If you’re wondering what is Google Hall, read on. It’s a new workplace design based on years of research from Google. The company enlisted a team of diverse consultants, including a sociologist who researched the ways in which “Generation Z” socializes. The resulting workspace design resembles Lego meets Ikea. Employees can reposition the “Team Pods” within hours.
Google originally opened its first office in a garage in Silicon Valley, but soon expanded to a sprawling campus with open offices, whimsical common spaces, and free food and buses. Today, the company has more than 100,000 employees, all working in the same building. Google Hall is a space for innovation. The innovation center has a variety of programs, including the Google Lab. Its newest initiatives include virtual workspaces for employees and a research center.
