You’re zipping to a plush break room on your Razr scooter, where a gourmet cup of java and sleep pods await you, or, (if you’re very lucky) tapping the keys of your laptop while crashing waves lap at your toes…
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? However, for the majority of people, the concept of an office space is pretty standard (read: no frills, much less tropical breeze).
We may sit at a desk, or worse, occupy a single plot of a larger cube farm. Maybe if we’re lucky, we catch a glimpse of life outside. Our supervisors and bosses expect us to be our most productive selves and while they mean well, the status quo of today’s ambient workspace is hardly conducive to creativity. Not to mention harsh, circadian-maddening fluorescent light isn’t doing us any favors.
Our surroundings influence our mood, creativity, and performance. So what if we transformed aspects we could control within our work environment – how might that impact our processes, our efficiency?
