The past year has been an exciting one for American Fidelity Colleagues! We purchased a new building and have been working on the redesign and construction of each floor. We already have about 200 Colleagues working at our new location on brand new floors with great new furniture and about 150 more are set to move this fall. The rest of our Colleagues are busy planning their floors, too. That’s right, AFA is giving us the power to design our spaces! Right now my division is working on the design of our floor and I have the opportunity to be part of this team. We have a representative from each department within our division and it’s our job to go back to our teams and make sure everyone’s voice is heard. Our managers have pushed us to design our floors with minimal input from them. Going with an open concept as a Company, our floor is determined to create a fun environment that still allows us to have heads down working time. So far we have determined our working styles, put pen to paper on how much and what type of storage space we need and just last week we got to see our visions coming to life in the virtual system. I’m excited to see how our spaces turn out in the end and can’t wait to be working at our new location! I’ll be sure and share some photos as soon as we have them. Not only are AFA leaders empowering Colleagues to choose the workspaces that work best for them, but they are also giving Colleagues the opportunity to become leaders. What kind of workspace would you enjoy and why? Open, cubicle, a combination, just a chair and small table? Let us know in the comments!
