Kawasaki's headquarters in Foothill Ranch, California has been recognized for its innovative working environment with a 2017 REmmy Award in workspace design.
“One of the primary goals of our new building design was to immerse our team members and visitors into the Kawasaki Brand,” said Kawasaki's vice president of Marketing, Chris Brull. “Our lobby welcomes everyone with the brand DNA, featuring our signature green and multiple displays of our race bikes in action. Engineering strength, along with our diversity and heritage are all showcased for everyone to see as the Kawasaki brand flows throughout the design.”
KMC moved into its new space in June 2016 and the innovative design incorporates individual and group workstations; as well as employee wellness areas and the legendary Kawasaki Heritage Hall.
“We are honored to receive a REmmy Award,” said Kawasaki senior vice president, Sales & Operations, Bill Jenkins. “When we made the decision to move into our new headquarters, we wanted to create a productive and fun work environment. We had the challenge of mixing a creative space with warehousing and shop areas. It was a team effort for our new headquarters in Foothill Ranch to meet all those needs and it is great to be recognized with this REmmy Award.”
This year marked the 11th year of the REmmy Awards, an annual program put on by The Southern California chapter of CoreNet Global.
