Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building healthier communities through partnerships with government, foundations, businesses and community-based organizations. PHMC’s new headquarters and open office environment support its mission to create and sustain healthier communities, and underscore its philosophy that design drives culture and culture drives service. “We focus not just on where we work, but also how we work together to create meaningful change and further positive outcomes within our organization and the communities we serve,” says president and CEO Richard J. Cohen.
WORDS OF WISDOM: “The stronger person is not the one making the most noise, but the one who can quietly direct the conversation toward defining and solving problems.” – Aaron T. Beck
PHMC’s new office space encourages movement, with a grand staircase connecting multiple floors. Wireless capabilities allow employees the choice to work in various locations throughout the office, and treadmill workstations on each floor allow for exercise periods. PHMC reduced the number of individual offices to include only senior management, and added open lounge areas to promote collaboration.
