Fish ponds and Weight Watchers are just two of the benefits Acuity offers its employees.
The insurance company’s Sheboygan, WI, headquarters has four ponds on its 115-acre campus, all stocked with bluegill, perch and bass.
“It’s just about giving employees the opportunity to bring their sons or daughters to fish in our ponds,” says John Signer, Acuity’s vice president of HR. The headquarters’ 650 employees can visit the ponds at any time, including weekends or during their lunch hours.
The organization also pays most of the fee for employees to participate in weekly Weight Watchers’ meetings, asking only for a small deposit.
Employees who reach their weight-loss goals get their deposits back. Those who make it halfway to their goals get half back, and the company donates the rest to charity.
