On shifting workplace needs and wants
“The new generation is looking for something different,” said Tunkey.
“We love the flexibility that people are looking for,” added Bonomo. “It gives us a chance to turn what has been traditional office space into something that feels more like a coffee shop or the lobby of a boutique hotel.”
On workplaces role in recruitment
Companies are investing in health and wellness spaces to aid recruitment, ranging everything from bicycle storage rooms and bike repair station, to fitness centers, prayer rooms, yoga studios and sleep spaces. “It’s an investment in people as much as square footage,” commented Tunkey.
