Cayan Unveils Global Office Renovations: New Culture Embodied in Bold New Physical Rebuild

March 17, 2016 – Boston, MA and Belfast, UK – Today Cayan, The Payment Possibilities Company™, celebrated the completion of a nearly $8M global renovation of its Boston headquarters and Northern Ireland, United Kingdom offices. Although many companies say employees are their greatest assets, Cayan put its money where its mouth is: embarking upon a radical redesign to reflect and amplify the company’s pivoting culture, personality and values – while also making their office “house” feel more like a “home” for employees, complete with living room-styled meeting spaces and vast employee cafĂ© remodels. The resulting colorful and bright 42,000 square foot Boston and 22,500 square foot Belfast offices promote teamwork and collaboration while complimenting individual working styles.

“After 18 years, Cayan’s transformed from a sales focused-organization to a technology-first company –  we’re building the future of payments in both Boston and Belfast –  and so we wanted every inch of these new offices to reflect our evolving journey,” explained Henry Helgeson, CEO and Co-Founder of Cayan. “For example, at the heart of our Boston headquarters we have also designed a small, innovation-centric retail lab to not only practice what we preach but also constantly challenge our employees to improve the retail experience.”

The build out of Cayan’s Boston location includes “watercooler meeting points” designed to mimic living room enclaves as well as high top tables and bar stools to encourage more eye-to-eye conversation in place of traditional conference room scenarios which can drain creativity. Other renovations include converting the previous tenant’s bank vaults into nap rooms and an online gaming area, where employees are encouraged to create across-the-pond comradery by playing one another in the occasional game or two. Included in the investment is also a commitment to improving infrastructure and office systems to not only enable collaboration, but enhance interoperability, reporting and performance. 

Following its launch in Northern Ireland in 2013, Cayan has grown its initial headcount of 15 employees to what is now a full-time staff of over 135 employees. The company’s new Sci-Fi themed Belfast office occupies two floors and about one-third of the City Quays 1 waterfront building’s 84,000 square foot development.
