Sears Holdings Corporation (SHC) strives to build a team of engaged associates who embrace change and technology. Offering plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging stations at its corporate headquarters in Hoffman Estates, Illinois aligns with the organization’s mission and contributes to the company’s rich culture. SHC has installed multiple chargers at stores across the U.S. for the benefit of its employees, members, and customers. In 2012, SHC installed two Level 2 chargers in the visitor parking lot at the corporate headquarters. The high visibility of these chargers sparked conversations across the organization and the demand for more chargers increased. In 2014, SHC installed an additional seven Level 2 chargers in the employee parking lot and has plans for six more in 2015. All stations are currently available free of charge to SHC associates.
