New Willis office opens

Mar 8, 2018 by Lucy Chabot Reed

London-based risk management and insurance brokerage Willis Towers Watson christened its newly renovated Fort Lauderdale office with a cocktail reception this evening.

The sleek office space includes not only the firm’s local marine division but also its corporate risk and health & benefits divisions. Twelve “agile workstations” include desks that rise and lower to allow employees to shift positions. They are also clear each evening of personal belongings, making any station available to any employee any day.

“Nowadays, people are traveling so much or they are in meetings much of the day, so designated desks are wasted real estate,” said Maria Abreu, the company’s facility services coordinator. “This is the way to go.”

Abreu will soon oversee consolidation of two Miami offices into another similar, albeit larger, office on Brickell Avenue this summer. The new Fort Lauderdale office is at 1500 Cordova Road, Suite 308 (33316).
