Accountancy firm Berdon has announced it has relocated its Long Island office to 100 Jericho Quadrangle in an effort to enhance its commitment to the Long Island market and its employees in the area.
The firm said the new space will continue to complement the firm’s existing location in Manhattan and has been designed to adapt to Covid-19 health and safety guidelines as well as the future needs of the workforce.
All workspaces are spaced six feet apart and collaboration centers, such as the conference rooms and huddle room, provide the ability to social distance while working together.
Berdon also revealed that the conference rooms are Wi-Fi-accessible and Zoom ready, so professionals can meet with clients as a team, wherever they are located.
The new office also features a ‘huddle room’, which features a high-top table around a computer monitor, and will aim to provide Berdon’s professionals the ability to “develop innovative solutions in a collaborative and tech-friendly space”.
In addition, the firm said it has factored in the “importance of work-life balance”, evidenced by the inclusion of a wellness room for employees to take time for their mental and physical health. The room contains a massage chair in addition to an exercise bike and yoga equipment, which complements the fitness center already located in the building. The room also serves the needs of working moms by providing a comfortable and private space for nursing mothers.
Co-managing partner, Mark Bosswick, CPA, J.D., LL.M, said: “We are eager to welcome employees and clients to our new office. Our Long Island location has always been essential for many of the Firm’s clients and staff who call Long Island home.
“Halfway between New York City and the Hamptons, and just two minutes off the Long Island Expressway, it’s also the perfect location for clients to stop and meet with us, either on their way out to the Hamptons or back to the city.”
He added: “As we look to continue to enhance our service to clients and the Long Island market in general, our new space includes features that will result in efficiency and innovation to improve our client service and help attract and retain the best talent on Long Island and in the New York Metro market.”
