The office space in Vienna was, until now, seen by our people as functional and plain, a good place to work but nothing inspiring. Thanks to a fantastic redesign, it’s now being described by our people as unique, exciting, modern, fun and energising.
Here at SThree, we understand the impact that engaging workspaces can have on our wellbeing. A survey carried out by the Stress Management Society found that 95% of people believe their work environment is important to their mental health.
With that in mind, we set out to create a workplace that embodied our purpose – bringing skilled people together to build the future – while reflecting the unique personality and character of Vienna, and fostering a real sense of wellbeing in the space. Over the course of six months, the team spoke with our people in Vienna to hear their insights and feedback on the project, and in December 2019 the new space was delivered.
Take a look at how it all came together...
Our people and guests are welcomed into a colourful and energetic reception area with a fresh design that lets everyone know exactly who we are as a business – the number one STEM talent provider.
The theme of STEM continues throughout the office and is complimented by unique designs that show off the character and culture of Vienna.
The reaction from our people has been fantastic. Suraj Thanikkal, Recruitment Consultant, said:
“I love entering our office, because the colours of our entrance are so bright. When I am having a call, I can read ‘bringing skilled people together to build the future’ on the wall behind me. These words remind me of the positive purpose of my work.”
Everyone has their own favourite part of the new office. Tomislav Baric, Senior Recruitment Consultant, said:
“The design in the small meeting room is my highlight – it reflects everything in Vienna on an electrical circuit.”
Jörg Salcher is the Senior Business Manager in Vienna and worked in partnership with the Brand team to create the unique Vienna design.
“Environment really does play a big part in our working lives. We now get to sit in a meeting room surrounded by art – it’s really uplifting and motivating.
It’s fantastic to know that our people here feel they work in a modern, energising space, and also that they can see the vision and culture of SThree reflected in our environment."
