Organizations that Go the Extra Mile for Their Employees

“I also really appreciate that they allow us to complete a survey each year to express what we like and don’t like. Then they always implement things from the survey, so we know they are listening,” adds the employee.

Another favorite is the company’s leadership training program. “Recently, they held an employee development class about reaching your dreams and getting rid of obstacles and bad habits—and then they opened it up to employees’ friends and family members! I was so impressed that this company would take the time to teach people who aren’t even part of CHG (and who wouldn’t benefit the company directly with new skills) and share this incredible class with them.”

CHG Healthcare Services is a healthcare staffing firm.

Mountain America Credit Union
Mountain America Credit Union boasts a lot of little perks to boost company morale. Several events are held each year, including Project Zero, which encourages employees to not gain weight over the holiday season, with the winning team receiving a prize. And many benefits extend to part-time employees too.

“As a part-time employee, I get some of the medical benefits. I have never worked for any company that offers part timers dental insurance, FSA or even paid time off. It’s been great here,” an employee says.

Many staff members appreciate the team-oriented atmosphere. “I love my coworkers. I think because Mountain America is such a fun and relaxed place to bank it is also reflected in the types of employees they hire. I know our members like it too! They are always commenting that this seems like a really great place to work and not one day since I started have I ever disagreed. This is the best job I’ve had!”

Mountain America Credit Union is a financial institution.

Nu Skin Enterprises
As a company dedicated to anti-aging wellness products, it is no surprise that Nu Skin Enterprises cares a lot about employee health too. From giving employees free products to the company’s Nu Health program, employee wellness is a priority. Nu Health rewards employees for healthy lifestyles, tests for risk factors, offers health counseling and health insurance premium discounts, and allows employees to earn additional vacation days.

The Nu Skin culture is important to employees and the company. David Daines, vice president of human resources, says, “It is part of our core values and our mission ‘To be a force for good throughout the world.’ Our company’s culture is the reason for our great success.”          Daines says Nu Skin is concerned about employees’ futures too. As part of its commitment to have all employees “retire financially stable,” Nu Skin provides 401(k) contributions, financial education and estate planning education.

Nu Skin is a direct-selling company that distributes personal care and nutritional products.

As a health insurance provider, SelectHealth is dedicated to enhancing its employees’ health and wellbeing. In addition to medical plans, the company offers dental, vision, and life and disability coverage to employees. Many departments have flexible work schedules, and all employees have access to an onsite fitness center that offers group classes—like yoga, spinning and core training—throughout the day.

“I enjoy the gym facilities and work environment. I also enjoy the healthy activities they offer and community events they notify us about—such as 5Ks, etc. I also appreciate the choice between benefits—we have more than one medical and dental plan to choose from,” says an employee.

Emotional health perks are free for employees and immediate family members, which include confidential counseling and emotional support. One employee notes, “I love being able to work for a company that gives back to the community and has a genuine care [for] their employees.”

SelectHealth is a health insurance company.
