The company, Mediu, resells software to the call center industry. But its 12,000 square-foot facility at 106 Stover Drive contain some unexpected elements, such as Berichon’s laid-back style office with its collection of model cars and a vinyl record player, which he brought over to showcase at work for a couple of days.
Mediu’s founder and chief executive officer’s passion for music has a presence at headquarters, which has a band room filled with old-fashioned microphones, sound systems, guitars and a drum set. Berichon found like-minded employees to start a band, which plays after business hours Thursday evenings.
The sessions allow Berichon to relate to his employees “on a human level” that helps grow the business by developing loyalty among them. Berichon said his employees consider the facility a second home largely because of the culture he was able to cultivate after he relocated to Delaware.
“It’s a whole different lifestyle,” he said. “I don’t think we can get this anywhere else.”
