Bizdom, a startup accelerator, features a foosball table in its Cleveland location so colleagues can mix friendly rivalry with relaxation and interaction. Gathering spaces like this one should be customized to the organization, says Melissa Price, CEO of dPOP!, the design firm that produced Bizdom’s office.
“What are your talking points? What is the culture you have as an organization? Does your space manifest that?” asks Price. “Ask companies who have done renovations like this before. Have them walk your space and give you feedback. Look at it through a job candidate’s eyes, and ask team members who have been in the space for a long time to give you feedback too.”
