Flexible Work Schedules – A lot of companies say it, but Widen practices it. Employees are free to change up their workspace to encourage creativity or production. Whether this be next to our fireplace, home, a local coffee shop or our downtown coworking space at 100State. Need to leave early for an appointment or a sick child? No problem!
Wellness – We want our employees to be healthy. Widen has newly-renovated showers and locker rooms. We offer onsite fitness classes and have a variety of fitness equipment available for employee usage. Some employees choose to bike to work due to our close proximity to the bike path. Widen also offers indoor bike storage.

Themed Conference Rooms – Ever feel like escaping to Devil’s Lake for the afternoon? Maybe a trip down State Street? Our conference rooms are themed after Wisconsin cities, including the Chippewa Falls Leinie’s Lodge!
Professional Development – Employees are encouraged to expand their knowledge and skillset through professional development. Whether that be going to a seminar or taking on a special project, managers are open to ideas! Knowledge sharing is one of our core principles.
Madison – Once you visit our city, we know you’ll fall in love just like we did! Madison has so much to offer in the form of arts, nature, restaurants, entertainment and lake activities. Badger football Saturdays are a must in the fall.
