10 of the UK’s most unique offices
For many, the office is like a second home - people spend more time at work than anywhere else during daylight hours. Thankfully, offices aren’t the soulless, beige capsules they were 10 years ago. Office space providers are striving to make their spaces as inviting, creative and exciting as possible.
Employers are recognising the need to inhabit these working environments in order to secure the very best talent for their business. For potential employees, where you work is becoming just as important as what you’ll be doing there.
