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.

Meet Local Cookbook Author/Illustrator Lauren K. Stein

Posted by Coley Ward on Feb 26, 2018 9:47:39 AM

Lauren Stein is a local journalist who was inspired by her young daughter to write a cookbook -- with a twist. All of the recipes in "Fresh Made Simple" are illustrated.

"I wanted to create something that we would enjoy looking at together," Stein says. "She would begin to learn colors and shapes and foods, and at the same time it would actually give me ideas for what to cook for our family."

Stein's idea evolved into a collection of everyday recipes, easy to prepare, for the whole family to enjoy.

"The drawings are so playful, but at the same time very instructional with the cooking action and ingredients all in there," she says. "My hope was cooks of all ages and skills would be inspired to cook something fresh and delicious."

Here's some more about Stein, her cookbook, and how she's teaching her kids to love cooking and eating good food. You can enjoy three of her illustrated recipes for mushroom dishes here.

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."

Member Spotlight: Joy Huang

Posted by Coley Ward on Feb 5, 2018 8:16:00 AM

A couple of years ago, Joy Huang started her Instagram account (@joyosity) to share photos of her culinary creations and travel explorations. Last year, she challenged herself to post one recipe photo a day. Since then, her audience has grown and she now has over 6,000 followers.

She says joining cooking clubs on Facebook (like the Food52 cookbook club and baking club) gave her a lot of inspiration for what to make. Occasionally some of her posts would be picked up by other larger accounts like @Food52, @marthastewart, @thekitchn, @foodandwine, and @thefeedfeed which brought a lot more exposure to her account. One unique aspect of her Instagram photos is that they are all taken and edited with her iPhone.
