Office of the month: Googleplex, Mountain View, California

The Googleplex is the corporate headquarters complex of Google. What’s not to like about this place!

Staff can move from floor to floor via a slide…there are also poles available, similar to the ones used in fire stations.

Staff can eat and drink from a vast choice of food three times a day for free, pool tables and video games are available in many areas and employees can work out in one of two high current “swim-in-place” pools under the watchful eye of a lifeguard.

For relaxing, employees can chill out in soundproofed stress capsule rooms, get subsidised massages or use the massage chair room with a view of aquariums. On each floor, there are private miniature ski cabins where employees can attend to personal affairs.

They must get some work done as well! To ensure maximum creativity, large white boards are available just about everywhere to capture any ideas that are generated away from the desk.
