For example, Google research team found that there is enough space to facilitate meeting peers in the office and then they recommended lunch tables for employees to meet their peers during mealtime. Not only that, it looks after the physical health and life quality, since googles were gaining weight after long hours of working food choices by color code, green being most healthy while red is the opposite, plus making salad and healthy choice more easily to reach than the unhealthy ones.
When comes to creativity, Google created physical spaces to enable creativity and encourage innovation like Nap pods and using diner booths for brainstorming.
