Have you ever seen pictures of really awesome workplaces? Maybe you’ve even been to some. Maybe you even work at one. Whatever the case, we think that working in a unique and updated workspace is really cool, don’t you? Piqued your interest? Thought so! Let’s talk about some really cool ideas for making your commercial real estate Phoenix location one of those cool work places with cool work spaces.
First off, we’ve gotta talk about the benefits of creating a cool work place. You’re probably already a great boss. You have a great product or service. And, you provide a great benefits package. Isn’t that enough? Well, sure…those are all great things. But what would your employees think if you added even one cool amenity to your commercial real estate Phoenix location? Yeah, we know…they’d think it was cool!
So, what could you do to enhance your work space? Here are a few ideas:
- Update your Break Room/Kitchen. Create a theme and a totally cool color scheme to give this office space an updated vibe. You can base the theme on something related to your business or design a look that reflects the desert beauty surrounding Phoenix. Think rugged mountains, saguaro cactus…you get the idea.
- Provide complimentary snacks, beverages, or even meals. This idea can be as simple as offering gourmet coffee from Cartel Coffee Lab or stocking the fridge with bottled fruit smoothies. You could also have Bagel Tuesdays to celebrate that it’s….well, Tuesday! Or, if you really want to go all out, you could hire chefs to come in on occasion and cook omelettes for breakfast or invite a favorite food truck to come by once a week and serve up local fare…on the house, of course.
- Create a peaceful place for employees to chill. Call it a Zen Room or whatever, but how cool would it be to have a place where you can plug in your iPhone, tune into your favorite jam, and zone out for a bit before getting back to that massive project on your desk. Rejuvenating, right?
- Incorporate an exercise area. Depending on your available space, you can do lots of things to help your employees stay healthy. Yeah, you could invest in a couple of treadmills or elliptical machines. That would be cool. But how about a rock wall or a rope-climbing machine? Now you’re talkin’ really cool. If space isn’t an issue, though, you could go crazy and put in a track, a sport court, or a futsal field. Think of all the brainstorming that can take place when co-workers are working out together!
- Install a large screen TV in the conference room. Is 80” too big? (Nah…we don’t think so either!). You can schedule monthly movie nights for your employees and their families. One month can be a date night movie. Another month can be a kids’ favorite. You can have Chick Flick nights and Action/Adventure Nights. Get a popcorn machine and some sodas, and you’ve provided a fun night that everyone can look forward to.
So, you see…there are so many options for making your commercial real estate Phoenix location a really cool place to work. Whatever your imagination and your budget will allow, there are countless possibilities to enhance any office.
