GRAND RAPIDS — Turnstone, a Steelcase brand, announced a national contest that will give five small and emerging businesses — companies with less than 100 employees — a chance to win a $25,000 office makeover.

Companies have until April 15 to submit their online applications at

To enter the “Win a Sweet New Office!” contest, companies must create a video demonstrating why a sweet Turnstone office makeover will make a difference in their work and workplace. A panel of expert judges will select the top 25 videos, and then the public will vote on which five companies get the prize. Entries can be uploaded and viewed at Public voting will open at the end of April, and winners will be announced in May.

“Great workplace design is not a template, but rather a mirror of a company’s individual brand and culture, resulting in better collaboration, creativity and productivity,” said Ken Neil, Turnstone communications manager. “The winning companies will receive not just $25,000 in renovations, they will have their workplaces transformed into environments that will facilitate growth.”

According to recent Steelcase research, 89 percent of workers say it’s important for the workplace to attract and engage employees. With small businesses competing just as hard for today’s global talent pool, it takes their unique environments and work styles seldom found at big companies to attract top employees.

Turnstone is a Steelcase Inc. brand inspired by the spirit of small business. The company designs solutions that help create great work environments that are easy to own and exhilarating to use. For more information, visit
