Open - Icade's headquarters
In September 2017, Icade’s headquarters moved from the Millénaire 1 building (in the Portes de Paris business park) to the Open building in Issy-les-Moulineaux. More than a relocation, this move has brought about changes in work and management practices within the company. In this regard, Open is a shining example of Icade’s expertise in commercial real estate.
A dynamic work environment
Open is about bringing more flexibility, collaborative working and exchanging of ideas among coworkers. Everything has been designed to improve the efficiency and quality of life in the workplace for employees . An across-the-board approach insofar as, just like any employee, Icade’s Executive Committee members now benefit from a fully flexible office space called “flex office” .
“More than a new address, this move represents a new way of working, sharing and living together. Relocating our headquarters was the logical next step in the transformation that Icade initiated more than a year ago, explained Olivier Wigniolle, CEO . It is our mission to design and build high-quality living and working environments for our clients—it is only fair that do the same for our employees.”
Flex-office works thanks to the wide variety of spaces that Open has to offer —in this way, employees can move to another workspace depending on their needs. Icade and its visitors will be pleased to find meeting rooms for creative brainstorming, a library, a Meditation Corner and so much more. The Icade Hub , which was already up and running in Icade's former headquarters, has been expanded to house the Open Lab, dedicated to projects led by Icade’s intrapreneurs and partners as well as by start-ups . This site dedicated to innovation can host conferences, seminars or any other event open to the general public.
Technology facilitates exhanges
To contribute to its employees’ mobility and flexibility, Icade has chosen to equip all of Open’s meeting rooms with Cisco Spark technology . In this way, both collaborative working and teleworking have been made easier by allowing employees in different locations to be connected to one another via a computer or smartphone.
