Contributing to the development
of a European-led new
wave of workplace innovation
The main goal of Start at Best is to contribute to the development of a
European-led new wave of workplace innovation among SMEs.
Startups initiated a new trend in workplace innovation which can
inspire small companies to adopt a similar innovative attitude.
– THE IDEA BEHIND –
Over the last years, startups were pivotal in changing workplace culture. Until recently, the idea of an office brought up an image of rows of identical desks and uncomfortable chairs. Because working in startups is often quite intense, offices should be comfortable, friendly and flexible for their users. Nowadays, some offices have break rooms, others have game rooms with ping pong tables or consoles. These facilities help employees relax when they need to take a break and be more productive.
