15 of the Most Unusual Office Gimmicks – More and more companies are beginning to realise that in order to help creativity, offices sometimes need to have something that’s a bit different. It’s believed now that non-conventional thinking is boosted if people are in a non-conventional environment. Hence why companies nowadays are trying to incorporate items such as slides, arguing that this will increase creativity. Not only is this important from a productivity perspective, but also the business will look more attractive to the best possible candidates if the office is a bit more ‘fun’.
Our latest info-graphic explores companies around the world who have incorporated gimmicks into their offices to appeal to potential young professionals, as well as to appear less conventional. For example, Man Bites Dog in Brighton has beach huts where their meetings take place, while Missing Link in Johannesburg has a fireman’s pole and a shooting range in order to boost creativity.
