Lead Catering supplies Google’s Joburg office with Staff Canteen
News24 “Google says howzit with its new offices”
By Ferial Haffajee.
Google’s new offices in Bryanston, Joburg, are well, so Google. But I don’t see that at first. The Silicon Valley start-up that has taken over the world has a South African presence in Jozi in an anodyne office park.
I am disappointed – until I get into the interior space.
The company that prides itself on making congenial offices in which to work does not disappoint. There is a games room covered in indoor lawn, a staff canteen serving a range of healthy foods, and boardrooms named after South African colloquialisms. A real barbershop stool fills out a space made to look like an old-style male hairdresser.
A Howzit sign made of wire greets you in the reception area and beautiful beaded art with brilliant Joburg graffiti makes this space speak of Silicon Valley meeting one of Africa’s most vibrant cities. Standing desks, busy geeks and a totally wired environment complete the picture.
