A look at EY’s new Charlotte ‘workplace of the future’

EY (that’s Ernst & Young to most of you) cut the ribbon on its newly renovated space in the Bank of America Corporate Center on Wednesday. They take up all of floors 37 and 38, and half of 40. And they spent a full year fixing it up into their vision of the “workplace of the future.”

The renovations flipped what was a traditional office on its head. Corner offices with big windows for partners went away. Now nobody has a permanent workspace. Most people work at one of the rows of desks ringing the outside of the floor. Lots of natural light and great views. The inside of the floor has rows of collaboration spaces with whiteboards that groups can reserve. Super inviting and good uses of technology.

Fast facts

  • EY is one of the “big four” accounting firms globally and has a big Charlotte presence: 824 people are based in the city’s office.
  • The renovations bumped up the number of seats from 260 to 380. That much less than the number of employees because so many people are out at client sites daily.
  • The whole office is now hooked up to Wi-Fi, and there’s a connection for both staff and guests.
  • You can reserve space throughout the office with your key badge. The system will also tell you where someone is when you need to find them and draw you a map on how to get there.
