Workplace Innovation: Cargill Constructs HQ of the Future
January 6, 2020
Imagine a workplace created with you in mind. No lonely cubicles, dugout vibes or fluorescent lighting. Instead, there is an employee café, a rooftop terrace and numerous wellness rooms. That’s Cargill Protein, one of the top two largest privately-held companies in the U.S. When it built its new headquarters in Wichita’s urban core, its top goal was to create a workspace that brought in the best and brightest minds to tackle challenges.
Its open-concept, four-story building turns the traditional office model on its head. Instead of corner offices, there are low-wall workspaces, sit-to-stand desks and floor-to-ceiling windows with a killer view of Wichita’s skyline. Open workspaces and local art can be found around every corner to promote collaboration, relationship building and community engagement. If you need time alone, “focus rooms” with plants and modern chairs are open for any employee to take advantage of. More than ten wellness rooms for nursing moms and brain breaks are located throughout the building.

The aesthetically pleasing and sustainably built headquarters faces Douglas Avenue, the most happening street in downtown Wichita. Over 800 employees can access the rooftop terrace, outdoor patio, employee café and game room to work, take a break or hold a meeting. And, if that’s not enough, there are tasting rooms for employees to sample new recipes crafted by on-site chefs.
As one of the top two largest privately-held companies in the country, Cargill Protein is not out of touch with its people. In fact, the only requested feature leadership couldn’t implement was a four-story slide. As cool as that would’ve been, the amenities within this 188,000 square foot facility are unmatched.
Opportunity awaits. Be part of a community focused on innovation that celebrates forward-thinking ideas. Find a job in the Wichita region at Cargill Protein here.
