We’ve moved to a new office in Harrogate’s Central House, with the office space designed from scratch, specifically tailored to our needs. As a digital agency, we needed a space that would inspire us and engage our creativity, as well as providing the tranquility for our tech team to be able to crunch the numbers and work on improving the nuts and bolts technical infrastructure of our clients’ websites.
Central house is providing the best of both worlds, with floor to ceiling windows offering great views, a brain gym, walking treadmill work stations, creative breakout areas, ‘silent pods’, which allow people to make phone calls in absolute quiet, client meeting areas, arcade machines, a zen garden, free fruit and free sandwich Friday, as well as a semi-open plan core area for the nearly 100 staff who are located on the premises.
We also have a persona photo wall, which we had a photographer come in and capture all our employees with a symbol of their favourite hobby out of work, to continue the family feeling that we all get from working at WMG. People have been photographed with pets, maps and globes, baking equipment, a vinyl record collection and even a unicycle!
It’s all about the inspirational: combining playful and creative elements while maintaining a collaborative work ethic!
…and Prolific North recently ran ‘Inspired Spaces’, a competition to award exceptional workspaces in the creative sector, which we have been shortlisted for!
