Healthy Workplace Spotlight: Rockhill Management

Posted by Coley Ward on Jun 29, 2018 1:15:31 PM
 
It used to be that if you had a white collar business in Boston, you put your offices downtown. But that's all changed. Now there are more options -- more things to consider. How many food trucks are there within a 100-foot radius? Is there a bike share dock nearby? Do you even want an office? What about a co-working space instead? Or an incubator? Better still, how about everybody telecommutes?!

Rockhill Management, a commercial real estate company that owns several buildings in Downtown Boston and throughout the US, watched as tenants left to move to trendy neighborhoods like The Leather District or Seaport. As a result of shifting makeup of office buildings Downtown, they decided a change in culture at their buildings would go a long way.

"The market has really changed downtown," said Jennifer Twombly, a senior property manager at Rockhill. "It went from a very traditional base to trying to attract companies from the Seaport and Cambridge that are getting priced out of those areas.”

"We started saying we need to attract different types of businesses here."

Coffee, chocolate, tea, mangoes, cashews; these are the mediums which allow us to show the world that ethical supply chains are viable and that there is more than one way to do business.
