Employees overwhelmingly appreciate the culture at MoneyDesktop. “We're all a pretty driven crowd, so having a laid-back work environment and a lot of autonomy to accomplish our goals, in whatever manner we choose, works really well for us as a team,” says one.
Medium: Companies with 100 to 499 employees.
Nicholas & Company
Nicholas & Company is a food service distribution business.
Nicholas & Company has a unique culture. Every employee lives “philotimo,” a Greek word meaning “love of honor.” This corporate mantra means every employee has “a sense of love for family, community and country,” and believes “that we have an obligation to one another to make things better,” says Shari Skaja, human resources benefits and work/life specialist.
This motto shows through the company’s flexible scheduling to accommodate home and family life and by providing laptops and smart phones so employees may telecommute. In addition, Nicholas & Company provides free fruit and drinks, an onsite gym and a variety of health-related programs and contests. For many employees, that’s a big plus. One employee says, “It's the intent the company has towards improving its team members’ overall health that is very impressive.”
Scholarships for dependents and tuition reimbursement for employees along with company receptions and frequent family-focused events round out the organization’s unique offerings.
Bank of American Fork
Bank of American Fork is a community bank that provides financial products.
Balancing work and family life isn’t always easy, but many employees at Bank of American Fork agree that their employer does its best to make that balance work. Several employees cite the bank’s focus on family as just one thing that makes their company exceptional.
“I have never missed a parent teacher conference, school performance or any other activity my children are involved with because of [a] work conflict,” one employee says. “My employer offers the flexibility to participate in important family and community programs.”
The company’s additional perks include a 401(k) employer match, financial advisers who help with retirement planning and investment options, and profit sharing. The bank also covers the full cost of term life insurance for employees, and the board of directors regularly approves substantial annual bonuses for full-time and part-time employees. In addition, employees are treated to frequent company parties, health-related contests and opportunities to volunteer and donate to charities.
HealthEquity is a dedicated health savings trustee.
HealthEquity has taken several steps to ensure the company’s culture remains intact—including appointing a Culture Club that’s in charge of organizing company parties and family events. For many, the company’s culture is what entices them to stick around—that and the fact that everyone is called a “team member” instead of an employee.
“Our Culture Club hosts many small events and large events, so it feels like there is always something to look forward to,” one team member says. “Overall, I think HealthEquity truly cares about its team members.”
The company also provides a generous HSA match and incentives for people who go the extra mile to be healthy by parking far away or taking the stairs.
“HealthEquity takes pride in helping our employees,” says Natalie Atwood, vice president of people. “We created a program called Helping Hands where people can anonymously submit themselves, and team members within the company can donate a portion of their paycheck to that individual. This program has been extremely successful so far.”
