With all the buzz around Marissa Mayer’s decision to kill telecommuting, it’s an interesting time to think about the effect office space has on culture. Throughout the years of my career in building world class teams at startups (or reinvigorating them at more established companies), I have always been a big believer in the importance of a connected culture – one where team members are not only physically able to come together (perhaps not every day but certainly a few days per week), but one where their votes count in almost every aspect of the business. I don’t hire people, we hire people. And I believe having an office space conducive to working together and collaborating is key to making sure our QPIDians perform at their maximum potential.
That’s why I’m excited to announce that we’ve just moved to a new space that will allow us to collaborate better than ever as we grow QPID this year. You can now find us at One Financial Center in Boston – the hub of activity and collaboration for our talented team, as well as many other companies such as Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky, and Popeo, Gemvara and a host of other law firms, CPA firms, tech and financial services companies. In addition to being the seventh-tallest building in Boston, it is home to amenities (Starbucks, anyone?) that welcome our employees to work, and is touted as “the most accessible building in Boston.” After all, we’re right next to South Station and Boston’s newest great neighborhood, The Seaport Area. Making the office an enjoyable place to be – and to get to – is the first start in keeping team members engaged and happy. I am excited for what’s ahead for our team, and invite you to stop by and visit us – or stay tuned for details on our upcoming Open House. You can also view some of our candid photos from the move – and keep up with our other “moves” – on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.
