The interior design of the office is carefully curated around several fundamental themes that hold immense significance for this FMCG giant:

  • Social and Environmental Responsibility: This theme underscores a strong commitment to sustainability, with a conscientious utilization of repurposed fixtures, finishes, and furniture. A substantial portion of fit-out products is locally sourced, thereby reducing the carbon footprint. The workspace is also infused with numerous solutions that prioritize employee well-being.
  • Brand Identity: The office exudes a consistent and resonant brand identity, with interior design elements that seamlessly weave in proprietary storytelling. These features not only appeal to younger generations but also effectively transform the workspace into a potent tool for talent attraction and recruitment.
  • Championing DEI Values: The workspace pays tribute to PepsiCo’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) values. It incorporates practical measures, such as braille in signage and wayfinding for the visually impaired, wheelchair-accessible spaces, and a diverse range of settings.

The overarching “Instagrammable Office” theme serves to create a truly unique experience for all occupants, with a particular focus on captivating younger generations, who constitute over 60% of the GBS workforce. This workspace is thoughtfully designed to foster collaboration, with strategic space planning and a diverse array of settings that cater to various modes of teamwork. Simultaneously, it offers a homely sense of comfort and privacy, ensuring ample spaces that support focused and confidential work.

At the heart of the design philosophy is employee well-being. Workspaces are meticulously arranged to maximize access to natural sunlight, promoting a healthy and vibrant atmosphere. Abundant greenery and serene breakout spaces encourage digital detox moments within an otherwise tech-rich environment.

The internal staircase, seamlessly connecting three floors, establishes a work ecosystem that encourages serendipitous connections. It offers employees the flexibility to find privacy and individual comfort when required, striking a balance between open collaboration and personal space.

In essence, the PepsiCo Cracow office serves as an inspirational and nurturing work environment, dedicated to the well-being and growth of the entire PepsiCo community.
