SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ernst & Young LLP today announced the official relocation of its Salt Lake City office into a new, more tech-enabled, millennial-friendly space at Gateway Tower West building at 15 West Temple. The new Salt Lake City office workspace redesign provides a range of work settings and technologies to enhance the flexible work environment at EY, allow for headcount growth, make more effective use of office space, and continue to attract the best talent in Utah.
More than 150 EY professionals are based in the Salt Lake City office, and over 80% of them are millennials. The recent EY Global Generations study on work-life challenges across generations found that flexibility is one of the most important workplace perks among the non-cash/benefits perks. The study underscores that millennials today want flexibility in order to meet their professional and personal goals, as well as a work environment where the space and technology encourage communication, collaboration and creativity.
The firm’s new office features approximately 14,500 square feet of office space and brand new construction including an innovative open layout, more collaboration rooms, tech-enhanced work spaces, a coffee hub with café-style tables, and panoramic views of the Salt Lake City valley and downtown area. Half of all the new workstations and collaboration rooms in the new office offer a sit-to-stand option for professionals who prefer to work at standing desks.
“This new space is truly aligned with the innovative design and features we experience when visiting the offices of many of our clients, the leading entrepreneurs and tech companies driving growth in Silicon Slopes,” said the EY Salt Lake City Office Managing Partner Shawn Goff. “I know that our new office will encourage even more collaboration and allow us to continue delivering on our purpose of building a better working world, developing high-performing teams and providing exceptional client service.”
The EY Salt Lake City office is among several other offices in the West, and over a hundred within the EY worldwide network, to transition to the new EY@Work environment.
- EY@Work is designed around how EY people work, not where they sit
- People can choose which work space to use, based on the task at hand (there are no long-term assigned work spaces)
- Work space options are fluid: someone could sit in a virtual collaboration room working with colleagues in other locations and then move to a private room to take a confidential call
- Technology supports work in transit, at home or from client sites and enables people to be connected to colleagues, wherever they are based.
