Rapidly growing SelectQuote Insurance Services needed additional space to accommodate its expanding local workforce. Hoefer Wysocki was hired as the design architect and interior designer to facilitate SelectQuote’s office expansion. The Hoefer Wysocki team implemented an employee-centric design, rich with amenities. The space offers outdoor break areas, game and media rooms, a coffee bar and a flexible grandstand collaboration staircase. The interior design embraces the SelectQuote brand of providing exceptional customer service in a fun and bold environment. Highly productive spaces are balanced with areas for employees to recharge. A bold and vibrant color palette is balanced with natural materials including reclaimed wood for doors, walls and ceilings. Since moving into the new space, SelectQuote reports increased employee retention and attraction of new talent and the Kansas City Business Journal recognized SelectQuote as a “Best Place to Work 2017.”
