New location chosen to offer collaborative work spaces and attract top talent
ATLANTA, Ga. (January 23, 2019) – Lucas Group, ranked third on Forbes’ Best Professional Recruiting Firms list for 2018, announced that its Washington, D.C. office has moved to a new, larger downtown location. Located at 1110 Vermont Avenue in the Central Business District, the expanded office provides a contemporary and collaborative workspace for Associates in the Accounting & Finance, Legal, Military Transition and Human Resources (HR) practice areas to further connect with clients and candidates.
The fast-growing branch also plans to add a Manufacturing practice later this year. In a recent report by WalletHub, Washington, D.C. ranked No. 8 out of more than 180 cities as the best place to find a job in 2019.
“The D.C. office has been on an amazing run, posting strong profits with great branch revenue growth year over year,” said Jim Lose, Managing Partner of the Washington D.C. Military Transition practice. “With its communal social area and conference facility, this state-of-the-art, collaborative office will allow our clients and candidates to more easily connect with us face-to-face and prepares Lucas Group to continue to attract elite talent in the D.C. area as the office further accelerates its growth.”
Situated two blocks from The White House and in close proximity to public greenspaces, the building boasts high connectivity with a Walk Score of 98 and is a six-minute stroll from the Metrorail Blue Line, Orange Line and Silver Line via the McPherson Square station. On the first floor of the building, employees can also enjoy easy access to Starbucks and Lincoln, a chef-driven restaurant with seasonal American menu.
“With the central downtown location of this building, our Associates can step outside to take a walk or grab lunch at any of the many nearby restaurants,” say Carolina King, Chief People Officer of Lucas Group. “We encourage our Associates to lead wholesome, fun and productive lives and here they can enjoy a new gym, a yoga studio that offers two free classes per week and an arcade/game room, for a bit of healthy competition during the day.”
“We are thrilled to have a new space that reflects the energy and enthusiasm of Lucas Group’s D.C. team,” said Ann Reiling, Managing Partner of the Washington D.C.
