LogMeIn Receives 2014 Boston Preservation Achievement Award Winner

We’re very proud of our new headquarters located at 320 Summer St in Boston and excited to share that we’ve been named a winner of the 2014 Boston Preservation Achievement Awards in recognition for our renovation and restoration of the building! And to top it off, our project was also voted the fan favorite award winner by an online public vote.

The Preservation Achievement Awards are granted annually to honor outstanding achievements in historic preservation and compatible new construction in Boston. The LogMeIn building was originally constructed in 1904 as a warehouse for the Boston Wharf Company and was skillfully reinvented in 2013. LogMeIn, along with their project team which included Lincoln Properties, Spagnolo Gisness & Associates and Suffolk Construction, kept the historical character of the building intact while creating a high-tech, collaborative environment for its employees.

reconstructed the building’s interior as contemporary office space, retaining and exposing much of the original flooring, beams, brick, and stone.

When relocating to Boston’s Innovation District, we wanted to develop an environment within the historical nature of the building that would create a more compelling work environment for our existing employees while helping us attract new employees necessary to fuel our growth.  Since our move we have increased our employees by 60 percent, adding more than 150 new employees over the last 18 months Our open office space exemplifies the comfortable, collaborative and creative environment that technology employees expect and need in order to create great products.

We’re honored and thrilled to be recognized by the Preservation Alliance for our efforts in recreating this space. Scroll through the slideshow below for a look at our new Boston office!

3 Tips for Staying Productive During Your Snow Day

Working-from-Home

For those of us living in New England, it shouldn’t be a surprise that we’ve been hit with yet another snowstorm- making this the second storm this week, with one more on the horizon. According to various weather reports on Monday and Tuesday, we were expecting an accumulation of anywhere between 6-14 inches of snow. A big portion of the US is getting hit with Nika! Regardless, everyone left the office on Tuesday night prepared to work from home on Wednesday, just in case the threat of the wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain complicating our commute into work came true. Who would turn down the opportunity to work from home, in your pajamas anyway? – Not me!

So here we are, snowed in and working from home. For the sense of timeliness, I thought I would share some tips on how to stay productive, in the midst of working from your couch, watching the Today Show, coffee in hand.

  1. Stick to your To-Do list. I like to list out all the things I need to get done for the day and cross them off as I go. Creating a list of tasks will help keep you on track and reduce your ability to procrastinate. Another trick is to schedule out each hour of the day on your calendar so you know what you need to do when. The additional reminder alerts from Outlook are a nice nudge 😉
  2. Stay connected. When I’m working from home, I’m always on email and our company instant messaging service. But in addition to being available online, staying connected by using online meeting tools such as join.me can help you collaborate with co-workers, or anyone for that matter, whenever and from wherever. join.me makes it possible to hold that meeting to review the planning presentation you had scheduled for after lunch. You can share your screen, use the built in conferencing,  and even pass the presenter role if you needed to.
  3.  Give yourself breaks. Take a time out and let yourself indulge. Whether it is catching up on the Wall Street Journal or the latest post on Buzzfeed, it is ok! It will clear your head, and give your eyes a break from staring at a computer screen. We won’t give away your guilty pleasures, just keep them to yourself!

These should help you stay productive during your snow day. Do you have any other tips for staying productive when working from home? Please share with us in the comments below!

Until the next snowstorm…

It’s Time for Boston TechJam, Boston’s Tech Block Party…Are You In?

techjam

When we decided to move our corporate HQ to Boston’s Innovation District in April, getting more involved in the local tech community was a major driver.  So when MassTLC came looking for local tech companies to help with their inaugural tech block party known simply as TechJam, we jumped at the opportunity.  So what exactly is TechJam and why should our Boston readers care?

In a nutshell, Boston TechJam, which gets underway this Thursday, October 3rd, at District Hall on Northern Ave. is a collaboration between local tech companies, leading industry groups, the City of Boston, and anyone else who loves local innovation.  There’s going to be startup bands; food trucks; craft beer; artwork from the Fort Point Arts Community; and sponsor tents with games and giveaways.

What you should expect:

•1,000+ colleagues networking from the Boston technology and start-up scene

•Local bands

•Local artists showcasing their innovations with technology

•Local food and drink (21+ event)

Best part is that the $10 attendance fee for the event will be donated towards the Mass Computer Science initiative through MassTLC’s Education Foundation and MassCAN. Students get in for free.

We plan to be there en masse…and yeah, we’d love to see you.

Register online now at www.bostontechjam.org and we’ll see you there!

         

2013 LogMeIn Pedometer Challenge

The LogMeIn Wellness Program has been kicking around LogMeIn for 4+ years now.  What started out as eager employees simply supporting scheduled walks and runs, such as the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, the MSPCA Walk and the Breast Cancer Walk, has grown into a fabulous program.

In addition to providing complimentary healthy snacks and beverage options to our employees, LogMeInners have access to their own top notch fitness center and locker rooms complete with showers.

With the annual LogMeIn Health Fair coming up, we decided to plan a Pedometer challenge to coincide with the dates. Employees had a week long period to sign up and were split into teams of 6-7 employees with a team captain. We dished out LogMeIn branded pedometers and let the games begin!

Employees will check in at several points during the next few weeks and report their team’s average steps. The pedometers go up to 99,999 steps and so far we had three employees tick over that mark—an impressive feat!  I have also had reports of two going through the washing machine and one falling into a lake while canoeing but all are still tracking accurately.

All in all, we’re off to a great start. Happy stepping, everybody!
