Office furniture ( is just as important as office
equipment although it is not always something people think about improving.

As an organisation, you probably replaced your office copier because it
was outdated, switched to faster broadband to improve your office

      bookshelves, cabinets and files scattered everywhere.

    - Implement 'green' practices. Yes, introducing environmentally friendly
      practices such as recycling old documents and paper, and avoiding
      unnecessary printing will certainly help get rid of all that paperwork
      you might have lying around your office. It will also make you and your
      employees feel good.

    - If your organisation has employees who work out of office/from home on
      a regular basis consider introducing a hot desk option, rather than
      giving each employee their own work space if they are not going to be
      using it on a regular basis.
