Offices that Would Inspire You to Work
The big companies that take good care of their employees know that if they want to get better and quality work from them they have to motivate them. That motivation doesn’t always come with raised salary, but in creative working spaces that would make the employees feel better, inspired and more at home. These buildings show the importance of providing a great working space for your employees and should inspire all businesses to improve the conditions of their building. I’m sure many business owners will be looking at commercial roofing options after seeing some of these. Here are some of the most breathtaking offices.
1 Google, London, UK
The world already knows that this company gives its best to create the best working atmosphere for its employees. It’s no longer a secret that there are well equipped gyms, pools, sport centers, movie theaters, music rooms etc. in the headquarters of Google. They know that their employees have to stay inspired, focused and relaxed during the working hours and what’s the best way to keep them in that shape but give them everything they need. Theirs best is at their London Office with a ‘Secret Garden’ area on the roof for employees to plant herbs and vegetables, a ‘Granny Flat’ area that has vintage furniture and rocking chairs for your comfort, and lots more. They even have a ‘Google Park’ where you can unwind.
2 Inventionland Design Factory, Pittsburgh, USA
America’s largest invention factory, Inventionland Design Factory, ensures it’s inventors are thrilled with the process of creating new inventions and designs, as opposed to being frustrated by the challenge. It’s fashioned as an amusement park with 16 different themes such as a cave, shipwreck, castle or giant robot. Contributing to a soothing ambiance is the sound of running waterfalls, chirping birds and music. Employees can choose any space to work that suits their disposition. Here, you can let all your childhood fantasies run wild. Who wouldn’t want to work in such office?
3 Facebook, San Francisco, USA
You are using this social network on daily basis, but do you know how their headquarters look like? Facebook gives it’s employees a lot of good space and perks. They have a massive spread of food in their canteen to cater to all tastes. In warm weather, they also use one of the building’s roofs for grillng and musical performances. They have game rooms with Guitar Hero, Chess, Ping Pong tables and more. It’s like a small thriving society all on it’s own. It has everything you’ll ever need and you never need to leave which may sound like the plot to a horror movie but their employees love it
4 Selgas Cano, Madrid, Spain
Being an architectural firm, the Selgas Cano office is a testament to great architecture. What really makes this place amazing is the location, it is situated in the heart of nature. The architectural style, as well, is quite unique and it captures the eye immediately. For architects it is important to be surrounded with inspirational things, and what’s better than the nature itself.
5 Zynga, San Francisco, USA
Do you play Farmville? Or any other of those addicting Facebook games that are time-consuming and keep you up at night? Well, these are their offices where they create all those games. The Zynga office is divided by game, if you work on a particular game then your surroundings are going to look like it too. The company is named after former CEO Mark Pincus’s late American bulldog and true to it’s name or logo rather they have a dedicated grooming area for dogs on their roof. Apparently, at Zynga, not only employees enjoy benefits like healthy, gourmet food, happy hours and free massages but so do their dogs.
6 Hootsuite, Vancouver
Hootsuite is definitely a haven for the employees that work for this social media management company. It’s a workplace and getaway all in one. They have TVs all over displaying something called ‘Hootfeeds’ which are live Twitter streams of any keyword you might like to search. They have a place called the ‘Cabin’ for if you might need to take a nap during work. For those who need a little personal space to get some work done away from everyone else, there are tents. If you feel like you need a workout, they have a gym and yoga studio too and after that if you need a drink there is a beer tap available. It, honestly, doesn’t get cooler than this.
