If things haven’t been going too well on the job front recently, the Diary has the perfect explanation.
According to a recent survey by a group of architects calling themselves Gensler, 69% of media and publishing professionals don’t believe their office has been designed to support their job function.
Over a third rate their offices as “poor or very poor”, and, to make matters worse, a quarter of media professionals would be actively embarrassed to show their place of work to their clients.
Apparently most offices do not express the company’s brand values, and this has a huge impact on the way employees live and experience the brand on a daily basis.
Remembering its days at Brooklands Primary School under the tutelage of the lovely Miss Green – who ended up marrying Mr Harper – the Diary recommends that businesses set aside half a day to decorate the office with tissue paper and cardboard to create an underwater grotto motif.
That should do the trick.
