Well, a Goldman Sachs landmark study revealed that a significant proportion of our workforce (millennials) value this. Quite a bit. With millenials
driving business culture, communications, and operations that are actively shaping today's workforce, time to pay closer attention.
In fact, lots of Australian companies
are cozying up their interiors in an effort to both lure and retain highly skilled millennial professionals to their shiny fab space.
Accenture, for example, put up a no-tech "Zen room" in its Melbourne offices where tired millennials can sit, meditate, rebalance and disconnect. Google installed sleep pods and fish tank relaxation rooms in their Sydney office, as well as a gaming room, complete with its own Dance Dance Revolution machine!
It's all about providing employees with a positive work environment for them to thrive in. Wellbeing is big business. After all, work-related stress continues to be an issue for Australian workers, with 49 percent
claiming to be stressed and distracted at work.
So what's in a space that will keep millennials happy and productive?
