Office amenities are reaching new heights in the Boston Metro, according to a recent article in Boston Bisnow. The reason: office amenities can help attract and retain the best workplace talent!
Boston’s highly-educated workforce includes scores of young adults who look beyond the salary and benefit package of an employer. Millennials and the emerging Generation Z workforce view an office environment as a reflection of company culture. The sight of a maze of cubicles can send prospective hires running.
Tech companies were the first to think out of the cubicle when it came to attracting talent through office amenities. Open-space floor plans with natural light and collaborative work areas were soon complimented by arcades, outdoor yoga areas and on-site coffee bars.
Offices with recreational and social amenities are now present in a variety of industries. The influence of the tech industry continues to raise the bar on office perks, especially when it comes to on-site dining and beverage services. Instead of traditional cafeterias, think upscale food courts with multiple cuisine choices. Coffee bars are being answered with cocktail lounges and pubs.
While urban office buildings can leverage nearby amenities, suburban office campuses are becoming one-stop destinations. Popular on-site amenities include parcel services, fitness centers, convenience stores, financial services and dining options. Suburban corporate centers surrounded by residential neighborhoods are a plus, giving employees housing options close to the office.
