How to design a personal workstation to improve productivity

We often talk about taking regular breaks, planning our day in advance, or following a precise approach to project management, but we often forget the importance of the workstation. This factor clearly affects productivity.


Setting up your workstation correctly for your needs helps limit distractions, maintain proper posture, and make the day more enjoyable. But where should you start?

1.  Customize your seat correctly

A well-designed office always includes an executive leather office chair. It's up to each employee to set all the parameters as best as possible: the seat and backrest height adjustment, the correct adjustment of the lumbar support or the armrest distance.


The same applies to the computer monitor: it should be positioned between 50 cm and 80 cm away from the user, at an optimal height in relation to each individual.


These small and important details help maintain a correct posture, avoiding physical problems such as back pain and neck pain.

2.  Leave space for movement

Avoid placing drawers, bags or anything else under the desk, so as not to reduce legroom. During the working day it's advisable to change position at least 40 times: this includes getting up to stretch or simply crossing your legs differently.A sit-stand desk is a good solution.

3.  Invest (if possible) in quality headphones

Noise, especially in open spaces, can reduce a person's productivity by up to 66%. If the job allows it, invest in a pair of noise-cancelling headphones: they will allow you to extricate yourself from the external noise when needed.

4.   Set the workstation's light carefully

If the light is too weak it can cause drowsiness, if it's too strong it can cause migraines and eyestrain. In the last case it’s not possible to act directly, except by reporting the problem to the company manager; in the former case, however, the advice is to get a desk lamp, preferably one with a cool light.

5.  Keep your desk tidy and organised 

Get rid of everything you don't need from your desk, especially if it is non-work-related. Rearrange cables, organise documents in a filing unit and try to keep everything tidy throughout the week: you will find everything easily and without distractions!
