As employment rates continue to RISE, companies are finding it increasingly difficult to attract and retain top talent. One way to build an engaging company culture and attract an elite workforce is by creating the right type of office space and workspace. Here are some tips on how to achieve this:
1 Embrace flexible working: Many employees today prioritize flexibility in their work arrangements. Offering options such as remote work or flexible hours can go a long way in attracting and retaining top talent. Additionally, having a mix of collaborative and private spaces within the office can allow for employees to choose the type of environment that best suits their work style.
2 Prioritize employee wellness: Employees who feel supported and cared for are more likely to be engaged and productive. Consider offering wellness benefits such as gym memberships, healthy snacks, or mental health resources. Additionally, having a space for meditation or yoga can be a great way to promote employee well-being.
3 Create a sense of community: Employees who feel connected to their colleagues and the company are more likely to stay engaged and invested in their work. Encourage social interactions by creating spaces for team lunches or after-work activities. Additionally, consider offering opportunities for employees to give back to the community through volunteer programs.
4 Offer opportunities for growth: Top talent is often looking for opportunities to develop their skills and advance in their careers. Offering training programs, mentorship opportunities, or opportunities to take on new projects can be a great way to keep employees engaged and invested in their work.
5 Design an inspiring workspace: A well-designed office space can inspire creativity and productivity. Consider incorporating natural elements such as plants or natural light, using inspiring colors, or incorporating artwork or murals into the space. Additionally, having comfortable and ergonomic furniture can help employees feel more comfortable and productive throughout the day.
By implementing these strategies, companies can create an office space and workspace that not only attracts top talent but also keeps them engaged and invested in their work. Ultimately, this can lead to a more productive and successful company culture.

PropertyForce’s founder, Oliver Seidler’s successful company of over 200 employees in Fort Lauderdale Dania Beach, where RISE Founder, Keith A. Darby, recently helped broker and secure 20,000 sq. ft. of class ‘A’ office workspace at Cohen Brother’s DCOTA (Design Center of the America’s) just of I-95 and Griffin Rd. in Dania Beach, FL states: “I think the best space incorporates a workspace that people can gather socially and can have their own individual workspaces to work, but also could work collaboratively too in different parts of the space. I think things that are comfortable, also visually appealing are not just internally for the people that work in the company but you can use the space to showcase if you properly decorate it and make it nice to showcase your culture through social media and other things out to the public and then recruit more people, because they see you have a cool workspace.”
