Regular readers of the Kingsbridge blog will know that we’ve been making a few changes to our Tewkesbury HQ over the summer. Having outgrown our original office, we took the opportunity to take on the building next door too.
Whilst late spring and early summer was spent working amidst a mass of cables, we’ve been fine tuning from June onwards. Having a bit more space has allowed us to invest in a few nice perks. We thought we’d take you through a few.
Given the amount of time the average office worker spends in meeting rooms, it’s important to invest in the right furniture. There are a number of things to consider in the perfect meeting room chair, for example. Adjustable lumbar support? Essential. Asynchronous mechanisms? A must have. A waterfall seat front? Why not. Fluffiness? Absolutely. We might not have filled the first three boxes, but we ticked off the fourth with aplomb.
Our new meeting rooms feature a welcoming selection of super soft, cream coloured furry chairs. They might not be the most practical but they are supremely comfortable and, most importantly, extremely soft.
We’ve also introduced our own canteen area, with a full breakfast service. Arrivals before 9am are treated to a smorgasbord of options, ranging from Pop Tarts and Cookie Crisp to chia seeds, Icelandic yoghurt, and granola. There are worse ways to start the day.
By getting our staff together in the canteen for breakfast and lunch every day they get time to catch-up that they might not otherwise have at their desks. As we get more settled we’ll be taking a look into themed breakfasts and lunches too.
We’ve included a few pictures of our canteen, breakout areas, and the all-important fluffy chairs below. Make sure to check back in soon for another office update.
