Northwestern Mutual Workplace Strategy: New Heights for Our Los Angeles Office

After months of engagement in a workplace strategy initiative with CBRE Group, Inc., Northwestern Mutual Los Angeles has unveiled the newly renovated office in Downtown Los Angeles. Sleek and modern, the redesign is a step into the future for our 160-year-old financial planning company.

Through adoption of the free-addressing model, in which all office space is collaborative, advisors and teams have workplace flexibility to occupy spaces of various sizes, configurations, and functions, including focus rooms with standing desks, private offices, and huddle rooms. The new space also features an espressobar, stunning views of Los Angeles, a client experience center, and high-tech conference rooms.

Northwestern Mutual Los Angeles is the first among its competitors in Los Angeles to engage in the free-addressing model as part of its larger strategy to bring clients and advisory teams the ultimate experience.
