Tishman Speyer, recognizing the importance of work-life balance in today’s commercial world, has recently unveiled a comprehensive suite of amenities and services for its tenants.
Through its new program, dubbed Zo, Tishman Speyer will offer tenants amenities focused on wellness, backup child care, on-site health screenings and medical services, travel planning, community volunteer engagement, personal grooming, rideshares, human resources services, and food and catering.
The services are being introduced at Rockefeller Center in New York City and will eventually reach the entirety of the company’s global portfolio by the end of the year. The services will be available to all of the companies that lease space in Tishman Speyer’s buildings and will also be made available to their employees directly.
This move allows smaller companies in Tishman Speyer owned buildings to experience the type of amenities that are often times only offered by large companies.
In Rockefeller Center alone, there are over 300 companies that employ 30,000 people. 80,000 people work in Tishman Speyer buildings in New York City.
Below is a list of the services offered through Zo and a brief description from Tishman Speyer of each amenity.
Emergency/Backup Child Care
Bright Horizons, the world's leading provider of employer-sponsored child care, will offer backup care options to small- and mid-size companies, at a fraction of the cost of negotiating directly with a child care provider. Companies will be able to make a set number of emergency or backup child care visits available to their employees.
Tenants and their employees will be able to plan and book travel through American Express Global Business Travel (GBT), the leading corporate travel provider with operations in nearly 120 countries. GBT is in the business of transporting a company’s most vital and valuable resources - their employees. Tishman Speyer tenants and their employees will benefit from the global scale of GBT which will enable them to realize savings and improved productivity together with exceptional traveler care.
GLAMSQUAD the on-the-go pro team for hair, makeup and nails, will offer high-quality beauty services. Continuing its mission to empower female professionals, the company will provide a service that allows them to experience beauty on their own terms. GLAMSQUAD’s team of elite hair stylists, makeup artists and nail technicians is meticulously selected and curated to guarantee consistent, high-quality results and a superior experience during every appointment so employees can look and feel amazing.
Exubrancy will help organizations maximize employee health and well-being via in-office meditation sessions, group yoga and fitness classes, massages, and team building activities. Tenant companies can contract with Exubrancy to provide programs within their own office spaces or in designated Tishman Speyer locations at Rockefeller Center. This is an opportunity for companies, even small ones, to create employee incentives, hold team-building exercises, or simply provide convenience to their employees. It speaks to the philosophy that an employee who feels better is more productive.
Civic Engagement (Corporate Social Responsibility and Volunteerism)
For several years, Tishman Speyer has organized volunteer days of service for its internal staff through NYC Service, a division of the Office of the Mayor, which promotes volunteerism and service as a catalyst for civic engagement. As part of Zo, Tishman Speyer – in partnership with NYC Service – will identify, scope, and secure volunteer projects with community-based organizations for tenant companies and their employees. Tishman Speyer will also organize sign-up and handle the logistics, providing organizational capacity that smaller tenants might not have.
Tishman Speyer will be working with two leading professional employer organizations (PEOs) Justworks and TriNet to offer industry-tailored HR solutions at a discount. Justworks is a tech-forward, all-in-one platform that automates and manages benefits, payroll, HR, and government paperwork to help business owners take care of their teams. TriNet is a strategic partner to small and midsize businesses for HR, payroll, employee benefits, employment law compliance and risk mitigation.
Via, a leading rideshare company, will provide a unique monthly pass product for tenant companies. This will provide savings for tenants who pay for expensed rides, either after-hours car or to the airport, and additional benefits for employees such as subsidized commutes and discounted fares during weekends.
Savory, a healthy lifestyle and clean-eating food delivery company, will provide a suite of food services, and has been pre-cleared for direct access to participating tenants' floors to provide convenient meals in minutes. Savory functions like a virtual café and offers everything from individual meal delivery, meeting and office-wide catering, office pantry management, and larger event catering.
