Green walkways, waterfall walls and rooftop gardens adorn this insurance provider’s new LEED Platinum HQ in Schaumburg, IL, opened in October 2016; its democratic design trades hierarchical corner offices for social hubs and cozy enclaves. Busy employees love its fully stocked cafeteria, as well as its 20,000-square-foot fitness center, complete with saunas, mother’s room and juice bar. Everyone at the company recently gained access to flexible work arrangements, which ensure they can adjust their schedules or work anywhere they like; after management announced it was making them more available, the number of people working flexibly here surged 70%.
