John Lechner The Office Art Specialist minimises risk to Professional Services businesses of falling into the trap of poor team culture.
Workplace environment authority John Lechner of The Office Art Specialists reveals how business owners can protect themselves and their team from the detrimental effects of a poor team culture. He recently showed how professional services particularly those in the financial services industry, can improve long term culture, happiness and productivity for teams small and large.
“Let’s face it, in business we all have plenty of challenges and team culture can affect so many areas in a business including customer satisfaction, productivity and profit” says Lechner. “Attracting and keeping the best staff is also paramount to long term success.”
Sir Richard Branson, famed Entrepreneur and author of The Virgin Way, often speaks about the importance of putting your employees ahead of your customers.
“Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.” Branson stated.
Office Art is the perfect catalyst for cultural change in any professional services business. The environment in which we work has both conscious and unconscious effects on our mood and wellbeing. Additionally wall art is a very visual demonstration of your care for your team and the environment in which they work. Decorating your office with art shows you care.
John’s strategies are not just theory, he has been delivering office art solutions to happy business owners intent on providing a great environment for their team.
“Initially, I was not sure I wanted to spend the coin and was unsure what would work with the theme of the office. The artworks resonated with me as it represented freedom, personal independence & quality.
They matched perfectly with my brand. They are unique quality pieces, matching perfectly to our brand & office decor.
In particular I think it is well suited to businesses that pride themselves on being different and of high quality.”

“I am not an art person but when the art was in place I was amazed at the personal feelings the office art resinated with me. They provide me comfort and focus and as an outcome, higher productivity.
The team also have built a sense of pride and ownership in the facility, as we together picked the art and they can see it every day that they had input into the look and feel.
Clients consistantly pass comment and the art opens opportunity for a deeper connection in who we are as a company and also helps them feel supported in that relational aspect of our company.
I recommend that any office with people needs to JUST DO IT!!! and invest in office art.”
