Due to the growing workforce at their corporate office in Mankato, MN, AgStar Financial Services (now Compeer Financial), one of the nation’s largest farm credit associations, worked with ISG to create an open work environment that fosters collaboration and reflects their vibrant culture.
Atmosphere Commercial Interiors teamed up with ISG to assist in making AgStar’s vision of a collaborative workplace a reality.
AgStar chose a Resilient Real Estate strategy that created smaller workstation footprints for resident employees and touch-down places for traveling employees.
A variety of areas adjacent to the open offices include formal and informal meeting spaces that utilize wireless technology, giving employees the connections they need wherever they are in the building.
AgStar’s commitment to employee wellness is reflected in the generous access to daylight and workstations that offer height adjustable surfaces, offering the choice of sitting or standing throughout the day.
Engaged employees have the flexibility to choose where they want to work based on the task at hand, including access to visual and acoustic privacy when needed. AgStar’s design team understood that need and provided small phone rooms and intimate meeting spaces with superior acoustics near the open office settings.
