In today’s workplaces, many top employers are making it a priority to promote healthy work environments and encourage workers to live healthier lifestyles. And with good reason: they recognize the direct link between healthy, engaged employees and high productivity coupled with lower employee turnover. Event Network, who operates retail stores for cultural attractions across the United States, prides itself in being just such a company, receiving first place awards as Healthiest Employer in 2010 and 2011 by the San Diego Business Journal.
Event Network turned to Carrier Johnson + CULTURE for the renovation of their new corporate headquarters in San Diego. Recently certified as LEED Gold for commercial interiors by the USGBC, the project reflects the talents of design principal Danette Ferretti and her team, who brought Event Network’s vision to life, designing a dynamic space that supports the firm’s thriving, entrepreneurial and innovation-driven culture.
Peek inside the Event Network space and you’ll find such amenities as festive conference and multipurpose rooms, family-style break room, tea room, relaxation room, fitness room with shower & locker facilities along with wellness room. Outside, employees can take a break on the company’s “patio”, an expansive outdoor deck featuring rustic Adirondack seating and BBQ grilling stations. Stunning views of the neighboring canyons and a raised-bed communal vegetable/herb gardens provide even more incentive for employees to enjoy the great outdoors in their own backyard. Overall, the vibrant space promotes connectivity, communication and a healthy lifestyle, which are integral to Event Network’s culture.
