Palmer Holland Inc. supports a healthy lifestyle for its employee, and has implemented a company wellness program that promotes all areas of well-being — physical, mental, community, career and financial health.
Employees can earn free health, dental and vision benefits by participating in different healthy living activities. But, in order to earn the reward, people must complete at least one activity in each of the well-being areas the company lists. It is Palmer Hollands’s way of encouraging employees to have an all-around healthy lifestyle, which means more than just going to the gym every day.
Under the leadership of CEO W. Bryn Irvine, the company places a high significance on maintaining a work-life balance. To encourage employees to spend time with their families, they are allowed to have flexible work schedules and work remotely. The company has “use it or lose it” paid vacation and personal days to assure that employees spend quality time away from work. Employees are even encouraged to welcome their families to the home office.
The Palmer Holland kitchen often has spouses and children visiting over the lunch hour.
There is also a policy that prohibits employees from eating at their desks, which encourages people to get away from their work and eat lunch without a computer screen in front of them.
Palmer Holland sustains commitment to health, safety, security, and environmental performance with Responsible Distribution verification.
