Said Anil Mathur, COO, Godrej Interio, “New Delhi is an important market for us for office furniture, and is seeing the entry of leading interior brands of the world. We plan to open more such centers in key cities like Bangalore and Mumbai. While the office furniture category in Delhi contributes to 12% of our overall business revenue; the city contributes `150 crore to the brand’s business growth annually.”
Commented Naresh Tahiliani, VP, Sales at Godrej Interio, “Millennials will represent 50% of the workforce by 2020 and 75% by 2025. They are digital natives and organisations need to connect with this new workforce both physically and digitally. They need to reinvent their business models to make people ‘want’ to come to work, rather than work from home. Also, the market demand for flexible workplace furniture is gathering momentum. With growing industry needs and the change in work culture, customers want to experience an office environment that addresses the latest trends in offices. The experiential centre aims to address these challenges and enable the customer to associate with Godrej Interio in offering complete turnkey solutions under one roof.”
In an effort to sensitise organisations towards the fast-changing expectations of the new age workplace, Godrej Interio along with innovation consultancy idream will be organising a series of workshops titled ‘The present-future of workplaces’ for senior management, HR, Administration and Facilities heads at the Centre.
Parthajeet Sarma, Founder, idream, said, “Space is increasingly being used as a starting point of innovation by forward thinking organizations. Companies that make the shift will be most successful in attracting and retaining talent. Godrej Interio is working with such organizations to create an eco-system which allow people to make this fundamental shift in their quest to remain innovative. The highly interactive workshops will highlight tried and tested techniques to adapt to the fastchanging expectations of the new age workplace.”
