Designed to maximize employee collaboration, the new headquarters features:
-“Work neighborhoods” with open floor plans that give employees the flexibility to pick the environment which best fits their needs any time of day and serve as a home base for departments.
Neighborhoods includes huddle rooms, communal tables, workstations, private phone rooms and personal lockers.
-A 700-person conference center equipped with the latest technology, allowing for connectivity on a global scale.
-A Work Café on the sixth floor is the ultimate collaboration space for employees with stadium seating.
It is designed to represent the colorful tube/tunnels in a PlayPlace, offers a McCafé serving barista style coffee and Canadian pastries, and a tech bar for employees’ technological needs.
-Several outdoor terrace spaces and a ninth-floor fitness center with picturesque views of Chicago.
