Office stars shine

Events
POLAND The office Oscars have been awarded for the third time! Fifteen winners have been chosen in the Office Superstar 2019 awards held by CBRE and five companies received distinctions for their office arrangements.

The CBRE prizes are awarded not only to those offices that have an interesting original design but also show a holistic approach to employee needs. “The recipe for an excellent interior is simple. An office must meet the needs of its users. These days, the nature of work is much more dynamic than it was a few years ago. There are project consultations, meetings with clients and teleconferences. The offices are full of energy and the space must be suitable for various uses providing space for holding conversations, meetings, creative work and strategy development. Meeting these standards requires a new, ergonomic approach to space so in our competition prizes went to places where as well as traditional desks, you find soundproofed rooms, modern workshops, tables at standing height, cafés, couches, treadmills, gaming rooms and even meditation areas. Moreover functionality shouldn’t be boring. It turns out that the aesthetics and the atmosphere of an office are key factors in attracting and retaining talent. That is why more and more companies are investing in the highest quality of space in the current employee dominated market,” says Natalia Wenzławska, the deputy director of marketing and communications at CBRE.

Best Coworking Office– Spaces

Best Financial Sector Office – TDJ
