It may be a strange statement to start a blog post with, “happiness is an office beanbag” but let us be honest, is it possible to sit in a beanbag and not smile?
Office beanbags are being used by businesses all over the world as a way to increase employee satisfaction. Happy employees bring increased productivity, creativity and long term loyalty to your company.
The key is to create a relaxed working atmosphere. Nobody enjoys spending 5 days a week in a dull, stuffy office, where the only thing you long for is 5pm and the chance to escape. Businesses such as Google have long stood by the theory that relaxed, bright environments where you encourage employees to interact will enhance your business. Google is a multi-billion pound company, yet walk around their offices and you will not see expensive sofas everywhere but instead a myriad of brightly coloured and specially designed beanbags for offices, from large beanbags in employees work areas, to large outdoor beanbags in communal areas where people are encouraged to chat and develop ideas together.
But you don’t have to have large offices or areas to be able to re-create the same feeling in your company. rucomfy beanbags recently supplied a number of giant office beanbags to Ignite, and they have created an excellent relaxation area for their employees in just a limited space.
Even with the option of sofas to sit on, it’s the office beanbag which has been chosen by this employee!
There’s something instinctively comforting about a beanbag; perhaps sitting in one takes us back to our childhood, or perhaps we just love how they instantly welcome us and make us feel at ease. Whatever the reason, the simple fact is; everyone loves a beanbag.
