3 Manchester Businesses With Amazing Offices
Social media management for Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Instagram.
The Manchester skyline is filled with office blocks, but within these cold exteriors are some quite incredible office designs. Manchester businesses are well-known for their edgy workspaces, especially when it comes to digital agencies. From open play layouts to break-out rooms and pool tables, employers know that rewarding their staff with comfortable working environments will result in better focus and a higher wellbeing.
We’ve listed three Manchester businesses who have amazing offices. We left ourselves out of this one, but you can check out our awesome HQ here.
Okay, so we take our hats off to rentalcars.com, who might well have the coolest office in the city. Their Fountain Street office cost a hefty £2.7 million, but the results are incredible. Their 38,000 square foot office sprawls across multiple floors, which each floor designed to its own unique theme. The automative themes include road trip, world cars, drive-in movies and metropolis. The top floor even has a beach, complete with beach huts, swings, a pool table and a Starbucks bar. Pretty amazing, right?
Female fashion brand Missguided enjoys a Salford Quays location for its head office, and if you’ve ever driven past, you’ll know it’s something special. The edgy workspace features swinging seats, floating meeting rooms, palm trees, selfie tunnels and even a real Chinese Blossom tree. How their workers actually get stuff done and don’t spend all day taking photos for their Instagram, we don’t know. They’ve even got a Kettlebell Kitchen inside, so that the staff can enjoy protein-filled, healthy lunches. Gains!
3. BBC North
As you’d expect, the BBC North building at MediaCityUK has a pretty incredible design to it. The workplace acts like more of a thriving urban neighbourhood rather than a desk-centric office block, offering plenty of choice for workers wanting to set up camp wherever they please. The most visually striking feature of the office is the atrium meeting pods, which infuse splashes of colour and utilise the dead space at the end of the atrium. We’re sure the BBC North workers are a happy bunch!
