Posted on November 22, 2021 in Announcements, Press Releases

The retail real estate owner and manager has now earned the honor for four consecutive years

CHICAGO, IL (November 18, 2021) — ShopCore Properties’ San Diego office has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by The San Diego Union-Tribune. This is the fourth consecutive year that ShopCore, an owner and manager of high-quality, well-located retail properties, has been so recognized.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, ShopCore leases and manages more than 60 best-in-class shopping centers covering approximately 21 million square feet in 15 states. The San Diego office, located at 10920 Via Frontera, oversees the management, marketing, and leasing of properties throughout the Western U.S., including California, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas. In the past year, the company has announced a series of programs to support its employees including the SEED (Support, Empower, Engage, Develop) to help female employees advance in their careers, and a staff-led Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee to champion a professional environment that is diverse, equitable, inclusive, and supportive.

“Following 2020, probably the most challenging year that anyone in retail real estate has experienced, our office came together in an extraordinary way in 2021 to support our markets, our tenants and, most importantly, each other,” said Jim Nakagawa, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “To be honored for the fourth year in a row is a testament to our philosophy: we want ShopCore to be a workplace that is fulfilling, engaging and fun. We are thrilled that our team is recognizing all of our efforts.”
