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

In order to more effectively align executive incentive compensation with the long term strategies of the Corporation, on March 20, 2018, the Human Resources and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of HNI Corporation amended Stock Option Award Agreements for all outstanding stock options previously granted to the Corporation's executives, including its named executive officers, and certain other members of the management team, under the Corporation's 2007 and 2017 Stock-Based Compensation Plans, to remove the restriction requiring stock options to be exercised within three years following retirement. Current Stock Option Award Agreements allow for a retired stock option holder to exercise vested options until the earlier of (i) the option expiration date; or (ii) the third anniversary date of retirement. The amendment removes the second clause, which was instituted many years ago and no longer furthers the goals of the Corporation and the Committee. The Committee made the same amendment to the form of the Corporation's Stock Option Award Agreement for future option grants under the 2017 Stock-Based Compensation Plan.

The above description of the amendments to the Stock Option Award Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the amended forms of the 2007 and 2017 Stock-Based Compensation Plan Stock Option Award Agreements filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Report.
