Demands For New Office Trends!
Employees seem to be getting a little pushy nowadays (we’re sure you can tell). They don’t want to settle for conventional offices anymore. They want all the glitter and the glamour of modern day offices. Right now they want things like floor-to-ceiling windows and rooftop views. Soon they’ll probably want robots serving them lunch and a live band to play for them on demand, every time they take a 10 minute break. We think employees just want to enjoy their working life.
Studies show that many workers aren’t happy with many of the features in their workplace. 40 % of workers say they aren’t pleased with how their office looks. 21% say they think that their office furnishings look like they’re still stuck in the 80’s. 30% of employees complained that there wasn’t enough space to eat in the lunchroom. So what do these employees really want? They want a more modern trend-following office environment. They want things like:
- Plenty garden space for outdoor meetings or lunches
- Bowls of free fruit at desks
- Upbeat music played throughout the day
- A gym at work
- Touch screen electronics
- Floor to ceiling windows
- Beautiful rooftop views
- “Deodorant and toiletries in the bathroom as well as hair straighteners”
- Canteen or cafeteria in which the food is fresh and different every day
- Parking spots for everyone
