Workspace design has become a powerful tool for modern corporations.
Research shows that workspace design is directly correlated to employee performance, job satisfaction, talent retention and the general wellbeing of employees.
Increasingly, office design has become currency when attracting new talent. Organisations like Google and Apple represent the extreme version of this evolution; their offices include sleeping pods, a wide variety of creative environments, gaming rooms, resident chefs and even a Lego room for some work-play.
Humour, creativity, fun, movement, amenities, quality food, a variety of environments, flexible hours – these are elements for companies to consider in workplace design.
It starts with identifying your goals as a company and what workspace changes will help achieve these.
