How working in an office has got a whole lot cooler
By Katie and Chloe
Working in an office does not need to be boring anymore thanks to two offices in Folkestone. Sleeping Giant Media and the Workshop both offer an unusual place to work either for a fast growing company or as part of a start-up hub for new businesses.
The first place we visited was the workshop, an innovative workspace for businesses seeking flexible accommodation, key advice and support.
Inside, not only are there communal kitchen areas, there is funky seating that resembles the keys on a keyboard and a slide which takes you from one floor to another. The slide which has also been in the national press is also used by staff to transport kitchen supplies like sugar and teabags to the floor below.
The large black building on Tontine Street caters for entrepreneurs and is becoming a hotspot for start-up businesses on the Factory Floor where people also have access to mentors and experts.
Getting more and more popular, even the businesses inside the building are growing; it must be all the energy the save by using the slide!
