When I prepared to leave my last job in search of my next professional opportunity, I did so feeling a little spoiled. The company I worked for had a great work-from-anywhere policy, an orange-themed, open concept workspace, Nerf guns everywhere, and the awesome perk of bringing our dogs to work with us whenever we wanted. Being in that environment definitely made me feel motivated, and it was a visually stimulating place in which to do work.
My fear was that I wouldn’t find a work environment in my next job that could compete with the precedent set; one that would inspire me. White walls weren’t going to cut it when the only job I’d known had such a great office space. That’s why, when I walked into my final job interview at Emarsys, I felt relieved. More than relieved, I felt excited and inspired. The work was exactly what I wanted to do, and being able to do it in such a visually appealing environment was just a sweet, sweet bonus.
Having only been in my role since July, I’m still one of the newbies around here, learning what’s been going on and figuring out how to implement strategy and do my best work. All of this considered, I can’t say I was shocked when informed that our North America office was being featured by Spaces. Duh. No-brainer.
The goal of this showcase is to highlight workspaces around Indiana, with a focus on functionality, design, branding, and the culture of local businesses and their offices.
If you haven’t had a chance to head over to our Spaces page, allow me to do some of the heavy lifting for you by sharing some of our responses to Spaces’ Q&A that highlight just how unique and inviting our North American headquarters really are.
Q: WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT IS UNFORGETTABLE WHEN SOMEONE WALKS THROUGH YOUR SPACE?
A: When someone walks through our space, they directly feel the energy of our company, and the excitement that lives in the air. They first connect with our Welcome Wall, which greets them with a personalized message and a chalk drawing.
Q: HOW DOES YOUR SPACE TELL YOUR COMPANY’S STORY AND REFLECT ITS BRAND?
A: The locality is highlighted by celebrating its proximity to Monument Circle through expansive views and focal points. While the global brand is expressed uniquely through custom-designed glazing film, dynamic wall graphics, and the fabrics chosen for the furniture that accent our space.
That being said, I can’t give it all away! After you finish reading this blog, go give Spaces some love and read the rest of our Q&A.
Now, to the good stuff. Below, find some of the awesome places in our office that most inspire us…
The results are in…
As is true of all competitions, it had to come to a conclusion, and a winner has been named…
Unfortunately, we were not named as the official winners (whomp, whomp), but as clichéd as this will probably sound… we feel like winners anyway. I mean, have you seen our office?
Regardless of the outcome, we appreciate Spaces Indiana for featuring our US headquarters, as we know we were in great company. Thank you to them and the judges, and a huge congrats to the winners!
