Baird – Chicago
Modernize + refresh office environment to support employee well-being and attract the next generation of talent
Experiencing rapid growth within the company, Baird’s Global Investment Banking group relocated their offices within this downtown high-rise building. Now occupying the 55th through 58th floors — with a secure trading room floor on the 58th floor — the new space allows for additional employees while modernizing their offices to aid in attracting new talent. Workstations are placed around the perimeter and inbound private offices with glass fronts provide increased natural daylight and views of Chicago’s skyline.
With an emphasis on recruiting and retaining new talent, a work café, game lounge, sit-to-stand workstations and team / focus rooms give employees variety in workstyles and flexibility throughout their day. Creating transparency within the office, a central, connecting stair and open huddle areas promote a culture of knowledge-sharing and increased interaction and collaboration. Aligned with Baird’s design standards, a modern and bright aesthetic incorporates prominent branding and features a two-story, commissioned sculpture.
