This is not a coffee shop – this is the reception at one of our clients in Denmark.
They can greet you, get you a visitor’s badge and notify the employee your meeting with. And while you wait for them to come meet you, they can also whip up an excellent cappuccino or a flat white.
Employees can also have informal meetings in the café and buy coffee cheaply using their ID cards or an app on their phones.
I saw something similar at the Coca-Cola HQ in Atlanta.
I like this kind of thing because it breaks down the formality of the reception area and makes it more welcoming and interesting. It gives visitors a better first impression and provides employees with a more relaxed setting.
Does your workplace have something similar?
