At Divvy, we believe in FlexWork: Our people choose the office or remote spaces or some combination. They manage their own schedules because life changes day-to-day and we desire to meet and support our people where they are.
This summer, we opened the doors to our new headquarters in order to support our employees in FlexWork.
The 150,000 square foot building features an outdoor basketball court, gender neutral restrooms, and a striking hotel-inspired lobby. Divvy HQ was designed to be used for formal, collaborative, and casual meetings, as is evident by the lobby set up—what we’re calling Divvy Central.
Casey Bailey, SVP of People and Places, explained, “The vision for Divvy Central was to avoid the stadium seating for company all hands meetings you see in some offices that gets used once a week, then sits vacant. Instead, we wanted to create a vibrant space with many types of seating for people to use throughout every day.”
Like many businesses, we have reacted to the new realities of remote work and the shift in what the “office” means. As we opened the doors to Divvy HQ, we took a phased approach and have required screening and tracking protocols as more employees have entered the building, including temperature screenings and facial coverings.
Casey continued, “There is a balance to achieve as each person works differently and may need something different from us. With insights from surveys and a desire to see the future of work, we’ve built an office that feels more like a home—with many different types of areas to do work or gather.”
Corbin Himstreet, Divvy’s workplace manager, explained that this commitment to various employee needs has expanded to the building layout and design. Corbin said that one of the things that excited him the most about the new headquarters are the “gender neutral restrooms that show Divvy’s commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles and equality for all.”
Divvy has an inclusive culture and wants to meet people where they are, so they can come to work every day and be their true self.
Casey said, “We also felt driven to change the baseline requirements for gender neutral restrooms in construction in Utah. Simply because OSHA, case law, and building standards have not kept pace with where the world is today, doesn’t mean landlords and tenants should not build for everyone in mind.
We were adamant about ensuring that everyone feels safe and comfortable at work, so we built gender neutral restrooms on all floors. We carried this tone into our gym as well with all gender neutral restrooms and private changing rooms.”
Divvy HQ is also equipped with a 2,000 square foot flexible Training Center, a Mother’s Room for nursing parents, Nurse’s Station for private medical care, and Neighborhood Service where we bring onsite services to Divvy, such as haircuts and car detailing.
“These resources directly align with our parental leave and FlexWork policies,” said Casey Bailey, “making Divvy a best place to work.”
The new Divvy headquarters is located at 13707 South 200 West, Draper, UT 84020.
