How We Created Our Culture-Driven Work Space
We’re proud of our work space at LivePerson and always thrilled to see it featured on “cool office” lists. But our offices are more than cool for cool’s sake. Every detail is thought through by a volunteer group of employees to ensure the spaces aren’t just fun to look at but support our culture of meaningful connections, too.
That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to present at the Future Workplace Summit this week in NYC on the topic of “Creating Future Work Spaces That Transform Company Culture.” Barry Lamm, our director of partner success, presented to an audience of workplace designers and employee-engagement innovators about how LivePerson used the power of collaboration to create the space where we spend our days. He brought a “Blammy” along as a co-presenter.

Barry was central to orchestrating the 2010 event that helped us define our company’s core values and mission, which still shape our office space today.
We’ve since replicated this process in our locations around the world, ensuring that each space reflects regional needs and personality while maintaining a look and feel that’s distinctly LivePerson. We also ensure each new employee joining our team feels like an owner of their surroundings by giving them space to share artwork and personalize their own environment.
During our onboarding experience Inspire, employees paint a panel that shows what inspires them personally. We then add it to the respective office’s mosaic so every LivePerson has a stamp on their environment.
