A WORKSPACE FIT FOR EMPLOYEE WELLBEING

What do you do when your workspace doesn’t match your mission and capabilities? For Skyward, this issue was a big dilemma. The company wanted its offices to reflect its beliefs and the creativity and passion of its team members. The goal was to construct a modern, comfortable environment—with plenty of natural light—that would not only help inspire current employees, but also attract new ones.

So the company built a brand new HQ building that showcases its amazing people and values. A much larger, brighter building that needed an entire office solution and a lot of new furniture. With Emmons Business Interiors, HON helped plan an open, innovative design that’s completely future-proof.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Skyward’s HQ was years in the making. Throughout the construction process, employees kept a watchful eye on its progress from across the highway. When the new building was complete, leadership wanted to make sure that the interior was just as modern and inspiring as the exterior—and adaptable enough to accommodate inevitable growth and change in the future.

THE SOLUTION

Through the overhaul, HON helped transform Skyward’s new space into something its employees could be proud of. Custom cubicles with lower panel heights ensure easy communication, while tech-ready conference rooms, a colorful cafeteria and plenty of natural light help foster teamwork, productivity and a much-improved work/life balance.

• Sit-to-stand desks encourage activity and increase employee wellbeing.
• Multi-purpose common areas enhance collaboration and maximize space.
• Adjustable furniture rearranges easily for a flexible, future-proof workspace.

THE RESULTS

The new workspace is modern, inviting and adaptable. It’s helped improve communication, collaboration and employee happiness. Team members brainstorm in comfortable common areas. Conference rooms are readily vailable and always connected. Work happens at desks—both sitting and standing. With flexible furnishings and plenty of room to grow, Skyward is set for a successful future.
