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.
Contact: Jennifer Norton of Weber Shandwick, (212) 445-8314.
