Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On August 12, 2022, Kurt Tjaden informed HNI Corporation (the “Corporation”) he will retire from his position as President, HNI International, and Senior Vice President, HNI Corporation, effective September 30, 2022, after 14 years of dedicated service.

On the same date, Mr. Tjaden and HNI agreed on the terms of a separation agreement to be entered into and effective as of Mr. Tjaden’s retirement date. The separation agreement includes a $425,000 lump-sum cash payment, less withholding and deductions, and contains the customary release of claims, non-competition covenants, and other restrictions.

Following the Corporation’s sale of the Lamex business in July, the Corporation’s Board of Directors determined on August 15, 2022, that Mr. Tjaden no longer qualifies as an “executive officer” under Securities and Exchange Commission rules and, accordingly, removed him as an “officer” for purposes of Section 16 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
