Orange, Media City, 48,000 Sq ft
Understanding the power of the environment in kickstarting cultural change, we partnered with global food manufacturer, Kellogg’s, to create a new UK headquarters centred around the changing organisation and its people.
After 35 years in their office in Talbot Road, the company were keen to transform the landscape of their business to reflect their progressive ambitions for the future and move towards a more agile and adaptive organisation.
We worked with Kellogg’s from design through to completion, involving staff from across the organisation to better understand their workplace needs and aid in employee engagement before, during and after the move.
Situated across three floors of the iconic Orange building, Media City, the new space and dynamic environment we have created enables employees to work at their best whilst appealing to a new generation of talent. Offering stunning views and natural light, the design is focussed around openness, the ability to connect with colleagues, incorporating a variety of different work settings and a move for the organisation towards Activity Based Working.
Features of the workplace include a festival style auditorium space, coffee bar and customer engagement suite, blending employee space with the customer experience.
Enabling international communication and a seamless employee experience, the latest technology is built in to the space and colourful, soundproofed glass ‘pods’ allow for a quiet moment whilst still feeling part of the workplace community.
Supporting Kellogg’s in achieving their objectives for true cultural change, the new headquarters fosters a positive, collaborative and healthy environment that will enable employees to feel happy and be inspired to come to work every day. It is a space to delight customers, consumers and future talent, blending the brands legacy with the Kellogg’s of tomorrow.
"Our new office is really enabling us to build a culture for the 21st century for Kellogg’s. It has new work environments, activity based working, in a fresh environment, that is bright, right in the heart of one of Manchester’s most vibrant business communities. It’s really helping our business grow.” Paul Wheeler, Director of Corporate Communications, UKI
