Cubicles and cabins in a corporate environment are rapidly undergoing a metamorphosis, turning into informal, people-friendly creative workplaces where employees are often, well, pampered. A more evolved concept in the West, the idea of a communicative, well-designed office culture is finally making its way to this side of the globe. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook have, over the years, replaced uptight office spaces with plush, colourful, thoughtfully designed interiors. No wonder then, that Google has topped India’s Best Companies to Work for (2016) study by Great Place to Work, and Microsoft features in the top 25. Offices have become a venue for personal expression, rather than their erstwhile purely functional role.

E-commerce players are also establishing their swanky pads in metros with trendy and functional break out areas and cafés, which double up as meeting spaces and promote dialogues between employees. So whether it’s a massage room or a sleeping pod, a seesaw workstation or quirky conference rooms, offices have it all!
Chandni Mathur of BrandWagon curates a list of six offices that have a high creative quotient.
