IFMA Northeast Wisconsin March meeting
The March meeting will once again find us on a tour of a new world-class facility in our area. Secura Insurance, a company with a 120-year history in northeast Wisconsin, elected to keep its operations in the Appleton area, breaking ground in 2017 on a 160-acre parcel of land in the Village of Fox Crossing.
Reflecting the heritage of its founding family and long-time leadership, Secura's building preserves much of the natural landscape around it, focusing on the views and incorporating walking paths, balconies and other outdoor seating/working areas. An equal priority was put on employee connectedness and a people-focused culture, with loads of amenities including a full gym, fitness center and a wellness clinic onsite and a design that promotes movement and interaction. Well-building certification is also being pursued.
Sustainability was a major component of the plan and is immediately evidenced by the ground-mounted solar field on the property. The facility was also designed with growth in mind, allowing for the addition of nearly 400 new employees to the 750 that moved in last fall. Modifications to some of the initial building systems designs resulted in significant cost savings and technology improvements. To improve productivity and better integrate offsite workers, advanced meeting technologies were incorporated into every conference room to meet current needs and prepare for the future.
Please join us for this very enlightening facility tour. Please arrive promptly at 3:30 so we can begin our tour shortly thereafter. Parking is available in visitor parking and any open stall on the surface lot; we will meet in the lobby. Secura's working hours go until 4:30, so please plan to be quiet in the work areas and stay with the group as it moves through the facility. Photos will be allowed as long as they are not shared on social media.
At Secura's request, we are limiting attendance to the first 20 members to register.
