Neiman Marcus Group is creating three new corporate hubs to promote innovation and collaboration among its employees. It will debut these office hubs within the next year: one each in Dallas, New York City, and Bangalore, India.
The Dallas hub will be Cityplace Tower in Uptown—selected for its close proximity to its flagship store Downtown and its historically highest-grossing store at NorthPark Center. In May, the Dallas City Council approved a $5 million incentive package to keep the luxury retailer in Dallas, fending off efforts by Irving and Plano to lure the company to the suburbs.
According to Neiman Marcus Group’s EVP, Chief People and Belonging Officer Eric Severson, the new Dallas hub will be an innovation center and a place where associates can gather, meet, and strategize.
“The old way of thinking one person to one seat and that the individual stays in his or her assigned seat all day isn’t conducive to the way people work now,” Severson told D CEO. “People now know corporate roles can be productive wherever. We want to create a space where people can come to when they want or need to come together with other people.” Click to read more at www.dmagazine.com.
