Office space(s)

This has nothing to do with the movie by the same name (and its a great movie!), but about how IT companies have improved the way offices are perceived in India. Earlier, offices were nothing but cubby holes, dusty tables, creaky furniture and stinking upholstery. Now they are about space.

... Satyam Computer Services, the infrastructure spend per person is about Rs 4.5 lakh.

... upcoming Noida campus would have mini-gyms on each floor, besides a possible jogging path and swimming pool.

There are break out areas, lawns, good cafeterias - the more fortunate ones have gyms, reading rooms and dormitories.

If you as a company dont have a good office, you are gone. Gone from the clients mind, gone from a prospective employee perspective. When you call the employee for an interview, the office environs cannot be a dissatisfier, ditto with the client. After all, everybody around has a good campus.
