Community Vitality

Community Vitality

Enhance the wellbeing, health, and vitality of our tenants and the communities in which we live and conduct business.

Through our social initiatives we seek to create a lasting positive change. This includes a focus on employee-driven philanthropy, investing in healthy built environments, and building philanthropic partnerships with our communities.

In order to meet this objective, we focus on the following strategies:

  • Create a positive impact on the communities where we work and operate assets through employee-driven philanthropic giving and partnerships with our property managers.
  • Provide opportunities for our team to engage with the local community.
  • Pursue investment opportunities that revitalize communities. 
  • Develop the next generation of talent through an unparalleled internship program.


Volunteering

Harrison Street is committed to making a difference. We celebrate our employees reaching out with their time and talents to serve their community. Each year, we choose at least one firm-wide service project. We value the time to build bonds within our team and with the community.

Harrison’s Healthy Habits Wellness Program

Harrison’s Healthy Habits increases our knowledge about health matters, explores ways to eat healthier and improves our level of physical fitness.  The comprehensive HSRE Wellness program includes biometric health screenings, personal wellness assessments, educational sessions, wellness coaching and walking challenges throughout the year.

Employee Donation Matching Program 

HSRE’s Charitable Gift Match Program was created in 2013 to support the generosity of our employees by providing a dollar-for-dollar charitable gift match. Since the program's inception, Harrison Street employees have given to more than 60 different organizations that impact education, youth programs, animal welfare, health and hunger.

Mentoring

Harrison Street is committed to developing young adults by providing them with valuable, hands-on experience in the work place. We strive to give each intern experience that will help them succeed in their future careers.
