See McCann’s refurbished Tokyo offices

The large-scale makeover is part of the company’s efforts to become a more attractive place to work.

While McCann Worldgroup is the largest foreign advertising agency in Japan, it has never been known for cutting-edge interior design. The company hopes to change that with an extensive modernization of its offices in Tokyo’s Aoyama district. Charles Cadell, regional president and head of Japan, said the new design aims to make it "easier to work, easier to gather, and easier to communicate" and is embodies the agency's philosophy of combining the "best of East and West".

The result is not bad at all, and the space even bears some resemblance to Line's new offices in Shinjuku: drab grey carpets and typical office furniture have been replaced with wooden floors, mood lighting and indoor trees.   

The upgrade is part of a broader effort by the company to improve its working environment amid an ongoing government push for work style reform in Japan. Other measures that McCann has touted include more flexibility and the option to work remotely.

Note: 'Best spaces to work' merely highlights new and cool workspaces; it should not be interpreted as an endorsement of a company's overall work experience.
