A chill room with a games console, mini fitness zone and comfortable places to sit; coffee points, sofas and hot desks – these will all be included in Sii’s new office located in the Maraton office building in Poznań.
“We are planning our very own Silicon Valley here on Królowej Jadwigi Street,” said Natalia Buczel, Branch Director at Sii Poznań. The company has leased over 3,400 sqm of space from Skanska in order to design an office for both its current team and 200 new specialists who will be employed by the end of 2018.
Sii, a leader among providers of IT services and industrial engineering in Poland, is planning to relocate to its new office in January 2017. The recruitment process is already in motion.
While selecting Sii’s workplace arrangement based on different activity zones, Sii is in step with the office market’s newest global trends. Modern companies in Poland also decide more often on an office arrangement with a focus on employee comfort. A good example of this is Colliers’ office or the office of Skanska Property Poland, both located in Warsaw.
“Such flexible workplace arrangements encourage team integration and knowledge exchange as well as the positive impact on employee well-being. We ought to remember that nearly 80 percent of ideas are conceived among colleagues outside of the formal ‘office desk’ environment. This is confirmed by research conducted by The Harvard Business Review, which says that spontaneous meetings on a company premises enhance business effectiveness. Employee productivity is also influenced by the working environment, understood as an office with suitable temperatures, room acoustics and excellent access to natural daylight. Sii’s employees can be sure that their new office will provide such conditions,” explained Ewelina Kałużna, Leasing and Asset Management Director at Skanska Property Poland.
Colliers International supported Sii in the process of searching for new office space.
