  • The Rise of Rest Spaces: Redefining Office Design for Wellbeing

    Employee wellbeing has become a top priority for businesses worldwide, but how is this reflected in the future of office design? Recent trends and data indicate a growing demand for office amenities that prioritise relaxation and mental health. According to a survey by Future of Work Survey JLL 43% of organisations will accelerate their investment in new or enhanced health & wellbeing amenities for employees. One trend is clear when designing office spaces for wellbeing: the demand for rest spaces (nap pods), is on the rise. Numerous future of work reports are coming up with the same conclusion - the office needs rest spaces. Nearly half of UK workers express a desire for regular naps during their office day, highlighting the growing importance of relaxation and rejuvenation in the workplace. From managed office platform Kitt workplace survey. The most popular office space benefits put rest spaces at number two after garden spaces, followed by games rooms at number 3, gym space and then coffee bars according to Facilities Management Journal Those aged 18-25 named napping pods (23%) as one of their top amenities to make them happy and productive in the workplace, followed by the gym and office pets. This underscores the increasing recognition of the value of rest in the workplace. Research by Workthere Cosmopolitan's Magazines Future of Work Survey summerises that millenials are 'likely to swap a hefty paycheck for nap rooms' How do rest spaces fit into modern offices? An environment tailored for rest With features such as full privacy, darkness, and soundproofing, alongside the option to lie down in a comfortable position, these innovative spaces offer a sanctuary for employees seeking respite from the bustling office environment. Privacy is essential for fostering relaxation and rejuvenation, yet existing beanbag and wellbeing spaces often overlook this critical requirement, leading individuals to resort to using toilet cubicles for rest. Our research indicates that 80% of professional services employees have napped at work within the past year, with toilet cubicles being the number one location. Modular Office Design These rest spaces complement modern office design, particularly in open-plan environments. Similar to office phone booths, these compact spaces can be seamlessly integrated into existing office layouts, providing employees with a dedicated area for relaxation without the need for extensive renovations or dedicated rooms. Inclusive wellbeing centred office design But rest spaces go beyond mere functionality – they embody a wellbeing-centric approach to office design that is increasingly shaping the future of the workplace. These spaces cater to the diverse needs of employees, including new parents, individuals experiencing menopause, neurodiverse colleagues, and those coping with stress, anxiety, jet lag and much more. By offering a workspace to manage stress, anxiety, and overstimulation, nap pods contribute to a more inclusive and supportive workplace culture. Sustainability in office design A fundamental aspect in the future of workspace design is sustainability. Built with sustainability in mind, Rest Spaces are built locally prioritising sustainably sourced materials and designed to be easy to repair with replaceable parts, reducing their environmental footprint and promoting a circular economy. Businesses increasingly prioritising sustainability in their office design, integrating rest spaces into office design aligns with the broader goal of creating environmentally conscious workplaces, and encoraging sustainable working habits, As workplaces strive to create healthier and more productive work environments, nap pods emerge as a valuable asset. By embracing these innovative spaces, companies can foster a culture of wellbeing and productivity, ultimately leading to happier and more engaged employees. Rest spaces represent a paradigm shift in office design, prioritising employee wellbeing, inclusivity, and sustainability. By embracing these innovative spaces, businesses can create healthier, more productive work environments that support the holistic needs of their workforce. As the workplace continues to evolve, rest spaces will undoubtedly play a crucial role in shaping the future of office design. References: Facilities Management Journal. (n.d.).
