As a CIO, you want to create the most inviting office environment that you can, right? So perhaps you've arranged for fresh fruit, juices and other snacks in the kitchenette, along with stylish collaborative areas and maybe a Foosball table? That's all well and fine. But, in comparison to these 10 incredibly cool workspaces, it would be considered, well, just a start. For certain, these creative efforts take employee engagement to the next level. They were recently compiled in a report from Glassdoor and, as you may predict, a number of them were implemented by tech companies. In seeking to boost the fun factor, the companies have installed an indoor campground, video game accommodations and even a bar. (Somehow, you just knew beer would enter the equation here, didn't you?) And, yes, at one highlighted workspace, you can even claim your own personal robot. Glassdoor compiled its list of "10 Cool Office Spaces" through photos and summaries provided to the site by employees of the featured companies.
