Home Office

Stampin’Up! is an amazing company.  The vision, mission, and implementation of their ideas is totally inspiring.  While at convention, demonstrators had the opportunity to visit the home office.  This is a fairly new building that includes the corporate office and distribution center.  Walking in to the building is breath-taking.  Shelly has brought the outside in with the atrium garden and water feature.

This is taken from the top floor, looking down three stories.  The natural light is gorgeous, and the sound of running water is relaxing.  I would love to work in this building.  It seems like everyone who works here totally loves it.

Stampin’Up! really made us feel welcome by decorating with the convention theme banners – not only at the convention center and at the home office, but also through-out Salt Lake City (outside on the electrical poles and columns etc. around the Salt Palace).

Of course anywhere you have something stamping-related with a group of Stampin’Up! demonstrators, there will be a line.  Here we go again. . . this time waiting to get in to the Legacy Museum.

The Legacy Museum is an area where there are pictures and flash-backs from years past in Stampin’Up! life.  It’s amazing to see the difference between old Stampin’Up! catalogs and the current ones.  The art work and ideas have developed and become trend-setting (vs. trend-following).  There are amazing stamped art and home-decor ideas in the museum as well.  Each time I’ve visited the museum there have been different ideas that have been updated.  They can come and practice decorating in my home any time.  I’ll have to post some pictures of the home-decor ideas in another post.

This is one of the Demonstrator Services cubicles.  We got to walk through the call center to get a feel for the work environment.  I’m amazed at the positive attitude that Stampin’Up! staff consistently exhibits.  I know that working in the home office is a great opportunity – and people who work there totally know how blessed they are (based on what they say and how they interact with the demonstrators.) 

We got a birds-eye glimpse of the distribution center.  This is a state-of-the-art facility that is totally mechanized.  One of the things we learned at convention is that compared to 10 years ago, Stampin’Up! ships 100,000 more orders per day (during peak Sale-A-Bration promotion) with 40 fewer staff.  That’s just amazing!  The work environment in here is also great.  There is natural light (sky-lights) and music piped in.  It is amazing to see the whole thing work. Order accuracy is incredible, because after an order is entered (by a demonstrator), the system knows exactly how much that order will weigh, so when the order is completely picked the box will go over a scale to check for accuracy.

    Possibly another link coming your way.

    Can’t believe you did all this while there! I stayed up half the night trying to keep my reading at a manageable level!

    I agree that it is an awesome looking space. When I used to work before becoming a stay at home mother, I also had the great advantage of a wonderful work environment. In looks and people wise too. Nothing could beat it and it made all the difference in the world towards my attitude in going to work every morning.

    Louise – I didn’t keep up with my reading. . . so I posted. Now I’m catching up on that. Thanks for the links

    Milena – It’s much better to work in a job you hate with people you love than in a job you love with people you hate. To have a job in a great environment with great people is a true gift. Thanks for stopping by!

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
