Building an office to benefit the team.10 minute read
Acting in the interest of employee wellbeing is crucial for developing a healthy and happy team. Workplace design that considers air quality, lighting and interior layout is paramount to job satisfaction and a happy working environment. These are just some of the elements we took into consideration when designing the new Cornerstone HQ. To ensure the new office suits the Cornerstone crew, we opened up a Pinterest board to the whole team to share their ideas, which went on to influence the final design. After all, we want the new building to be a place where everyone feels comfortable, relaxed and productive.
One thing which has been noted by every team member at CS is our current lack of break-out spaces. It’s true, we’ve outgrown our current office and we are all craving some relaxing spaces to eat lunch, socialise with other members of the team and focus on our work when the office is a bit too loud. In turn, having these areas will mean we can spend more time being social together and will allow us to bring back activities such as team lunches which have been lacking of late due to lack of space.rnrnWe’ve all heard the expression ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’ and we know how true this is. Our new Cornerstone desks are wider and deeper and will allow for some more breathing space, personalisation with plants and artwork and will leave the team feeling less cluttered.rnrnIt’s important to work in an environment which suits the team, boosting productivity, happiness and overall wellbeing. We take employee wellbeing at Cornerstone incredibly seriously. At the end of the day, people in the UK typically spend 37.4 hours a week at their job, so we want Cornerstone to be a genuinely enjoyable place to be. Our new office will be a place the team come to where they can socialise, feel comfortable and keep producing the exceptional work that we’re known for.
