Best Companies to Work For

December 2, 2014

Excellent health benefits are keeping employees happy at EMC Corporation, where they kick in on an employee’s first day. “The medical insurance is better than any company I have ever seen,” says an employee. “It has saved me so much money already.”

EMC’s culture is second to none. Recent activities include ice cream socials, summer barbecues, miniature golf tournaments and a summer beer bash, all of which have allowed employees to share in the success of their teams and the company.

Add to these benefits the perks of tuition reimbursement and employee recognition, and EMC provides a well-rounded package.

  • Onsite counseling with an experienced therapist
  • Three days of paid time off for community service
  • Annual wellness clinics and subsidized gym memberships

Mountain America Credit Union

Mountain America Credit Union understands its employees are its most valuable asset. That’s why the company covers 93 percent of employee benefits, offers bonuses, hosts “brown bag” seminars six times a year to educate employees on maintaining a healthy work/life balance, and holds time management workshops. The company also offers financial wellness training, and a generous 401(k) match and educational classes for employees round out MACU’s offerings.

   “MACU is great to help their employees by matching contributions that the employee makes to his/her 401(k) up to 5 percent. I have never worked for an employer that would match 401(k) contributions, let alone match it at 5 percent,” says an employee.

  • A company-funded short-term disability program for parental leave
  • Workplace wellness includes yoga, seated massage, a hiking club for summer, winter family hikes and annual
    health assessments
  • Annual “Bring Your Child to Work Day,” complete with water slides, an executive dunk tank, games, cotton candy and a money machine

Nicholas and Company

A substantial focus on work/life balance is just one of the perks at Nicholas and Company, where employees also enjoy an onsite gym, frequent massages, leadership training and a generous health and 401(k) package.

“They have a gym on location to make things easier to stay in shape,” says an employee. “They offer massages in the office every other week. They provide reduced prices on healthy salads and shakes. They celebrate successes and quickly get over losses. [It’s a] wonderful environment in which to work.”

Nicholas and Company also boasts a flexible work schedule, Financial Peace University for employees and monthly recognition of employees who have achieved important goals.

  • A full-time, onsite wellness coordinator to design and monitor nutrition and training programs for employees
  • An onsite childcare room
  • Pick-up and delivery of dry cleaning twice a week


At SelectHealth, employees live by the values of integrity, trust, excellence, accountability and mutual respect. These values are just part of what makes working at SelectHealth great.

Employees are shown appreciation frequently through monthly outstanding employee awards, an annual employee appreciation week and recognition for years of service with the organization. In addition, after 90 days of service, each employee is invited to a breakfast with members of the executive team to gather feedback and share stories. “The company is always trying to find new ways to show the employees that they matter,” says one employee.

Employees are also offered flexible work hours, an onsite gym, a snack bar and the opportunity to earn bonuses.

“I enjoy the forward thinking of the organization and planning for the future. I also enjoy the focus on the customer and getting things done the right way so we can provide the best service to our consumers.”

USANA Health Sciences

Wellness is an important aspect at USANA Health Sciences, where employees have benefits ranging from an onsite gym to available fruits and vegetables in the break room. The company also provides an onsite basketball court, climbing wall, sand volleyball court, and comprehensive wellness program with fitness classes and incentives.

“The wellness program extends into stress management and healthy eating as well as encourages us to try new things and get out there,” one employee says. “Then once we have done these, we get paid for doing it. You can’t beat this program.”

The company also offers a 401(k) match, great health insurance, yearly profit sharing and flexible working hours.

“I love the profit-sharing program. It motivates employees to work together more efficiently. I also love the wellness programs available. I am able to get a great work out in every day. I have become much healthier as a result.”
