Farmcrowdy has a new office space; it will make you green with envy

The Nigerian agricultural sector is gradually becoming a focal point of discussion as the economy continues to recover from recession.

On today’s edition of Office Tours, we visit the headquarters of Farmcrowdy, a digital agricultural platform that is simplifying the level of involvement of corporate and non-corporate Nigerians in the agricultural sector.

Farmcrowdy matches indigenous farmers with sponsors and at the end of the farm cycle, the proceeds are shared between farmers and sponsors.

So far, Farmcrowdy has sponsored 6,170 farmers with the help of 996 sponsors. The platform has also empowered 3,088 farmers across eight Nigerian states through the company’s outreaches.

Join me as we see the new space where the humans of Farmcrowdy work out of!

On arrival, you are greeted by a map of Africa artwork

The faces on the map are those of farmers, field specialists and individuals impacted by the platform.

We move on to the ‘Engine Room’

The Engine Room is an open space that is void of cubicles or dividers. Every table represents a department.

The empty seats are those of field specialists who are barely in the office. The field specialists engage farmers and help them in various capacities for optimum farm production.

A screen on the wall shows realtime update on milestones reached. The company’s motto is clearly visible on the wall to remind everyone of the collective goal of empowering farmers.

There’s an indoor event space that doubles as an interview area

Private office

Sleeping Pod

Most tech companies are known for long extended work hours. To cater to the need for a nap, there’s a room designated for that purpose.

Meeting Area/Private Workspace

Working in an open space can be distracting sometimes. Employees who require less distraction can use the private workspace.

The Yellow Room

Eating takes place here. There’s an in-house cook that uses a menu created by the staff to provide lunch meals.

Staff Lounge

The staff lounge is a display of Farmcrowdy’s flexible work structure. Employees are encouraged to ‘play hard and also work hard’. Surprisingly the space is a large room with beam bags, a couch, snooker table, console games and everything fun. It’s a relaxation centre or, rather, a cool off zone.

Conference Room

Balcony/Outdoor Events Space

Outdoor company events happens here. Employees who need some fresh air while working with limited level of disturbance can also use this space.

Our tour through Farmcrowdy’s office shows a company culture that embraces openness and a lot of employee interaction. The interior design of the office space is based on inputs from various members of the team. Big thumbs up to Farmcrowdy.
