A report from Blumberg Capital Partners was recently featured in the Washington Post. Working: Perk Place
What do you consider ideal workplace amenities? An on-site fitness center? A concierge service? How about a grocery delivery service to skip checkout lines?
Those may be great, but many workers focus on their appetites and their automobiles.
A subsidized cafeteria and covered parking were the most desired amenities among those who responded to a Blumberg Office Properties online poll of 500 adults who spend most of their 9 to 5 in one office building. (A fitness center, food delivery and a conference center also made the top five.)
The survey found that responders in their 20s and 30s want the subsidized cafeteria more than older workers do. Those who earn more than 200,000 a year covet covered parking and a company cafe - as well as a fitness center - more than those with lesser salaries. And men, more than women, want on-site conveniences - barber shops, shoe shines and dry cleaners.
