recruitment. “People can tell within the first couple of min- utes if the company culture they are walking into is one where they want to work,” he explains. A bright and airy of- fice with music, in a cool build- ing at a good location attracts potential employees who want to become part of this desirable culture. The environment and work atmosphere are compel- ling factors in employment decisions. Stewart meets his ambi- tious goals by looking beyond cost-per-square-foot and oth- er general building metrics. “There is so much more to a deal than that.” The location strategy should complement the business. “The worst pos- sible deal I can sign is really long term with no flexibility. I have no idea how the company will evolve in three years. We may be willing to pay more or absorb capital expenditure, as long as we have shorter terms,” Stewart explains. Stewart constantly attempts to align the location strategy with HR, and believes his var- ied background in real estate accounting helps him achieve this. His past experience with construction enables him do better research prior to making a deal. “I try to analyze if this is an easy building to build space mithtown, NY — Breslin Realty an- nounced the sale of an 11.5 acre property, located at the northwest corner of Ne- sconset Highway (SR 347) & Smithtown Islip Rd.

in. Can you get permits? Is it a union building or not? Those things all go into the mix, and help improve the deal.” To improve productivity, effi- ciency, and effectiveness, a real estate professional must think about how space is actually used. “We have spent the last year creating observation stud- ies, tracking where people are actually going in the office, how much time they are spending where and what they are doing. The results are really interest- ing,” Stewart explains. After one such study, they reduced the number of lounge areas 9 to 6 company. It encourages its employees to be productive throughout the day so that they can go home and enjoy life outside of the office. Indeed offers unlimited vacation time and allows people to work from anywhere. Perhaps contrary to popular belief, “People still like going to work to be collabora- tive in the office. It is easier to get more work done there,” Stewart explains. To attract talent, Indeed puts its offices in “really cool and attractive” locations. Indeed has opted for central business districts surrounded by vibrant communities and a wide selec- tion of interesting things to do. “Stuff outside of the office like cool parks, gyms and res- taurants are more important in downtown Silver Spring, announced that MetroPCS has signed a long-term lease. The national retailer will be join- ing Not Your Average Joe’s,
to our employees,” explains Stewart. This has also reduced the need for internal ameni- ties like gyms. Stewart also feels that co-working spaces like WeWork can make a very large impact on real estate in the future, potentially shift- ing the function from Real Estate to HR altogether. Such providers are revolutionizing the construction process by pre-building offices to client company standards. This re- duces the company’s capital expenditures and provides it with flexibility to grow or shrink. It also reduces the real estate component of hiring, which can now be handled by the co-working provider. There is definitely height- ened competition for good talented and real estate plays a prime role in attracting these qualified people. While salary and benefits are important, real estate is the most visible reason why an employee would want to work at one company versus another. Accordingly, driving hiring through this real estate and environmental feature can be crucial to a com- pany’s success.
