Millennials are the hot commodity these days, but what do they want in office space? Scott-Spector, principal of New-York-based architectural firm Spector Group, describes how to appeal to Millennials in workspace design:
- Amenities. And more amenities—Bring on the fully stocked kitchens, the pool tables and the health clubs in the building.
- Collaboration spaces –so they can share ideas and work in flexible group arrangements
- Flexibility—to move desks around, pull up benches, etc.
What NOT to include?
- Private/enclosed spaces
- Poor lighting
- A shortage of free food! (A good salary and an awesome climbing wall are not enough, apparently).
