Numbers now prove what we have intuitively known all along: the design of your office matters – to the tune of increasing productivity up to 20%*. Whether it’s a larger architectural undertaking or as simple as some new paint and posters, bringing your brand to life in your office space affects how customers and prospects perceive your value, reminds employees to work with intent and can boost your bottom line. To wit, here are two examples of recent work helping our clients translate their brand values into their physical environments.
Walman HQ: Showcasing the Walman Advantage
Walman is the largest independent ophthalmic company is the US, and an impressive example of a successful ESOP. Because they are employee-owned, justifying a sizable spend on an office redesign was no small task. We worked with Walman to prove out the possibilities and the ROI that a remodel could bring to their business. The Walman Advantage is displayed for all to see the minute they cross the lease line, and employees have a renewed enthusiasm for the larger Walman brand purpose.
By opening the staircase and updating the lobby and meeting areas, Walman now looks like the leader that they are.
