Jackson is a leader in retirement solutions, but the company is also known for the incredible aesthetic of its corporate headquarters at 1 Corporate Way in Okemos. You’ve likely driven by the impressive building set back off Okemos Road and wondered about its story. How did it get so big? What does it look like inside?
Jackson’s original 290,000-square-foot headquarters was constructed in 2000 with enough space for 1,300 associates. In 2014, Jackson expanded the dining center — more than doubling its size — and added a state-of-the-art conference center with a large meeting room that can host up to 400 people at once. After unveiling a 230,000-square-foot expansion to its headquarters in 2015, Jackson now comfortably accommodates approximately 2,600 associates at its campus in approximately 600,000 square feet of total office space.
The headquarters features several team meeting areas and movable furniture to foster greater collaboration among staff members. It even has an outdoor pavilion and recreation area providing covered seating for up to 100 people. Employees can also enjoy a basketball court, soccer field, disc golf course, chipping and putting green, volleyball court, and other amenities.
The windows, the view, the artwork, the sculptures and the tree-lined property were all thoughtfully placed considerations. The campus is even Energy Star certified. No detail has been spared with each upgrade.
