It wouldn’t be a great leap of imagination to think that the Lego Head Offices in Denmark look like the Lego house James May built.

But they’re a lot cooler, and a lot more comfortable. True to Danish simplicity and elegance that is the hallmark of Lego itself, the offices are large and open with primary colours splashed about to add interest.

Lego is derived from Danish ‘leg godt’ which means ‘to play’. The office space reflects this with open plan design, communal meeting spaces, and all kinds of Lego memorabilia displayed.

Creating the perfect office environment is a major challenge for new and experienced entrepreneurs alike. Your workplace environment affects the morale of every member of your team, including you, and is responsible for forming that important first impression of every prospective client who walks in the door.

But rather than sit and speculate about how to make your office better, why not look to some great examples of companies that have already mastered it?

Key principles

Throughout the following examples, you’ll see the following principles in action:

  • Adherence to brand values and personality. First, every office seems to “fit” with the overall culture and personality of the brand offering it. This provides the groundwork for better team cohesion and establishes a more powerful identity for the company.
  • Sensory experiences. There are interesting sights, sounds and even pleasant smells, making each office seem both unique and welcoming. Small environmental changes here can make a big difference.
  • Comfort and convenience. Finally, most of these office designs aim to make life more comfortable and convenient for these businesses’ employees. Comfort and convenience lead to higher employee retention and better on-the-job performance.

Now let’s dig into six companies whose offices make work more appealing to everyone involved:

  1. Google
  2. Carbon Black
  3. Nokia
  4. HomeAdvisor
  5. Moz
  6. Domino’s Pizza

While the culture that works for one company might not work for another, you can learn a lot from companies who are doing it right, and get started on company culture hacks of your own.
