As competition is higher between companies for top talent it’s important that they stay on the cutting edge of office space design and amenities.  Below are a few office space design trends of 2016 that many companies are having implemented to help them recruit and retain employees and to have office space that is much more efficient:

  1. Open Office Space Concept – Yes regardless of all the debate you hear out there on whether employees like or dislike working in an open office environment more than 3/4 of all companies have shifted to an open office layout so it is here to stay.
  2. Glass Walls and Doors – Glass walls and doors are very popular allowing every employee to feel like they have a windowed office and enjoy the natural light.  It also makes a big office feel like everything is more visible and transparent.
  3. Coffee Bars – The coffee shop concept is very popular allowing more social interaction, free drinks, and a general feeling that you are working at a coffee shop!
  4. Gyms & Lockers – You want your employees to be healthy and fit right?
  5. Meeting Rooms – Fewer offices however more rooms for collaborating and having meetings.
  6. Outdoor Patios – More buildings are creating outdoor patios with WiFi allowing employees to work outside.  Literally bringing the inside of the office…..outside.
  7. Multipurpose Rooms – No more wasted spaces!  Break rooms and other areas are being made into multipurpose rooms.
