We own properties in more than 42 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) across the United States and, with RMR, pride ourselves on involvement within these communities. Each year, we allocate $25,000 of our corporate budget to charitable donations. RMR also is actively involved in community outreach and charitable giving. For instance, RMR has historically sponsored an annual charitable gift giving program as a result of which, since the program’s inception in 1999, RMR employees have donated over $1.7 million to charitable organizations across the United States.
RMR also encourages all of its employees to support causes and organizations in local communities. For example, in 2015, employees at RMR’s headquarters participated in a Thanksgiving Food Drive contributing over 2,700 pounds of food donations to the Greater Boston Food Bank. In addition, the RMR corporate office enthusiastically participated in the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center’s holiday toy drive. At our Capitol Place property in Sacramento, CA, RMR employees organized a “Giving Tree” where staff and tenants purchased gifts for children at the Sacramento Children’s Hospital. Additionally, a holiday “Toys for Tots” campaign was organized by RMR at our 1401 Rockville Pike office in Maryland.
Strong minds, strong hearts, strong culture is an emerging theme at RMR. An increasing number of RMR employees are taking advantage of wellness programs that not only challenge employees to care for themselves but also connect with their colleagues in the process.
- Teams of RMR employees throughout the country participated in the “Summer Walking Challenge.”
- A significant number of employees participated in RMR’s annual Flu Shot program.
- Educational seminars are regularly available to employees on a range of topics, including available 401K benefits and Microsoft Office software programs.
