Here's some good news: Medical services, backup childcare, massages, virtual cafeterias and even rooftop yoga are all on the way. It's part of an innovative program called Zo that Tishman Speyer launched this week, and the tenants of Rockefeller Center will be the first to enjoy the benefits.
"Zo represents a shift in the mindset of how we run our business," says Rob Speyer, chief executive officer of Tishman Speyer. "Our most important job is to serve the people who work in our buildings each and every day."
What does that mean for the 30,000 people who work at Rockefeller Center? Access to services such as emergency and backup childcare from Bright Horizons, travel planning through American Express Global Business Travel, on-site beauty services from GLAMSQUAD, and meditation sessions, massages, group fitness classes—that includes outdoor yoga on Rock Center's gorgeous rooftops—and team-building exercises by Exubrancy.
NYC Service, a division of the Office of the Mayor, will also help companies and employees find volunteer opportunities and organize sign-ups. HR services by Just Works and TriNet, Via rideshare passes and healthful food delivery by Savory—with options such as a virtual cafe and catering—are also part of the package.
Don't be surprised if your longtime company starts to feel more like a tuned-in tech brand, with all the perks, in the coming months. And if your work life starts to feel more accommodating to your personal well-being. We already know that Rock Center is one of the greatest places in world—and now it just got even better.
