IN THE COMMUNITY
Spreading Holiday Cheer
Our Syracuse Team partnered with Sarah’s Guest House. We stuffed and distributed stockings filled with useful items for families in need.
Sedgwick was thrilled to be a sponsor for Everson Museum's Festival of Trees.
Our Corning Team gathered to organize gifts for the Salvation Army "Angels" Giving Tree. We also donated items to the Food Pantry Christmas Baskets to be gifted to families in need.
Herman Miller Verus Chairs
Comfort and ergonomic support at an attainable price.
Verus redefines what an affordable work chair can be. Efficiently designed and engineered to assure ergonomic alignment and support, it gives people both short-term and long-term comfort at an equally comfortable price.
Andrea Northrop recently participated in the Living Office Placemaking practicum, which is an 8 week course that results in a Placemaking Certificate through Herman Miller.
Each designer spent forty to sixty hours of time participating in the hands on continuing education program followed by a final presentation.
We are so proud of Andrea's 101/110 score! At Sedgwick, our team is encouraged to achieve industry leading certifications and we wholeheartedly support continuing education programs!

SEDGWICK FUN FACT
Did you know that over a lifetime, the average person spends 90,000 hours at work?
We’ve all heard the joke before – “This place is like my second home!” This statement is actually true for a lot of the working force. And now more than ever, the workplace landscape is changing from tall cubicles and private offices to a more comfortable and adaptable space for employees to enjoy and thrive at work. Sedgwick Business Interiors can help guide your business to stay abreast with the growing trends and keep your employees happy and focused during those 90,000 hours!
INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE
eSports - What is it!?!
This new billion-dollar industry is taking the world by storm. But what exactly is eSports? Well, move over NFL & NBA, competitive sporting is going virtual. All over the world, people are competing in organized video gaming events and earning some big pay-outs in the process. These tournaments and events even attract viewing crowds that rival most traditional professional sports broadcasting. The world of competitive video gaming has grown at such a substantial rate, that colleges are even taking steps to accommodate this growing interest by offering varsity eSports programs or creating designated gaming facilities. Some even in our back yard:
St. Thomas Aquinas College
So if you haven’t heard much about the world of competitive eSports gaming yet, you probably will very soon. eSports gaming is expected to only continue growing in popularity every year.
