Crocs, the innovative casual footwear brand for women, men and children is opening their new corporate headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado. Crocs’ new facility is meant to put employees’ needs front and center.
The 90,000 sqft the state-of-the-art facility will allow the company to significantly expand its ability to hire more full-time jobs. This would be an addition to nearly 375 current positions.
Shannon Sisler, Crocs SVP & Chief People Officer said –”Niwot was our home for more than 16 years, and the facility and the Niwot community played a big part in helping our company grow. With an increasingly competitive workforce, and a need to give our employees a ‘home for work’ feeling, our new workspace in the ATRIA campus in neighboring Broomfield will allow us to continue attracting and retaining the best talent in the industry.”
“ATRIA was designed to support the growth of innovative companies like Crocs. This campus sets a new standard for workplace environments along the Northwest Corridor, strategically located to access multiple talent pools” added Ryan Good, Executive Vice President, and Partner at Etkin Johnson Real Estate Partners, owner-developer of ATRIA.

She added, “I look forward to welcoming our entire staff into the building soon so they themselves can experience this incredible new space where they can be confidently comfortable.”
Also as part of this new move, Crocs is dedicated to having a positive impact on the state and the community. As the company settles into its new home in Broomfield, they have already sought ways to get involved and give back, starting with donations to both the Broomfield Chamber of Commerce and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce for their ‘Prosper Colorado’ initiative.
“Like so many other businesses, Crocs has felt the impact of the COVID-19 virus across our business. The onset of the virus actually delayed this opening for a few months after we closed our corporate office and retail stores around the country,” added Sisler.
Crocs will continue to find more opportunities to get involved in the community as they settle into their new home in Broomfield. For now, they are closely following guidance from the state of Colorado and the city of Broomfield to begin a rolling introduction of their employees into their new space on a more full-time basis.
