Back to na­ture as CPP moves cor­po­rate HQ to city cen­tre

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

CREDIT CARD in­sur­ance firm CPP Group has re­lo­cated its cor­po­rate cen­tre, con­sist­ing of around 35 peo­ple, to Leeds.

UK op­er­a­tions and some cor­po­rate func­tions will re­main at the firm’s ex­ist­ing Hol­gate Park site in York.

The new CPP work­place in East Pa­rade, Leeds has been de­signed, built and fit­ted by York­shire-based work­place in­te­rior spe­cial­ists Ben John­son.

Ja­son Walsh, chief ex­ec­u­tive of CPP Group, said: “Mov­ing the group’s cor­po­rate cen­tre to Leeds is an im­por­tant step in our on­go­ing trans­for­ma­tion pro­gramme.

“Be­ing lo­cated in the city cen­tre will give us all the ben­e­fits that Leeds can of­fer, from ex­cel­lent ac­cess to ta­lent in the mar­ket­place to be­ing in the mid­dle of the fastest grow­ing fi­nan­cial ser­vices and tech­nol­ogy cen­tre in the North of Eng­land.”

Emma Dod­s­ley, from Ben John­son In­te­ri­ors, said: “CPP wanted to cre­ate a vi­brant and cre­ative Cor­po­rate Cen­tre where ev­ery­one work­ing there would feel in­spired in in­for­mal and col­lab­o­ra­tive sur­round­ings.

“You en­ter the work­place to be greeted by a re­fresh­ment hub and a ‘liv­ing wall’ moss map of the world show­ing all the CPP lo­ca­tions.

“There are other nat­u­ral el­e­ments in­cluded in this work­place de­sign such as real birch trees, rus­tic wood cladding and a cen­tral curved meet­ing pod.

“Bring­ing el­e­ments of na­ture into of­fices has been proven to be a crucial de­ter­mi­nant of em­ploy­ees’ suc­cess and hap­pi­ness in the work­place and CPP has em­braced this with most at­trac­tive re­sults.

“All the fur­ni­ture is rus­tic with ex­posed welds to com­ple­ment the in­te­rior.”

Jus­tine Shaw , CPP peo­ple and cul­ture di­rec­tor, said: “Our new work­place in East Pa­rade, Leeds, to­tally em­bod­ies the spirit of the new CPP cul­ture.

“Col­lab­o­rat­ing with Ben John­son In­te­ri­ors, we have cre­ated a mod­ern en­vi­ron­ment that re­flects our val­ues through the use of na­ture and de­sign to pro­vide an in­no­va­tive and col­lab­o­ra­tive space.

“The cre­ative el­e­ment sup­ports the well­be­ing of our peo­ple and will en­able them to thrive in vi­brant sur­round­ings.”
