WORK HARD. EAT WELL.

From farm-to-table dining to up-and-coming artists, Hearst is committed to helping colleagues work well, eat well and find inspiration to live creative, more balanced lives.

What do you say first? The iconic Hearst Tower is the first Gold & Platinum LEED-certified tower in New York and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Lord Norman Foster’s first sustainable structure in the city. And it’s already designated a landmark, the first of the 21st century.

Local farmers. Global flavors. With its brick oven and sushi station, featured recipes from its latest magazines and visits by the city’s hottest chefs, CAFE 57 provides a first-class dining experience (without the first-class price).

If the Tower’s atrium doesn’t make your heart race, its gym will. With 9,000 square feet and state-of-the-art machines, “Box & Burn” classes to Bootcamps, Physical Therapy, Massages and free workout gear, nothing is overlooked. (Except Central Park.)

We don’t just have your back. We make it feel better. With Pharmacy Concierge Services, Flu Shots, Dermatology Screenings and a Lactation Room, Hearst endeavors to keep its employees well (and feel well taken care of).

Espresso meets expression in the galleries’ lounge, where colleagues can wind down after enjoying access to exclusive exhibitions, whether a retrospective of legendary magazine talents or a survey of current artists.
