Best Companies to Work For

December 2, 2014

The company lets new employees begin accumulating paid time off immediately when they start working. The company also has a PTO donation policy, which lets employees donate their time off to co-workers who have emergencies but don’t have enough PTO of their own.

The company also has quarterly “town hall” meetings with the CEO, where company and individual successes are celebrated and employees are kept abreast of the company’s strategy and goals.

  • Free food, including bagels, birthday lunches and candy
  • Onsite gym that’s accessible 24 hours a day
  • Company-sponsored employee assistance program

Workers Compensation Fund

At Workers Compensation Fund, flexible work schedules allow employees the freedom to take care of their personal needs and work in a manner that works for them and their families. Not only does flexibility play a major role at the company, but so does culture.

“WCF loves a good party,” says one employee. “Whether it is watching a movie on the field at Rio Tinto for all WCF employees and their families, or a day at Lagoon to celebrate another great year, WCF looks for fun and unusual ways to celebrate our success.”

This culture, along with an onsite gym, tuition reimbursement and employee recognition programs, gives WCF an excellent environment.

  • Quarterly group service projects with different nonprofit organizations
  • Home offices for over 130 employees
  • “Extras” like breakfasts, lunches, and turkeys and gift cards around the holidays

Young Automotive Group

Having well trained employees is a big deal for Young Automotive Group. The company employs a corporate trainer who offers training programs for employees in-person and online. The trainer covers a number of topics such as management training, time management, understanding customers and delegation techniques. It also provides education to employees to keep them up-to-speed on what’s happening in the automotive industry. “This company emphasizes training and goes above and beyond offering trainings that benefit our working life as well as our home life,” says an employee.

Serving the community is also important to the company. Each dealership within the group is required to donate a minimum of $10,000 to a local cause annually.

  • 100 percent education reimbursement for job-relevant programs
  • Special employee pricing on all of the vehicles in the company’s inventory
  • Eagle Awards for every member of the sales staff who maintains a certain monthly sales average throughout the year

Large Companies

Big-D Construction

A “Tarzan yell” is a frequent occurrence at Big-D construction, where big project wins are celebrated by employees gathering at the railings of the central stairwell at every floor and letting out a collective yell. But this fun-loving culture isn’t the only benefit to working for Big-D.

The company also contributes to employees’ health savings accounts, provides tuition reimbursement, encourages employees to follow its wellness program, recognizes one employee for outstanding work each quarter, and provides a reimbursement for those who take public transit to work.

  • An annual dinner at The Grand America to celebrate five-year employment milestones
  • An annual “Women Thinking Big” event that shows appreciation for women working in the construction industry

CHG Healthcare Services

“CHG Healthcare really cares about their employees,” says one employee, though those sentiments are echoed by most who work for CHG. Excellent health benefits, including an onsite medical clinic and healthy pregnancy program, as well as a 401(k) program with a generous company match and tuition reimbursement highlight just a few of the reasons why CHG cares.

The company also helps employees build an emergency savings account, provides adoption assistance, and even offers pet insurance. CHG also boasts a “fun room” complete with pool tables, shuffle board and arcade games.

Employees are also always encouraged to volunteer and give, even having the opportunity to donate a portion of their accumulated PTO to fellow employees who are facing a difficult period in their lives.

Employee Network Groups allow employees to pursue personal passions in the workplace, such as reading, golf, photography and board games, with up to $500 provided annually by CHG

  • One day of paid volunteer time off each year
  • A free smoking cessation health coaching program for all employees and spouses, in addition to over-the-counter nicotine-replacement drugs and a $100 incentive for employees who complete the program
