Financial Institution Next Generation Workplace
The financial behemoth wanted to shake up the corporate day-in-the-life. This project started way back with research and analytics to understand talent – how did target talent like to live, work; where was financial talent; how can we build an experience of the workday to attract that talent, then keep them happy and healthy at work? Physical space was 1/6 of the larger initiative to reconsider schedule, brand strategy, benefits, wellness and eating at work, commuting, and the office itself. The work for us began in how to integrate associates back into the space. A 6-week interactive learning and familiarization program got staff excited and in control of their new workspace. Next step was to make this a global precedent for the firm’s 50k employees with a global guideline. Keep your eyes open for a new way of working in Finance!
Merrimack is a large office campus with beautiful New Hampshire landscape. The building itself has a very deep floor plate, so we had to keep the ceiling active to relieve the distant outdoor sight lines. Things got a fresh update with some texture, color, and Randy’s signature care for lighting!
Fidelity Investor Centers
Fidelity brightened up the investing experience for clients coming into physical investor centers. The project takes a thoughtful approach to customer experience with attention to major life events at the forefront.
Sequoia Capital wanted a new office that combined their legacy with a graciousness that invites founders to come in, be themselves, and partner with the Sequoia team to incubate impactful companies. At Gensler, design work included concept, brand strategy, and design. Images courtesy of Gensler.
