They say it’s not fair to judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to business, employees, visitors, and clients will likely form an impression of an organization based on its location and facilities. In short, an office building can speak volumes about the company inside.
What factors play into an office building’s curb appeal? Looks and accessibility count. The ideal office exterior should be inviting and pleasing to the eye. Its design should align with a company’s cultural values. The location is important as well—a company may opt to be in a central business district or an up-and-coming neighborhood, depending on the customers and talent it hopes to attract.
Partnering with WeWork gives companies unrivaled access to nearly 500 global locations in more than 100 cities; this offers them a wide range of offices in prime neighborhoods that can help attract new talent, engage with potential customers, and network with innovators and partners who can help drive the business.
