Just read an interesting piece here: http://www.humanresourcesonline.net/fuels-facebooks-talent-asia/
From Facebook’s Head of HR in APAC, they’ve named three meeting rooms as follows:
- Be Bold like Ginger.
- Dimmer Than Sugar Cane.
- Wind Blow Water Rise.
“Coined by our local employees from popular Cantonese sayings, these names are intended to be emblematic of their city’s culture and heritage, as with the office decor and furnishings.
Like our offices around the world, the Hong Kong office is designed to reflect our founding ethos and core values of openness, simplicity and cultural connection.
These permeate across all our offices in the region, bringing to life Facebook’s mission to make the world more open and connected.”
Do you have innovative names for your meeting rooms, and if so what effect do they have? Or do you keep it simple e.g. on proximity, such as ‘First Floor Meeting Room?’
