Projecting the Right Image

Provided by SME.com.ph

Image specialists suggest that office furnishings and decorations say much about your company. To convey the kind of image you want, pay attention to these particular areas:

Furniture arrangement. Setting your desk in the middle of the floor with chairs facing it suggests a formal atmosphere and an occupant who wants to maintain distance from visitors. A desk positioned against a wall conveys an image of confidence.

Messy desks. Too much clutter may cause a visitor to think that the office occupant does not care about making a good impression. But an immaculate desk conveys coldness and may be perceived as a sign that the person does not have enough work to do.

Decorations. Plants, curtains and artwork convey a comfortable, relaxed attitude. Books and artwork express sincerity.

Certificates and awards. If they are job related, reassure visitors that you are experienced and competent.
