Embarking on a new chapter in the health and wellness advertising agency’s 40-year history, AbelsonTaylor relocated headquarters to Chicago’s newly renovated Old Post Office. Occupying 80 thousand square feet in the reimagined Art Deco landmark, AbelsonTaylor’s new headquarters was strategically designed to foster creative collaboration among employees and facilitate future business expansion.
“You not only have to adapt to change, you have to plan for it,” says Dale Taylor, agency founder and CEO. “With changes in the size and composition of our agency and the way we work, we needed a more open, collaborative environment and the ability to grow and change in place. Our new workplace gives us that. It’s dynamic, expansive, and brings us together in dozens of inspiring spaces to collaborate on the more than 50 healthcare brands we serve.”
AbelsonTaylor President Jeff Berg says the versatility of the agency’s new headquarters gives employees a welcome freedom to choose how and where they work. “Everyone has a dedicated workspace, but no one is confined to working there. If you need a quiet place to write something highly clinical, maybe you choose one of our 27 focus rooms. If you want to work somewhere lively, maybe you choose one of our five open collaboration spaces, 19 conference rooms, or 17 flex rooms. Or, if coffee is what fuels your creativity, you can always set up shop in one of our two large cafes. The number and variety of spaces gives us unprecedented workstyle freedom.”
