New York-based public relations firm Weber Shandwick is helping its em­­ployees recharge mind, body and soul through an array of programs that en­­courage them to engage in new experiences, take care of themselves and keep in touch with one another. Among the programs are:

No Boundaries: Participants get a stipend and an extra paid week off to experience a new activity that enriches them professionally and personally. No Boundaries participants have gone swimming with tiger sharks in the Bahamas, volunteered in a Nicaraguan health clinic, taken a photo journey in South Dakota and embarked on a culinary tour of Tuscany.

Participants contribute to a blog so they can share their experiences with their colleagues.

Body, Soul, Mind: The firm reimburses employees for health, wellness and cultural activities throughout the year.

Making A Difference: Weber Shandwick encourages employees to participate in ­organized community-outreach programs.

MyWeberShandwick: An internal social sharing and community-building platform allows colleagues around the globe to collaborate and communicate.
