PwC US Opens Innovative Workspace in the Heart of Downtown Harrisburg
Professional Services Firm Relocates 150 Employees as it Anticipates Growth in the Greater Pennsylvania Marketplace
HARRISBURG, Pa., July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – PwC US today opened its new offices located in the Penn National Building at Two North Second Street in downtown Harrisburg. Signaling its faith and long-term commitment to the city and the Central Pennsylvania market, PwC designed the space to accommodate its future growth plans and signed a ten-year lease with the building.
PwC is pleased to continue its longstanding presence in the city of Harrisburg and the greater Central Pennsylvania region, which is home to several Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, as well as many thriving locally owned businesses. The region has been recognized by a major business publication as one of the best places for businesses. Additionally, Harrisburg has also been highly rated for its job prospects and educational offerings while the greater Harrisburg region has continually been recognized as one of the most livable areas in the United States.
“We see a bright future in Harrisburg and are excited to continue our long legacy of providing quality services to our clients in the market as we continue to grow our presence here,” said Pamela Schlosser, managing partner of PwC’s Harrisburg office. “We also plan to continue our active involvement in the community, with a focus on helping local schools and organizations in improving youth education.”
The new office design was developed specifically for PwC based on feedback from its employees and will allow the firm to better meet current and future workplace and operational needs. With an open concept design, the office boasts many features specifically aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle for staff members including a walking workstation, and an interactive cafe with a lounge area to provide a space for team meetings. The new space is also centrally located to a number of local restaurants, parks, and public transportation.
“We implemented a new workplace design that incorporates a more modern and open floor plan to enhance team collaboration and client service delivery while still reducing our overall footprint,” said Ms. Schlosser. “As we built out the space, we placed a premium on efficiency and a concern for the environment, personal flexibility and teaming.”
Ms. Schlosser also noted that the space will be attuned to today’s highly mobile worker with advanced media sharing technologies throughout the office.
As one of the largest professional services firms in Harrisburg, PwC is seeing increased demand for its services and is optimistic about its future growth. PwC will occupy the 11(th) floor of the building, which offers breathtaking views of the Susquehanna River and the West Shore. The office features a progressive design with many innovative features, including custom artwork showcasing local landmarks.
