color is pleasing for eyes and has a positive effect on our minds. The reason is green color is the color of nature. That’s why our mind related while watching the nature color again and again. We feel peace.

The next point is the air condition. Poor indoor air quality is the main reason for employee’s sickness. Illness day’s increases and the productivity decreases by the employees. A good ventilation system is needed for the better performance of employees. According to research, the optimum temperature for alertness is 21 degrees Celsius.  You can use a good ventilator system or use plants to improve the air quality. Plants are the natural ventilators. Plants not only improve the air quality but also give a pleasing sight which relaxes the mind and eyes. This leads to an increase in productivity? Natural light is also improving productivity. So it is more beneficial if the office has large windows, lobby, and plants.

Usually, offices are available in commercial areas or building. Renting an office is really expensive and also space is limited. A crowded place can stress the employees. To avoid this one can use screens and glass partitions where privacy is not an issue. Keeping this factor in mind, the use of open floor commercial offices are increasing day by day.

One of the biggest issues in any office is the noise.   Noise distracts the mind. Using Acoustic tiles will reduce the noise level to a minimum. The effective workplace also requires interaction and collaboration. However, it also requires focus and concentration. Keep above factors in find while renovating or designing an office.

Reasons Why You Should Buy a Used Car

According to a survey Pakistani’s spent more than 30-35 lacs on new vehicles. Meanwhile, according to a report, an average used car cost just over 10 lacs. That new car smell sure has expensive air freshener. Apart from this, there are many other reasons to buy a new car. At the same time, it makes sense to buy a used car it will save you from unwanted expenses.  I have compiled 10 reasons to buy a used car.

Save Money

First and the most obvious reason is saving money. You will save lacs by purchasing a used car. If your budget is tight and you can’t buy a new car, you will be able to buy a used car easily within that budget. It helps you to keep your budget maintained. But if you have money, you can use it somewhere else like buying something fancy or investing it somewhere reliable.

According to the survey report, your car cost decreased by 46% within 3 years. It does not matter who many miles you ride it around.

Depreciation

Buying a new car as an investment is a very bad idea. Cars last longer and longer but they still lose their value in a very short period of time.  While there are some models that can handle depreciation better than others. According to a report a car can lose up to 50% of its value within 9 years. So it is not a good idea to buy a new car.

Variety

If you buy a new car, you have a wide range of variety. You can choose according to your taste. According to a survey, every year approximately 300 models are offered on sale. We all have different taste. There are also chances that may be the car we want is not made anymore. But luckily we can find that model from the used car market. For examples, there are not many small pickups made nowadays but you can find a wide range of it from the used car market.

Reliability

Remember the 1970’s vehicles? Those vehicles do not last long as compared to vehicles nowadays. According to a survey a car lifespan changes from 5 years to 11.5 years of age. The auto industry predicts that by 2020, the lifespan of automobiles increases by 15%.

Clearly, Modern vehicles are built to last longer, which means you can save your millions from buying a used car.

Lower Insurance Costs

Your car’s value is the main item that your insurance company considers. If you buy a new car, insurance costs too much but if you buy a used car it will also cost you lower insurance.

Cheaper Registration Fees

Older cars often cost less register fee but it also depends on where you live. There are some states that charged the same fee no matter what kind of car you are registering. But mostly vary their cost based on car’s weight, model, age, power etc. The used car also saved you from paying less tax as the used car price is low.

Final Consideration

Buying a used car is much riskier than buying a new car. Because you don’t know where the car has bee and how it was treated. And also there are no guarantees if a problem arises as compared to a new car.

There is an old saying: You don’t get something for anything? That also applies when you decided to save millions by buying a used car rather than a new car.

The good news is that today’s vehicles are better than ever. They are reliable and most importantly you can check the vehicle history report containing the important details about the car’s past.

Looking for Recommendation?

If you are looking for a car showroom near Islamabad and surrounding, i would like to recommend “The Car Spot” showroom in F-11 Markaz, Islamabad. It is the best showroom in the entire area. The prices of the vehicles are reasonable and the condition of the vehicles is excellent. If you want to define vehicles condition in  numbers, i will give it 9.5 over 10.  You can also find the latest models there. You can also try a demo ride. The car Spot showroom is a brand in that area. I myself bought 2 used cars from there during last 5 years. Both are working completely fine. There is no damage or hardware fault.
