Find the best office amenities to match how your employees work
It may seem like the marketing team works completely differently than the engineering team. Or that salespeople would never understand what HR deals with on a daily basis. While no two employees have the exact same workday, on almost every team in every department across companies, employees tend to navigate the workplace by completing tasks that fall into four main categories: Collaborate, Focus, Recharge, and Move.
Employees need to collaborate with others, focus on their own individual work, recharge their batteries, and move around the office to be productive and complete different tasks throughout the day. Every employee needs to do these four activities on a given day no matter what team they’re on.
Commonly found amenities used for each activity include:
- Collaborate: Innovation hubs, maker spaces, brainstorm areas, huddle zones, stairs
- Focus: Pods, phone booths, quiet cars, libraries, private nooks
- Recharge: Meditation rooms, tech-free zones, outdoor commons, cafes/cafeterias, nap rooms, fitness centers
- Move: Lockers/storage areas, flexible desks, collision areas, touchdown spots
Based on how your employees behave in your office, what type of office amenities do you need more of?
