The new, 52,000 square meters large LEGO® building complex uniquely joins workplace and fun place - as employees wanted it. We want!
LEGO Group plans to build the new office building in Billund, Denmark, where more than 4,000 LEGO® employees (out of LEGO Group's more than 17,000 people) of 35 nationalities work in Denmark. According to the news release by LEGO, an integral part of the new office building is LEGO® People House; an area housing facilities for various activities, all based on input from LEGO employees. As such, the new office building will serve as both workspace and play space for LEGO employees.
"We want a distinct office building that clearly conveys the LEGO values, and which truly expresses the creative, innovative culture of our company. I am very excited that we can now present our vision for this new building, both to our employees and to the community," says Claus Flyger Pejstrup, Senior Vice President at the LEGO Group, and responsible for the LEGO Group Headquarters in Denmark.
"LEGO People House creates a unique social environment that serves as a vibrant, global gathering point, not only for the employees working there on a daily basis but also for the many LEGO employees from the rest of the world, when they visit Billund. It will house exciting facilities, where employees can be physically active and socialize, both during and outside working hours. It is our clear intent that the atmosphere will be both informal and inspirational, making it ideal for employees to get together with colleagues from around the world," says Claus Flyger Pejstrup.
