In a recent survey of Arrowhead, ACM and OnPoint employees, we asked which companies you love and why. As the results rolled in, work environment ranked fourth. When probed more deeply as to what our coworkers mean by work environment, they immediately start talking about Google's campus.
We've all seen the photos from Googleplex, Google's giant three-million-square-foot headquarters in Santa Clara, California. If you haven't, check out these photos posted directly from Googlers (employees.) Or these photos from Zappos employees from their downtown Las Vegas HQ. Zappos offers another look into a whimsical work campus.
While these spaces are cool, setting a precedent for other companies to emulate, we have to remember: not every company has the hundreds of millions of dollars to build indoor ball pits or rock climbing walls.
A few years back, the Arrowhead San Diego office underwent a major renovation. When we surveyed our fellow coworkers, natural lighting was the number one change everyone requested. Since not all of our offices will have the budget to overhaul our spaces to look like Google's main campus, we thought we'd start off small. (Like very small.)
