All work and no play doesn’t make a person happy. We need to balance out these two things to be productive and happy at the same time and a lot of companies around the world are putting a lot of effort into this. Every office needs a space where employees can relax, unwind and have fun. These office playgrounds are what a business needs to truly be successful. Learn from the best but don’t forget to always be creative and original in your ideas.
Google’s office complex in Boston, Massachusetts has this lovely lounge area where employees can relax and interact with each other during their breaks. It has comfortable sofas, armchairs, chic tables from place to place and even a mini golf set. It’s sort of like a living room but at the office.
In fact, every office and headquarter that Google has is designed in a similar way, with layouts and decors that reminds people that it’s important to be happy and to enjoy waking up in the morning to go to work. Their office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for example, has a gaming room with brightly-colored walls, chess pieces on the ceiling and vintage arcade machines.
Of course, an office doesn’t have to be huge to include a lounge space or to have a fun zone. The Presslabs office from Timisoara, Romania mixes work with pleasure in a really cool and seamless way. The attic is this cozy space with floor pillows, a foosball table and a few other things and with skylights and exposed wooden beams that create a bright and warm feel.
Whenever you’re stuck on a task and you feel like you need a break, to unwind and refresh your mind, go play some ping pong with one of your coworkers. It’s what the teams working in the Nanobit offices get to do. Their Zagreb office has an actual ping pong room, with a table, tall décor and everything.
