- Tishman Speyer, which owns and operates commercial real estate, has opened dedicated space for tenants that focuses on their health and well-being, Crains New York reports.
- The firm's first tenant wellness facility, which opened earlier this year at 30 Rockefeller Center, boasts a nurse practitioner who can treat workers and administer flu shots, as well as private rooms for yoga, meditation or naps. Bundled under the name Zo, services also include access to healthy food purveyors through a dedicated concept app.
- Tishman Speyer says it plans to expand the program's space by 10,000 square feet next year.
As employees become increasingly interested in wellness, employers are working to ensure that workplace benefits and amenities meet that demand.
Wellness is now part of office design planning, and some have gone so far as to include vegetable gardens and walking trails, design experts recently told HR Dive.
Employers will have to have a plan in place to assess the ROI of such offerings, but experts say these amenities can result in improved attendance, productivity and retention.
