We are thrilled to have been selected this year as one of the 2014 Bay Area’s Healthiest Employers by the San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
How did we win such a prestigious distinction? We made it a focus of our perks to be just a little bit better than most Bay Area startups. Here’s a breakdown of the healthy ones:
We cover 100% of health, dental and vision insurance.
We don’t want our team to have to worry about their health, so we offer one of the best PPO health plans we could find to all staff members, completely paid for by the company. Included in the health plan is a wellness program that allows you to subscribe and receive wellness information and tips. Our health plan also covers preventative care.
Free lunch 5 days a week.
We have healthy but delicious catering brought in 3 days a week provided by Square Meals, and otherwise everyone gets a company credit card to buy whatever they want for lunch (under $14) on the other two days. Again, we don’t want you to have to worry about lunch, or worry making a healthier choice even if it is a little more expensive. We also cover breakfast or dinner, if work requires you to come in extra early, or stay extra late.
Unlimited PTO, sick and vacation days.
“Just get your work done” is our mantra, so we don’t keep track of days off. If you’re sick, stay home. If it’s summer and you need a vacation, you probably deserve it. We trust everyone to get their jobs done, and beyond that, to take whatever time off they need, when they need it. A little work/life balance can go a long way to improving your health.
Healthy and happy snacks.
We have a stocked kitchen with a variety of snacks that include healthy things like fresh fruit and trail mix, and some “happy” stuff too. But hey, peanut butter M&Ms have peanuts in them, and those are healthy, right?
We encourage biking to work.
On-site bike storage is an easy win, but it’s worth noting that we’re a bike-friendly environment.
