You’ve probably seen the pictures. There’s a sleeping pod in the corner, positioned near a funky table where smiling workers are collaborating on their latest cutting-edge project. The communal kitchen is in the background and you can just make out a row of gleaming beer taps.

This could be an image from the office of Google, Facebook or any number of tech companies that have created extraordinary spaces for their employees. And there’s no doubt that these remarkable offices are great for creating buzz on the internet.

And, for the incumbent workforce, they see it as a rare moment in time when people’s attitudes and patterns of behaviour are temporarily unlocked, and they capitalise on that moment to reset their culture, processes and behaviours.
