From movies to TV shows, the office tends to get a bad reputation as a boring land depicted of white walls and endless dull cubicles filled with employees who are void of inspiration by the environment they occupy day in and day out. While the reality is, many companies have taken up the charge to transform their office space to be more open and inspiring to allow for better connectivity, engagement and attracting top talent to their organizations.
At PVI, we’ve seen the trend of organizations who want to break out of the dull and boring with their office space design. Trends such as workstations that allow for better connection with co-workers. Open meeting spaces where employees can not only have private meetings but also serve as a multi-purpose space for socialization in the office. Reception areas that are transformed into lounge spaces that function more as a meeting space rather than a holding space for guests.
The importance of office design and office furniture has never been more profound. Organizations realize that the thought and time that is put into office space design and office furniture can pay off in employee engagement, retention and productivity.
A Place to Collaborate
Technology gives our employees the capability to work from anywhere yet employees are still drawn to office spaces where they can interact with fellow employees and engage in collaborative meetings and socialization. With this desire to have spaces to create and collaborate with others, so it’s important that workplaces support these actions. Pictured below are Stealth work tables by Enwork.
Attracting Top Talent
Companies are a melting pot of multiple generations. From baby boomers, Gen X’ers to Generation Z, companies are looking for ways to attract top talent from these generations and to integrate them in their office space. For example, did you know that Millennials and Generation Z look at companies who can integrate technology while balancing a more creative “outdoor” feel to their office space? Prospective employees are always looking at how organizations keep up to date on their office space trends and the environment to which they will be working in day in and out is a considerable factor when prospective employees make their career choice.

When it comes to office furniture and office space design, the modern office space is not boring. Through innovative design and furnishings, your office space can be transformed into a space that will bring together multiple generations and create an environment that allows for better creativity, connectivity and productivity to allow your business to grow.
