The prospect of a new company headquarters should be an exciting, not a taxing time. Watchdog is committed to handling all strategic negotiations to ensure clients achieve their desired goals. We were engaged by Vertex, a leading provider of comprehensive tax technology solutions for corporations, to manage the build-out of their new company headquarters. Watchdog was involved for the entirety of the three-year process. At the beginning, our team performed site selection, analysis and due diligence exercises to provide the required information to select the optimal site for Vertex. Throughout the process, we communicated and consulted with the board of directors, senior leadership and company executives on all building decisions.
The Vertex culture is unique. Vertex is a highly sophisticated organization; they are team-based and extremely collaborative. Vertex is a matrixed organization and places great emphasis on teamwork, openness, and respect in the workplace. Their previous facility did not support their company culture or core competencies.
As a result, Vertex adopted an entirely new design during the workplace strategy process. A traditional, enclosed office environment was morphed into an open, collaborative space designed to enhance employee productivity in order to meet clients’ needs.
