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 a virtual celebration on September 30th and Cresa was included in the small (50-99 employees) category.
“We are honored to be recognized by the BBJ for the 14th year in a row. 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.
“At Cresa, we’ve worked to build a collaborative environment of engaged, motivated, and satisfied employees — employees who truly enjoy the 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.
