“Outside home, we spend more time in the office than anywhere else, but we often take our coworkers for granted,” said Blake Zalcberg, president of OFM. “We hope that by snapping an ‘office selfie,’ people will take a minute to appreciate their work family.”
OFM is holding the contest on Instagram and Twitter from April 15-May 31, 2017. To enter, contestants must take a “selfie” on their cellphone in an office setting with their coworkers, then upload the photo to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #OFMOfficeSelfie. Winners will be selected in three categories: best selfie with the most people, most creative and best overall.
Each category winner will have the option of selecting three stools from OFM’s Jupiter, Hex or Quin series, offering a versatile seating option for any workspace. These soft-covered stools boast a contemporary design and can be used as standalone seating or in combination to create longer lines, circular shapes or even more abstract designs.
According to a Pew Research Center estimate, some 55 percent of Millennials (ages 18 to 33) have shared a selfie on social media. Taking a selfie, especially at the office, used to be much harder, but thanks to cellphones readily found in any workplace, it’s become an everyday experience. OFM hopes to capture this phenomenon and find the best group selfie taken in a workplace setting.
“This is just a fun contest to bring together coworkers in the workplace and do what everyone does on a regular basis—take a selfie,” added Zalcberg. “We’re look forward to seeing the fun submissions and what people come up with on their break.”
