Vibrant Credit Union retrofitted a former Sam’s Club store in order to house its growing workforce, adding a variety of unique features intended to make going to the office feel a little less like going to work.
CEO Matt McComb’s vision began to take shape in 2018 when he found Vibrant’s new home – an empty 140,000 square-foot warehouse in Moline, just five miles from the then-current headquarters that was quickly running out of space for its 160 back-office employees and struggling with parking. What McCombs stumbled upon was a newly vacant Sam’s Club that had been shuttered in January 2018 when Wal-Mart scaled back 63 of their underperforming wholesale club stores nationwide. Where others saw an empty industrial building, McCombs saw a blank canvas and plenty of parking.
During this webinar, Tiffany Haedt, vice president of talent and development for Vibrant Credit Union ($1.1B, Moline, IL), will discuss how the cooperative transformed an empty warehouse into a new HQ that serves as the cornerstone for the credit union’s evolving culture.
