The results are in!

As an office refurbishment company and supplier of partitions we are often working in offices for one reason or another and we thought we would look into what employees most desire in their office so we could present the results.

We conducted a survey of office workers from several companies and asked them the top 3 cool/fun/useful things they would like to see in their office.

There were some predictable answers and also some really interesting ones:
