The role of the office has significantly evolved over the last few years, and building owners have had to adapt to create spaces that tenants want to work in. Office buildings need to feel just as comfortable as working from home, but offer a sense of community and collaboration that cannot be achieved through remote work. Amenities are key to fostering this unique tenant experience that will draw workers to the office, but must also evolve to address the changing role of the workplace.
Popular pre-pandemic amenities were based on a work hard, play hard dynamic, and included flashy features like video games, pool and ping-pong tables, event spaces with a bar – anything that kept workers in the office outside of working hours. Today, businesses look for amenities that prioritize physical, social and mental wellbeing and enable productivity and collaboration for their employees. The team at HILO has created this resource to share which amenities have become crucial for attracting and retaining tenants today.
