Relocating Sax LLP to a New Headquarters
Sax LLP has been operating in a very traditional office environment for years: large private offices on the perimeter, high-walled workstations, and few amenities. Professional service firms all over the country—like KPMG at their 560 Lexington Avenue location, Energy Capital Partners at their new Headquarters, or RegentAtlantic at their new office—have been moving away from such a set-up for a number of years now, but it was only recently that Sax concluded that such changes might be right for them. They came to Mancini to see how we could implement this approach for a new office in northern New Jersey.
We don’t push clients into office concepts that aren’t right for them, no matter how trendy they may be. And Sax is run under some admirably time-tested principles: executives feel strongly that the firm should be a place where junior partners can learn the ropes, grow, and stay at the firm until they retire. So we weren’t interested in vouching for office concepts that might alienate its workforce—not any more than Sax was.
