Visalus, a rapidly-growing nutritional supplement company, wanted a decidedly ‘anti-ice cube tray’ environment and they sought out vSA to deliver this for them. Developing workplace standards for their new call center, the space has interpreted their anti-culture into a creative, energy-filled workspace that encourages interaction and idea sharing, as well as learning. In a true expression of their culture and its entrepreneurial roots, the CEO is office-less yet able to work effortlessly in space uniquely suited to the functions. The space has built-in amenities that support their healthy-life style culture including a fitness room, a walking track and ‘shake stations’ in lieu of coffee bars, to expand their products and culture.
