Est. reading time: 4 mins

Paige Butterfield is many things: a small-town girl-turned-city woman, a volunteer for causes like Athletes with Disabilities and—since 2018—assistant vice president and director of workplace environment for Iowa-based insurance company UFG Insurance.

Est. reading time: 3 mins

There are obvious reasons why Chicago-based law firm Chapman and Cutler would move from its more-than-a-century-old office to a new location. But according to Doug Domenick, the firm’s chief facilities management and workplace strategies officer, the move was also made with some not-so-obvious intentions. “The nature of work has changed,” he says. “Our new office […]
