What Makes an Office a Home?
You can have the most beautiful house in the neighborhood, but that doesn’t make it a home. In the same sense, you can have the biggest office building with lavish furnishings in the swankiest part of town, but that doesn’t make it successful. This has all fallen into perspective as I think about our recent win at the Chicago Creative Space Awards.
In a sea of amazing creative and innovative Chicago companies, somehow an insurance brokerage pulls off a win. Sounds farfetched, right? I agree. But, I think where we’ve really succeeded is in making our employees feel like our office is their home away from home.
After all when you really think about it, what really makes a house a home?
- The people that I live in it with
- The fun memories that have been made there
- The challenges that have been conquered there
These same three things are what have transformed a bunch of walls and a roof into a place filled with happiness. They are what have transformed Assurance from a trend setting empty office space to a space filled with hundreds of employees excited to be there every day. What it’s really about is finding the right people, having tons of fun with them and working together to achieve our goals. This is what makes an office a home, our business successful and continues to drive our growth.
I’ll let you be the judge. Check out my Chicago home away from home in our award winning Chicago Creative Space video.
