Cresa Boston Named a Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe

The Boston office of Cresa, the world’s largest occupier-focused commercial real estate firm, is proud to announce that it has been recognized as one of the Top Places to Work for 2020 by The Boston Globe in the small company category.

Top Places to Work recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employee opinions about their company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. The employers are placed into one of four groups: small, with 50 to 99 employees; medium, with 100 to 249 workers; large, with 250 to 999; and largest, with 1,000 or more.

“It is an honor to be recognized once again by The Boston Globe as one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts,” said Adam Subber, managing principal at Cresa. We strive to make every employee feel like a valued member of our team and we realize it is thanks to their hard work and dedication that make us the company we are today,” said Adam Subber, managing principal of Cresa’s Boston office. “It has been anything but “business as usual” this year and we are proud of how our employees have stepped up to service our clients.”

Cresa lives by the mantra “do the right thing”: for its clients and for their colleagues. Part of this philosophy extends outside of the office, as the company embraces numerous charities such as the Greater Boston Food Bank, Rosie’s Place, Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics and others.This charity work allows the company to give back to the community but also to rally together internally, promote team building, and build morale.

“This was a particularly challenging year to be a great place to work, and the companies that made our list went above and beyond to keep their employees safe, engaged, and cared for,” said Katie Johnston, the Globe’s Top Places to Work editor. “From offering help with childcare to making the workplace more equitable to holding virtual talent shows, these employers showed that the best get better in crisis.”

The rankings in Top Places to Work are based on confidential survey information collected by Energage (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention, from more than 80,000 individuals at 285 Massachusetts organizations. The winners share a few key traits, including offering progressive benefits, giving their employees a voice, and encouraging them to have some fun while they’re at it.
