I’m a Gen Y professional in my first job post-education. Lucky for me, I chose an intensely creative field.
But my friends in other industries who also have joined the 40-hour-a-week grind complain that they–Ã¢â€žÂ¢re working in environments with bland colors, bad lighting, and tight quarters.
So, what I suggested during a recent “happy hour design consultation” is that they create a personal connection to the places where they work. It–Ã¢â€žÂ¢s one of the best ways to improve productivity, feel comfortable, and make those long hours of overtime more bearable.
