More and more companies are struggling to attract new employees due to the shortage of skilled workers. With the following four measures, companies can effectively increase their attractiveness for recruitment.

The shortage of skilled workers has become much more accentuated in recent months: Both SMEs and large companies are finding it increasingly difficult to find new employees. The workplace requirements of generations Y and Z have also changed. One promising approach to increasing attractiveness as an employer is to adapt the office to the new working world. The following 4 factors should be taken into account:

#1 A central location and good travel connections

Having convenient travel connections to the office is a great benefit for employees. The place of work should be easily reachable by public transport as well as by car. In order to be attractive to the younger generations Gen Y and Gen Z, attention should also be paid to a central location in the city, as they often no longer own a car and prefer to travel in an urban environment.

#2 Happy Food, Happy Mood

Good food puts you in a good mood. Particularly in everyday office life, delicious food is the best way to create a pleasant working atmosphere. A workday that starts with a fresh croissant and a tasty cappuccino from the barista is almost impossible to go wrong. To keep all employees happy, the lunch offering should be varied and include both healthy dishes and soul food. Ideally, the after-work option is also covered – after all, what could be better than finishing off the day with a freshly tapped beer with your work colleagues?

#3 Health & Fitness

Employees’ health awareness has also increased significantly in everyday office life. For example, employees increasingly want height-adjustable desks at their workplace. Another indispensable feature is a fitness room for workouts or a yoga session during lunch break, as well as showers to freshen up after a jogging round. A beautiful terrace that allows meetings to be held in the fresh air can also counteract the stress of everyday working life.

#4 The Office as an Experience

In the age of Instagram & Co., the demands placed on the office in terms of style have grown considerably. A cool interior design is particularly popular with the young Generation Z. Other amenities, such as a foosball table or a gaming room with game consoles, should not be missing, of course, because fun should not be missing out in the office either.
