Happy employees translate into lowand low turnover, says Lisa Conklin, public relations manager for Replacements, the Greensboro, N.C., china replacement warehouse.
And the healthier they are, the better those numbers look.
For that reason, the 600-employee company has focused its work/life effort on employees' mental and physical well-being. How? The company:
- Employs a counselor on site to help workers deal with personal issues.
- Offers access to a full-time nurse, who treats headaches, sore throats and scrapes, and advises employees when their ailments warrant a trip to a doctor or hospital. She also organizes weight-loss, smoking cessation and other wellness programs.
- Allows employees to bring their kids to work on snow days and school holidays.
- Invites employees' dogs and cats to work, a practice the company says has helped reduce absenteeism and increase employee interaction.
