What does it mean to the business to now have this new headquarters?

Michael Schwab: This is transformational. The best analogy came from one of our employee co-owners who said to me, ‘I feel like I have the same responsibility, the same job, the same daily routine but I am working for a brand-new innovative company.’ The only thing you can attribute that to is the fact that we are in a brand-new building and we have been able to realign the workspaces in a way that gives people the freedom and flexibility to be more collaborative and innovative in how they accomplish their responsibilities.

We have seen that already literally, even though we have only been in the building for three weeks. We have had to tell people, literally, ‘It is time to go home.’ They just love being here so much with the natural light and greenspace. They find this a very welcoming environment. They are very comfortable spending as much time as they need to here.

In our old property, though it served us well for 67 years, the opportunity to create that environment—based on just the age of the building—was just not available to us. The fact that we were able to start the design with the end result in mind was a huge game-changer for us.
