The middle management staff should be stationed in North & East zones. Effort should be made to keep the Centre of the office clean. It can be cordoned off by placing a floral motif on the floor or a piece of art or the image of a deity to keep it tidy and presentable. Southeast is the corner for Fire therefore heating appliances should be kept in this corner. Main Power Switch and Computer servers along with the office pantry should be in the south-east corner.

If you are planning to shift to a new premises then identify a good Vastu location for your office. The energy of the new location should support the growth and financial success of your business. There are several cases where the business has not done well after shifting its premises as the vastu of the new place does not synchronize with the vastu of the older office. Offices should be designed keeping in mind the balance in the movement of work and the hierarchy of authority.


If offices are not made according to these principles, the absence of balance would lead to loss in efficiency, and lack of control in running the organization. Start with noting the directions using a compass from the center of the office, and work out all along the eight directions. From the perspective of selecting land for office Vastu considers South to be the best direction. The ancient texts emphasize on the synergy between South direction and the tenth house of one's horoscope. Hence the managing director, chief executive or the officer in charge in their absence should occupy this direction. For better results they should face the North but if not possible it can be the East.


If the subordinates are placed in the south and the officer in the South East then they would soon witness ego clashes and the subordinate would be in a strong position to disobey his officer. The South East corner is meant for those who are indulged in research or innovative and pragmatic projects. Ideally, laboratories, computers or control panels should be located in this corner. A drawback of this corner is that it brings aggressiveness in the temperament, which is fatal not only for the subordinates but also for the organization.


The public relation officers should avoid sitting in this corner or in the basement or under beams.


Almirahs, cupboards and racks should be placed in the South West and heavy furniture should not be kept in the north or the northeast. His desk should be placed in the Southwest as it helps the office to run smoothly. Underground water tanks should be kept in north-east direction.


The canteen or pantry, however, should be in the south-east direction. The sitting arrangement of the cashier should be aloof from other employees and should not be in the south or south-west as this may make them lethargic and exhausted creating trouble for the employer. The best place for the cashier is north, which is also the abode of Kuber, the God of Wealth.


Employees occupying the west corner of the office are often more talkative and may leak confidential matters, such individuals should always be seated in the West. The conference hall is best suited in the north-west direction as it promises an incessant flow of ideas. The Office desk should be placed in the southwest corner and boss or the head should occupy a seat in this corner. If he has a regular access to the northeast it leads to success, dominance and control on entire premises.


This corner is best suitable for a waiting lounge. Employees with short temper should be allotted the north-east corner. Less talented people should be allotted the west initially and then shifted to the south-east direction. A pro vastu door is a very important factor for the growth of the office, with an overall limitation on the total number of doors. The higher officials should be in the south, those coming next to them in hierarchy in the west and those at the reception or promotional wing should be in the north-east.
