NNG Wins The 2012 Office of The Year Award
Known as the developer of iGO Navigation, the new Headquarters building of NNG LLC won the 2012 Office of The Year title, handed over at the award ceremony organized by iroda.hu yesterday.
Having strengthened its key position in the navigation sector over the last decade, NNG moved into a new office building, which offers its 400 staff members an inspiring working environment in Óbuda, in October 2012.
Budapest, Hungary - Boasting with an increasing market share globally, NNG outgrew its former offices and moved into a new building in district III of Budapest at the end of last year. Designed in collaboration with several staff members, the new headquarters, made up of two four-storey buildings, provide the best programmers and developers in the country with the best possible working environment to offer optimal solutions, both functionally and ergonomically. The imposing central building successfully serves its dual role: being suitable for welcoming top managers from international automotive manufacturers, and offering a livable and friendly place of work.
The 2012 Office of The Year competition counted 22 entries. Based on the audience vote, NNG’s office building took the first place, and the company had similar success at the inspection carried out by a professional jury. Before granting the award, the jury evaluated ergonomics, space management, design and creative ideas in the offices.
“There is a strong competition in the market for the best programmer experts, so we focus on providing our current and future staff with optimal circumstances in order to ensure an inspiring working environment. Featuring several ideas shared by a group of staff members in the design and planning phase, this building undeniably belongs to us”, says Péter Balogh, CEO at NNG LLC.
A sense of comfort and services providing physical recreation opportunities are especially important to people who spend the majority of their working hours in a sitting position. For this purpose, NNG’s 6,300 m2 office building is equipped with the most comfortable office chairs and desks and well-designed working stations to lighten the load on the staff as much as possible. Those longing for a couple of relaxing moments can have a rest in the “zero gravity” massage chairs. Others, who are keen on active forms of recreation, can recharge their batteries in the game room. The company encourages its staff to cycle to work: the bicycle shed in the garage is completed with a service corner, a comfortable changing room and a shower room.
NNG’s staff spend a remarkable part of their working hours in meetings and brainstorming sessions. For this reason, in the design phase, NNG paid special attention to creating inspiring community areas, homely break-outs, a spacious dining room and a large conference room. The interior design made by MádiLáncos Studio faithfully reflects NNG’s brand image:the indoor navigation system features a set of advanced POI icons and the characteristic orange line,which are distinctly familiar to the users of the company’s navigation solutions.
