Companies continue to look to relocate downtown from outside the city, when they wish to attract younger technology talent. The profile of the new recruit is car-less and prefers walking or public transportation as their primary means of transportation.
A recent example of this migration is VMTurbo. The cloud technology company is moving from Burlington to 500 Boylston St. in the Back Bay.
The BBJ spoke with an HR executive at VMTurbo, and posted the following quote, indicative of the city-bound migration:
“Most of the employees that we hire are not people who own cars for the most part — they use the T,” [human resources executive Veronica] Curran said.
