Forest City associates have joined together with residents at our apartment communities across the country to rally for kindness – one act at a time – to inspire one another and enrich the lives of neighbors.

"Kindness is contagious," said Krissy Novotny, Forest City's customer experience quality manager. "By doing good, we're creating rewarding, memorable experiences for our residents while embodying our 'How may we help you?' service motto."

Since the program began in September, more than 800 acts of kindness have been shared on forestcitycares.net and through social media posts using the #ForestCityKindnessRally hashtag.

Vocon, a leading national architectural and design firm, and Forest City's internal project team received a 2018 AIA Ohio Honor Award for their efforts. 

In designing our space, the combined team began with the framework of an outdoor mixed-use community and brought it inside to create different themed areas throughout our floor plan. The award committee noted the design team's use of shared spaces, as well as the connectivity of each of the company's floors.

The American Heart Association recently released the results of the 2018 Workplace Health Achievement Index, and Forest City has earned recognition at the Silver level for taking significant steps to build a culture of health in the workplace.

Forest City's comprehensive Well-being Program addresses all aspects of health – physical, emotional and financial. The program's incentives encourage associates to participate in activities meaningful to them.

As part of Forest City's commitment to our local communities and core values, the company is launching a new volunteer time off (VTO) program that will provide associates with up to eight paid hours a year to volunteer with nonprofit organizations.

The program is currently being piloted in the company's corporate headquarters in Cleveland, and will launch nationwide on January 1, 2019.

"One of the ways our people help bring 'the power of place' to life is through their direct involvement with local nonprofits and participation in impactful volunteering opportunities," said Kristen Grabenstein, manager of Community Relations for Forest City. "We see the introduction of our VTO program as an important next step in supporting our associates and local communities."

Forest City has received two separate honors today – June 26 – further establishing the company's credentials as a sustainability leader in the real estate industry.

The countless smiling faces tell the story – this year's Community Day was another resounding success!

Nationwide, ​Forest City associates are set to celebrate the company's 15th annual Community Day on Friday, May 18, by partnering with local nonprofits to complete service projects in many of the communities we serve.
