Adviser Investments announced today that it has received the Best Wellness Employer Bronze Certification from Wellness Workdays. The firm was one of eight Bronze Certification recipients.
The Best Wellness Employer certification, awarded in collaboration with experts from Harvard Medical School and Wellness Workdays, recognizes the outstanding achievements of businesses which have created “best-in-class” wellness programs to engage employees in promoting well-being in the workplace.
Adviser Investments’ wellness activities and resources for employees include use of a modern fitness center; weekly guided meditations; CPR training; the step club’s stein-hoisting, plank and wall-sit competitions; and a “Biggest Loser” contest. Our office is also located on an easily accessible 0.8-mile walking loop that many employees enjoy circling when the weather is pleasant.
We are also proud to offer our employees a 50% discount to a Boston Sports Club fitness center in our office park, excellent medical insurance, in-office flu shots, a nursing/wellness room, ample maternity and paternity leave, standing computer workstations and a prepared foods vending machine in our office with healthy and vegan options.
As part of our ongoing efforts to promote health and self-care, Adviser Investments has a formal wellness committee led by peers. Membership is open to anyone who wants to participate and input is encouraged from colleagues up and down the organization. These measures and numerous others show our commitment to promoting our team members’ wellness, which in turn supports our goal of consistently delivering quality personalized service to each of our clients, day in and day out.
The commitment to wellness has been evident in our approach to the coronavirus. We have had an off-site action plan in place for years (and we’ve been reviewing and updating it each year), allowing us to work from home at a moment’s notice and continue to meet our clients’ needs and prevent the virus’ spread among our colleagues and the community.
We remain open for business, and all of our day-to-day operations are carrying on as normal.
Earlier this year, Adviser Investments was named among the “Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness” by the National Association for Business Resources for the second consecutive year.
