NeoCon 2017 – The Year of the Millennial
This year, one of the most notable themes at NeoCon was a focus on blending home and office in an effort to attract and keep top talent. Lounging furniture, coffee tables, and rocking chairs all bring an element of comfort to today’s workplace. These were among some of the top products showcased at The Mart this month.
The trend in office design is very much about creating a space that feels like home. Not coincidentally, this is also one of the perks Millennials consistently look for when job hunting. They crave creative, inviting spaces – not sterile work environments. Millennials shift the way companies design for the office, but all generations can benefit from this new hybrid version.
Millennials care a lot about health and fitness and drive yet another trend – being active at work. Products like walking desks, adjustable desks, and ergonomic chairs have been around for a few years, but companies are continuing to innovate in the area of active office furniture in Houston. There are a lot of options on the market now to fit any style and budget.
Play At Work
Research shows that having fun at work actually does increase productivity. Millennials have gotten a reputation for having a little too much fun, however. Fortunately, this is simply a stereotype. Designers are creating practical additions to the workplace that encourage employees to blow off steam and relax. Features like living walls bring the outdoors in. Software for active furniture encourages friendly competition between departments. Who can cycle or walk the farthest over the course of a week or month?
