Roney says the previous location was dark, dreary and dated. Now the modern building has a new color scheme, natural light and updated technology, and it feels more welcoming for both staff and members. A family area is available for members, and plans for a “417 Originals Wall,” a space dedicated to showcasing the work of local artists, are in the works.
As opposed to the previous building, almost every office has a window, which staff say helps them feel energized, according to Roney. The idea correlates with the company’s rebranding. “Because Volt is about reVOLTing against banking as usual, we started doing things differently from design,” Roney says. “We are creating a new space for us to start fresh in the community and be able to serve our members better and have better communication with them.”
