BLACKLINE WINS SAN FERNANDO VALLEY BUSINESS JOURNAL COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE AWARD
Win Celebrates Employee-Driven Project That Brings Creative Workspace, Employee-Centric Culture to the Valley
LOS ANGELES - March 21, 2016 — BlackLine, Inc., with headquarters in Woodland Hills, was recognized last week at the 2016 Commercial Real Estate Awards hosted by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal. The awards highlight the ‘biggest, best and most notable commercial real estate projects of the past 18 months’. BlackLine was acknowledged alongside the broker CBRE, architect DLR Group, and Sierra Pacific Contractors.
BlackLine was awarded ‘Best Tenant Improvement’ for the 65,000 square feet project that transformed the company’s corporate headquarters into a space that celebrates BlackLine’s open culture and commitment to employee engagement. In line with the company’s employee-centric culture, BlackLine began the project by asking employees for input, which resulted in a call for open spaces that foster collaboration, as well as more intimate spaces for one-on-one and group meetings. Employees also asked for areas that foster a
holistic work life, resulting in a space dedicated to Yoga, a game room, music room and state-of -the-art golf simulator. BlackLine grew from one and a quarter floors to three full floors and is now the anchor tenant with the company’s name and logo on the East and West sides of the twelve story building.
