If you want to attract a creative team, it’s important to have a workplace that inspires innovation. But what, exactly, does that look like? If your only example is the office with four plain walls and a desk, then it’s time to think beyond your own experience.

The physical environment of a workplace, along with the tools made available to team members, combine to make a space that stimulates creative thinking.

Here’s a checklist to get your started:

____Decor

  • Company mantra, framed and visible to all
  • Motivational quotes
  • Art

____Sound

  • Instrumental music
  • Background music
  • Nature sounds: ocean waves, thunderstorm, babbling brook

____Scents

  • Candles
  • Incense
  • Aromatherapy

____Exercise equipment

  • Stability balls
  • Treadmill
  • Resistance bands

____Food

  • Bento boxes
  • Healthy snacks
  • Tea, coffee, energy drinks, water

____Reading material

  • Research books
  • Art books
  • Magazines

____Games

  • Word games
  • Puzzles
  • Cards
  • Logic puzzles
  • Computer games

____Art supplies

  • Adult coloring books
  • Sketchpads
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils
  • Dry erase paint

Think about what inspires you, and what kind of energy you want to establish. Make the office more than an office—make it a place where creativity can thrive. By investing in your workspace, you’ll not only attract the top people in your field, but you’ll foster an environment where great ideas are born.
