Kenneth Freeman, international technical director at Ambius, said that bosses planning the design of an office need to think about what can be incorporated to help make the environment more attractive, appealing and, as a result, stimulating.
Managers should allow staff to have a family photo, a picture on the wall or a plant near their desk, or let them choose whether they have a phone on the left or right hand side of their desk.
"When you do give people a little bit of control over their space - such as whether they control the lighting or the heating - you seem to get very large rewards," he added.
Companies who make a workplace sterile and lean, as clean as possible and deny people the opportunity to "set up home" at their desk will find that they lose their sense of identity and find it very difficult to express their own identity.
