Cresa Receives Boston Business Journal's Best Places to Work Award
Firm honored for workplace excellence for the 13th year
The Boston office of Cresa, the world’s largest tenant-only commercial real estate firm, is proud to announce that it has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work by the Boston Business Journal (BBJ) for the thirteenth time. The award honors companies creating the most enjoyable and meaningful work environments, based on anonymous employee surveys collected from companies in Boston. The BBJ recognized this year’s Best Places to Work honorees during an event on Wednesday, June 19 at the Seaport World Trade Center. Cresa ranked eighth in the small (50-99 employees) category.
“It is an incredible honor to be recognized once again on this prestigious list, and among so many impressive and dedicated firms,” said Adam Subber, managing principal of Cresa’s Boston office. “The last year has been very exciting for us as a company. We moved into new offices at Atlantic Wharf and added several heavy hitters to our team, including Dan Collins, Matt George, and Vicki Keenan. We feel poised to continue to grow our consulting and advisory practice, and these three new hires will be integral in leading those efforts and strengthening the Boston team.”
Cresa lives by the mantra “do the right thing”: for its clients and for its staff. 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.
“At Cresa, we’ve worked to build a collaborative environment of engaged, motivated, and satisfied employees — employees who truly enjoy coming to work,” said Dan Sullivan, managing principal of Cresa’s Boston office. “Company culture embodies way more than just tearing down cubicles, finding the hot new office space, or offering decent health benefits. Culture is built, top to bottom, by emphasizing humanity and wellness, and by listening to and respecting every employee in the company – regardless of their position.”
The BBJ's Best Places to Work awards program is one of the BBJ’s most competitive programs in terms of how many companies participate. Companies are divided among five different categories — extra small (20 to 49 employees), small (50 to 99 employees), medium (100 to 249 employees), large (250 to 999 employees) and extra large (1,000 employees and over) — and winners are selected based on survey responses provided by employees.
