They’re barely old enough to work but the kids of today are already thinking about life in the office, and they have some pretty lofty ideas…
‘Holiday rooms’ – equipped with an underground beach and swimming pool – Netflix areas, and desks that turn into beds are just some of the things they imagine to be in their future workplace.
These findings came from a workshop commissioned by Norwegian furniture brand HÅG, canvassing a group of teenagers on their ideal office space.
‘We want to be comfortable – to enjoy working and going to work and being healthy,’ said 16-year-old Nezliya Muhara, one of the participants. ‘We want to bring nature into work – have stuff in the office that makes you happy.’
Generation Z also don’t seem to care much for co-working. Instead they want a mixture of isolated work pods and collaborative spaces.
Gyms, a doctor’s surgery and vegetable allotments would be part of the post-millenials’ ‘healthy’ workplace. But the group also wanted Segways to make moving around the space that much easier.
We’re surprised they didn’t opt for hoverboards…
