Understanding the Why.

The insurance industry has a long history, yet changes in technology have resulted in a massive transformation in a short period of time. Since its beginnings more than 50 years ago, MJ Insurance has evolved, too. By making a strategic decision to move to a new office, MJ created an environment consistent with their updated value proposition and refreshed brand.

Discovering what works

MJ engaged DORIS Research to gain clarity around how they wanted to work and involved OfficeWorks early on in the design process.

“Our early participation allowed us to grasp the ‘why,’ understand the findings from DORIS, and work closely with CSO Architects to come up with the right solutions,” said Camille Inchauste, OfficeWorks’ account executive. “It was a cohesive group effort.”

Delivering an employee experience

The resulting space creates a new image for MJ and an improved environment for its team members.

“With our number one goal being retention and talent acquisition, we’re getting a tremendous response from both employees who want to spend time in the office and from the talent pool that comes in and says, ‘this doesn’t feel like an insurance company,’” Jon said. “That’s precisely the response we wanted to get.”

According to Ryan, “Collaboration has drastically increased based on what each business unit chose, and more relationships are being developed among the different units.”
