Office Lounges That’ll Make You Jealous
Most offices have an employee lounge area where people can eat lunch and relax. In most cases, standard run of the mill office lounges look something like a table, a few chairs and if you’re lucky, a sofa or two. With prospective employees desiring a more robust office culture, amenities in common and shared areas are increasingly becoming an area of importance to companies. Today, many new age companies are acknowledging the importance of creating an attractive and engaging shared lounge space for employees and are designing state of the art facilities in order to retain them. It’s no secret that happy employees produce better quality work, are more loyal to the company and have a higher sense of job satisfaction. Providing these employees with a space they enjoy can help employees recharge and facilitate creative thinking. We dug around the internet and looked into some of the world’s most innovative companies to find which ones had the coolest employee lounge areas. We have to say, we are totally jealous!
Internet company Dreamhost which is located in California designed a space with fun in mind. This lounge features a super modern ping pong table, lots of room to lounge and features giant windows that let in tons of natural light.
At the Facebook headquarters, which is also located in California, employees have access to lots of different amenities like this indoor/ outdoor space. This large open concept space has been partitioned into several micro areas for lounging and features a DJ booth and access to an outdoor area. Awesome!
Google London offices take full advantage of using various textiles to create a cozy yet modern lounge area. There are also diner style private booths for eating and lots of places to just curl up and relax.
Lego Denmark is pretty much everyone’s dream job. The bright colors and this epic tube slide definitely brings out the creativity in the employees.Here’s another epic office but this time, Microsoft used inspiration from Lego to create this gorgeous lounge space at their headquarters. The living wall, geometric shapes and fun colors are totally an eye catcher. Oh yeah, there’s a slide too.
