Talent Plus Associates Move Into New Building
Lincoln, Neb. - Talent Plus associates will be moving into the company's new corporate headquarters today, Friday, Dec. 17, 2004, readying the company for start of business on Monday, Dec. 20. Talent Plus' new three-story, all-glass building is located at One Talent Plus Way, just to the north of 65th and Pioneers Boulevard. Talent Plus has been anticipating this move since groundbreaking in October 2003.
"This building will showcase our associates and clients; it's a building of museum quality. Through the simplicity of its clear exterior and interior walls, the heart of our business and its inner relationships can be reflected," offers Talent Plus Chairman Doug Rath. Of importance in the design phase was the culture of Talent Plus. "We want visitors to feel the warmth and welcoming nature of this space and have opportunities to interact." The building was designed to promote interaction and communication consistent with Talent Plus' Mission, Vision and Values. The building allows Talent Plus to accommodate planned growth - with plans to more than double its current size.
Talent Plus' decision to build in Lincoln came after looking at alternative sites in Chicago, Dallas and Colorado Springs. Rath and his wife, Kimberly, Talent Plus' managing director and president, have called Lincoln home since the 1960s. "The number one reason we stayed is the people; the human capital in Lincoln is extraordinary."
Talent Plus acquired one of the most unique sites in the city at the south side of Lincoln's Holmes Lake and Golf Course area. "From our new headquarters, we will be able to see the State Capitol building, the scoreboard at Memorial Stadium - we have a vista through the Antelope Parkway that is unparalleled," says Rath.
Robert Liner from Liner Design in Los Angeles designed the building. The local architect is The Clark Enersen Partners, the general contractor is Sampson Construction and financing was provided through First National Bank of Omaha.
