According to a new survey by a FMCG recruiter, New Chapter, how an office looks plays a big part in attracting and retaining staff.
The research focused on three areas: fun activities in the office, such as chill out rooms and games tables, dress code at work and finally the televised screening of sporting or world events.
Adrian Dalby, Managing Director of New Chapter, comments: “The general consensus seems to be that the trend towards a more informal working environment is gaining momentum.”
“Many clients would state that they have ‘fun office environments’ and some of these organisations are widely publicised – they’re also usually on the top companies to work for lists. Organisations like LinkedIn and Innocent have received great publicity for their office environments – they’ve created enviable cultures.”
