Romanians want offices where they have options for networking and interacting both at work and in their free time, a trend that is increasingly visible around the world, according to a survey commissioned by local developer Genesis Property. 

For 77% of Romanian employees, the ideal office should be located in an area surrounded by green spaces, offering leisure facilities, according to the survey that had a sample of 1,180 internet users. 

At the same time, 38% want flexible areas to interact and engage in networking both during working hours and in their free time. Currently, only 4 in 10 employees have a green space near their office and 3 in 10 employees have access to areas where they can interact and socialise. 

”People's working and living styles have changed over the last two years and have created new expectations regarding the way they carry out their activities. Employees now want more flexibility and work-life balance and value their time off more than ever. A multifunctional hub, with office space and facilities beyond the office, thus becomes the link between the two dimensions, integrating all the activities that matter,” said Maria Tudorică, Comercial Real Estate Manager at Genesis Property.  

Leisure facilities close to the office make an important contribution to work-life balance for over 61% of Genesis Property survey respondents. At the same time, 48% believe they would save a lot of time if they had such facilities close to the office, and more than a third believe they would be able to exercise more and interact more with colleagues and friends. 

Genesis Property is currently developing YUNITY Park, a new real estate concept that will include co-living and co-working spaces as well as ample green areas. The project will be completed in the first quarter of 2023 following an investment of €50 million.
