Global employee engagement pioneer continues growing in U.S. with new office to make Boston –– and beyond –– a better place to work

Reward Gateway, the employee engagement platform that enables companies to have radically different relationships with their people, today announced the opening of its newest office in Boston. Located at 141 Tremont St., overlooking Boston Common, the move represents the company’s accelerated growth in the U.S. market.

 

Employees in sales and service, operations, learning and development, and product success will call the U.S. hub their home. Built with employee engagement principles at its core, the office highlights Dieter Rams’ 10 Principles of Good Design and tells a visual story of Reward Gateway’s mission and values. This allows team members to champion engagement on a daily basis in an environment and workspace that align with the company’s goals. The space is designed around distinctive “work modes,” or areas that are conducive to different types of work aligned to company values, rather than fixed desks, offering agility in the way work gets done and increased collaboration.

But team members aren’t the only ones who will benefit from this unconventional office design. Reward Gateway is extending the use of its dedicated event space to clients and others in the greater Boston community of HR, and related tech and communication industries committed to making the world a better place to work. In addition to hosting industry meetups and events, Reward Gateway expects the space will meet the occasional needs of those looking for away days, board meeting space, or simply a place to work when visiting the area.

Doug Butler, CEO of Reward Gateway says:

“We’re excited about the move to our new permanent U.S. office, as it symbolizes our extraordinary growth globally, and our commitment to being part of the thriving local business community. We look forward to continuing our mission of making the world a better place to work here in Boston.”

Jo Attenborough, People Director of Maplin says:

“The Reward Gateway office is welcoming, motivating, and engaging. “Being able to use the office for our own meetings, as well as joining industry events, makes us feel like part of a greater employee engagement community. The space is a great example of how Reward Gateway partners with its clients and the HR community.”  

Tom Hopcroft, President and CEO of Mass Technology Leadership Council (largest non-profit tech association in the region) says:

“It is fantastic to see a company with such a positive mission investing in the Boston HR and technology community. “At MassTLC, we work with some of the most innovative employers in the greater Boston area. Having Reward Gateway open its doors for networking and collaboration among the area's top talent will help us extend our mission of accelerating growth and innovation in the Massachusetts technology ecosystem.”

The Boston office has several unique design features:

  • Distinctive work modes –– Agile workspace features areas for collaboration, teamwork, and private thinking in recognition of diverse working styles. Forget fixed desks. Employees have the freedom to choose where to sit depending on what they’re doing. Quiet reflection rooms are available for focus and thought. A state-of-the-art video studio supports the production of transparent and human communications for its employees and customers. Meeting rooms are equipped with the latest cable and controller-free video-conferencing, helping employees collaborate with the 350-person global workforce located across the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Australia, Macedonia, and the U.S.
  • Hotel-standard gender-neutral bathrooms –– Reward Gateway believes that a workplace built for and by diverse employees will spur success. The office offers hotel-standard gender-neutral bathroom facilities accessorized by Danish company Vipp with products from Aesop and ghd. As a beacon employer offering cutting-edge benefits, the company also offers a year’s paid parental leave for any primary caregiver, regardless of gender.

  • Best practice for good design –– With the company mission and values driving design, Reward Gateway harnessed Dieter Rams’ 10 Principles for Good Design. These same principles are also used to create its products. According to Rams, good design is: innovative, useful, aesthetic, understandable, unobtrusive, honest, long lasting, thorough down to the last detail, environmentally friendly, and uses as little design as possible.

Additionally, the office has five separate furniture pieces that are in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    • Vitsoe 606 Shelving System, 1960
    • Vipp Pedal Bin (Model 15) by Holger Nielsen
    • Oxford Chair, 1965 by Arne Jacobsen
    • Series 7 Chair (Model 3107) by Arne Jacobsen
    • Haller Table, 1963 by USM Haller    

The Boston office design models the London hub, which now serves as a case study in employee collaboration and consultation. A consistent design is intended to unify the global workforce, promoting greater collaboration and connectedness. To learn more about Reward Gateway, click here
