From the top of the tallest buildings to street-level storefronts, Downtown Raleigh has a diverse, loyal, and talented workforce that’s foundational to our community.
This May, we’re recognizing these workers by hosting employee-centered events and sharing resources to make the most out of one’s experience while employed downtown. Our Employee Resource Hub includes a guide to lunch restaurants, volunteer opportunities, running/biking routes through DTR, and more.
The month’s festivities come together for DTR Employee Appreciation Week May 16–20 when DRA & community partners will treat employees to a week of activities, free perks, and community networking opportunities.
Along with DTR Employee Appreciation Week, we’re hosting Lunch Mini-Markets and Spring Fitness Series classes each week until June.
