Consequently, the administration is currently perceived by the authorities as the official body that represents the companies in Har-Hotzvim.
The authorities are currently discussing several programs which will create significant changes in traffic arrangement and parking in Har-Hotzvim. This matter has an utmost importance and we must invest our best efforts to influence and protect the interests of all of us. In addition, we are exploring the possibility of building additional parking lots and upgrading the public transport that reaches Har-Hotzvim hi-tech park.
No company can and no company wants to act independently in these areas.
Concurrently, the administration is doing activities in the public sphere designed to improve the standard of living in Har-Hotzvim: creating a beautiful landscape by gardening the park, placing seating areas, blocks stratification and the renewal of the signs posted at each building.
Also, we recently worked on the reduction of approximately 1,200,000 NIS property taxes paid by companies from Har-Hotzvim by fixing the classification in the municipality, we held professional forums (procurement, human resources, safety and security) and we upgraded the newsletter, which positions Har-Hotzvim as a leading hi-tech park in Israel. The park’s website and the Jobs section inside – which yields very good results – have been upgraded as well.
We provide specialized services to Har-Hotzvim employees: Hundreds of employees enjoyed the leisure and culture benefits we proposed by leveraging the purchasing power of all the employees in Har-Hotzvim .
