A creative and well thought out office space can be as inspiring to potential employees as it is to those already working for you and tells them a lot about your business ethos.
In a highly competitive market, where it is hard to source and retain good staff, this really matters. Especially in tech industries, staff are younger, less likely to be open to purely financial incentives, and often with shorter attention spans, hence why big companies are investing millions creating amazing office interiors that frankly make the mind boggle.
As a smaller scale but no less important recruitment tool, going to the trouble of creating a fun break out area for employees to enjoy freely shows that your business has a human side and is not just about sales figures, that it cares about the people who work there, and that your company is fun! Who wouldn’t want to work for that kind of employer? Adding a pool table to your office might just tip the scales in your favour.
