How does your space drive productivity, collaboration and connectivity?

Because this space is so open and there are many different sitting areas, employees can connect in many different ways. From having a conference room for meetings and unassigned work stations, to casual lounge seating around the kitchen and bar, the space provides employees to get their work done privately, while also being connected to others. The layout of the space allows for much collaboration and connectivity, and the being on the circle and in a modern space provides great energy for productivity. Snacks help, too!

What is the one thing that is unforgettable when someone walks through your space?

How connected it is to Indianapolis. The space is not only located on the circle (with the monument just outside the window), but artwork of Indianapolis spots are on the wall. We’ve also kept industrial touches to tie to Indy’s growing technology industry, which is big on the industrial, open floor plan.

How does your space tell your company’s story and reflect its brand?

We’ve always called Indianapolis home and are very connected to the community. This space tells that story. We have a painting in the conference room painted by a Herron High School student from the community that includes our five core values. This is a focal point that tells who we are in an image. From a branding perspective, the space shows how we are innovative, creative, and value collaboration and partnership. This is shown through the office not only in the colors, but in the style of the furniture, décor, books, and the building itself.

How does your space engage your employee base?

This space is a place for employees to meet up in a new space. It allows employees to get a change of scenery, to meet up with clients who are downtown, and feel connected to the community. The energy of the space provides a sense of calm to boost productivity, and the collaborate work stations allow for groups to work easy.
