“Because your Employees Matter” is Concentra’s motivation for providing comprehensive healthcare services – urgent care, physical and occupational therapy, and wellness - to America’s workforce. When executive leadership realized the design of the company’s current headquarters was no longer in line with their mission, they approached Page.
Concentra and Page quickly defined an “Out with the Old and In with the New” mentality. Offices, oversized for today’s work styles and located along the perimeter of the floor plate, were reduced in number and made transparent by adding glass, allowing natural light to reach everyone. New workstations were slightly reduced in size, but the overall height is lowered, the interior layout is more efficient and the workstations are height adjustable.
Individual places for quiet heads-down work and relaxation as well as communal gathering places for more social interaction were created. Scattered small interior breakrooms on each floor were replaced with a large social hub, centrally located on each floor. Filtered with natural light, The Hubs incorporate healthy food options and ample plug-and-play power integrated into a variety of furniture choices. While traditional conference rooms remain, several different types of looser, open collaborations areas were designed, all equipped with integrated technology and colorful pin-up and story-boarding walls.
The look-and-feel of the office is crisp and contemporary, with thoughtfully planned recesses of eye-catching rich color. Lighting was upgraded as well, reducing glare on computer screens and providing a sophisticated layered effect on the interior. Most importantly, design elements that address Concentra’s Mission and Values permeate the space. Gallery walls enclose the Hubs, designed with an artful display of each year’s “Hall of Fame” employees, which will grow over time. To further inspire employees, large murals representing the company’s world-class patient care the occupy certain areas of the space.
This partnership between Concentra and Page resulted in a headquarters that truly embodies what Concentra stands for. A healthy, collaborative and mission-centric workplace where employees are happy to spend their day.
