Company celebrates with ‘Open House’ Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Alongside New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Local Officials
MADISON, N.J., July 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Anywhere Real Estate Inc. (NYSE: HOUS), a global leader in residential real estate services (formerly known as Realogy Holdings Corp.), today unveiled the company’s newly renovated headquarters designed to facilitate the future of work. Known as the Madison Hub, the redesign creates more flexible collaboration and innovation workspaces for Anywhere℠ employees across the enterprise, including its portfolio of renowned brands: Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate, CENTURY 21®, Coldwell Banker®, Corcoran®, ERA®, and Sotheby’s International Realty®.
"As we enter the next chapter of our transformation, attracting and accelerating growth of great talent is core to the Anywhere strategy," said Ryan Schneider, Anywhere president and chief executive officer. "I am incredibly excited about how our newly redesigned Madison Hub will not only empower our employees to connect, collaborate, and drive results in a remote environment but also lead the industry into the future of work."
Having adopted a remote-first work model, Anywhere has embraced a talent philosophy in which many enterprise roles work remotely where feasible. The redesigned Madison Hub mixes individual ‘hoteling’ with tech-enabled collaboration spaces, along with training and learning studios and event spaces for deepening employee and stakeholder connections. While there are no permanent offices, including for company executives, the Anywhere brands each have dedicated space that showcases their unique values and visual identity for franchise sales prospects, affiliated brokers and agents, and employees. Other Hub amenities include a grab-n-go café and coffee bar, wellness facility, technology services counter, and outdoor social space.
Today, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Bob Conley, Mayor of Madison, N.J., joined local officials and members of the Anywhere management team to debut the Madison Hub for employees. Attendees were invited to tour the new space and engage in more than 20 celebratory experiences hosted by the Anywhere portfolio of brands, along with functional and business teams and employee resource groups. Featured stops along the Open House route included a live artistic showcase of Anywhere culture and values, wellness and productivity demos, milestone brand anniversary celebrations, photo and video booths, and a variety of games and activities.
"I am happy to join CEO Ryan Schneider and the entire Anywhere team for today’s ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly remodeled Anywhere headquarters in our very own Madison, NJ. As every real estate professional knows, the three most important words in real estate are "location, location, location." By recommitting to Madison, Anywhere is proving that New Jersey is the perfect location for any business, the perfect location for your employees and their families, and the perfect location for their clients," said Governor Phil Murphy.
