Our Response to the Spread of COVID-19

Doing Our Part to Protect Our Team and the Community

For more than 100 years, Herman Miller has used the power of design to serve humankind: the customers we serve, the people we employ, the communities in which we live and work, the shareholders who invest in us, and the world we inhabit. We’ll continue to use creativity, collaboration, and a whole lot of hard work to design solutions for the challenges brought to all of us by the unprecedented coronavirus.

Below is information on what we at Herman Miller are currently doing to meet these challenges. The situation is quickly changing; we’ll keep this page updated with the latest news and information.

Social Distancing

Or, as we should say, physical distancing. Any employees who can are working from home. We’ve increased space on manufacturing lines that continue to run. We’ve restricted travel. We have protocols in place for essential visitors. But we remain socially connected with each other, more than ever before.

Sharing Our Knowledge

As companies are overwhelmed by the shift to homeworking, we are leveraging our decades of experience in all things work. We have moved our popular seminars to webinars so people can dial in wherever they are – for free. We’ll continue to help however we can.

Adapting Our Approach

Any employee that can is now working from home. Our manufacturing facility in Melksham, UK is temporarily closed due to the increased restrictions announced by the UK government. Our Michigan manufacturing facilities are also temporarily shut down to comply with shelter-in-place orders from the state governor. Our manufacturing facilities in other areas of the world are still up and running.

Our Spaces

To protect the well-being and the health of our employees and community, we’re closing our showroom and offices in São Paulo, Mexico City and Monterey, until further notice.

Helping You and Your Employees Work from Home
