“If you lived here, you’d already be home.”
This popular statement is one that many employers will reiterate when trying to steer their company toward the direction of “home-ing from work.” Home-ing from work has multiple definitions, as it’s nearly impossible for every company to combine its working space with each employee’s living environment.
Instead, there are two main approaches to this concept. The first applies to the notion of a live-work-play design. This involves a community of people who live and work in the same neighborhood or complex. The design makes it possible for a person to find everything they need (and want) in one area. The second, and more plausible option, is the introduction of a home-like feel within the working environment. This second notion is where you may hear such buzz words as “resimercial” or “respitality.”
For major companies like Google, the live-work-play concept may be an easier option, as they have the landscape and finances to build a Google neighborhood with housing, a grocery store, and entertainment establishments that allow employees to always be close to home. Smaller startup companies, however, may not have the same luxury assets. Therefore, creating a home-like atmosphere using select corporate furniture will still give you the same home-ing from work effect you crave.
