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."

Healthy Workplace Spotlight: AIR Worldwide

Posted by Coley Ward on Apr 5, 2018 2:57:12 PM
 
The first thing you need to know about AIR Worldwide is that it's pronounced A-I-R, not "air," like the stuff you breathe in. When the company was founded in 1987, it stood for Applied Insurance Research. But today they just go by AIR. (Think ESPN or KFC or QANTAS).

Just because AIR doesn't mean anything doesn't mean the company doesn't stand for something. In the last year, AIR has gotten serious about employee wellness, prompted in part by a grant from the State of Massachusetts' Working On Wellness initiative.

Healthy Workplace Spotlight: Ceres

Posted by Coley Ward on Feb 23, 2018 11:17:55 AM
 
 

We've been delivering organic fruit to Ceres since 2016, and we just love what they do. Located near Boston's Chinatown, the advocacy group works to transform the economy to promote sustainability. Among other things, they work with companies and investors on solutions to climate change, water scarcity and human rights issues.

Ceres asks the corporations in its Company Network to take steps be more sustainable, and each of these companies publishes a sustainability report documenting their success. But Ceres also "walks the talk," according to Brian Sant, Ceres' director of digital communications and marketing.

"We publish our own sustainability report," he says, "and we work hard to minimize our carbon footprint and promote employee wellness."

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Aug 2, 2017 1:47:56 PM

Company picnics or cookouts can be a lot of fun: sun, grass under your feet, tasty food, fun games. They are a great opportunity for employees to connect with colleagues who they may not usually cross paths with, for leadership to demonstrate interest and investment in employees, and for everyone to unwind a little during the dog days of summer. But while everyone enjoys tasty grilled fare and lemonade, the organizer is probably still on their toes, making sure it goes well. Though you might still be on call, with these three tips you should be able to sit back and enjoy, or at least not feel totally crazy.
