We have always been huge proponents of health and wellness at vCom, focusing on both physical health as well as mental health. So we were honored to be recognized this year by the San Francisco Business Times with a ranking of 4th place on the 2019 Small Business Wellness Award list for the SF Bay Area.
Whether it’s a ride to the farmers market for lunch on vCom bikes or taking meetings outside as ‘walking meetings’, our teams are encouraged to stay fit and healthy at every opportunity. As part of our company’s wellness initiative, we have quarterly fitness challenges where employees pick from a list of suggested challenges and can come together to work towards a common goal while also competing for a chance to win a fun fitness-related gift (and bragging rights of course!). And in our ongoing efforts to being health-conscious, healthy snacks and drinks are provided for all in our kitchens.
Employees are encouraged to share their knowledge by participating in financial and mental health informational sessions. We also have an Employee Assistance Program for employees to use whether it’s for stress, financial reasons, legal questions, etc.
A healthy organization starts with healthy employees. We are incredibly proud of this award and will continue to focus on promoting good health and a culture where every one of our employees feel empowered with a choice to lead a healthier lifestyle.
