Turning back the clock on the trend toward more open spaces in office buildings, software publisher IssueTrak has replaced most employee cubicles with offices in response to staff requests.

During a major remodeling of its offices, the Virginia Beach, Va.-based company transformed storage space and open, common areas to private offices so every employee could have one.

Founder and CEO Hank Luhring points to the employee-inspired change as one way to honor his commitment to “foster an environment where doing right by everyone drives overall success for individuals and the company as a whole …. We have created a culture where employees feel doing an effective job—and then recognizing outstanding performance—are of utmost importance.”

To that end, the 11-year-old company allows full-time employees to take two paid days per year to volunteer for a nonprofit of their choice. And team members and families take part in more than 10 company-initiated community service events annually.
