The 44 healthiest companies to work for in the USA

Original blog by Abigail Thorpe on greatist.com

It’s common sense that happy people make for more productive and innovative employees. Yet 42 percent of workers have left a job due to a stressful environment, and another 35 percent have considered changing jobs due to stress, according to a 2014 Monster.com survey of 6,700 people. It’s high time companies start giving back to their employees—and we’re not referring to a plate of cookies or stale croissants every other year.

These 44 businesses go above and beyond, proving that a workplace that considers its employees’ health, happiness, and work/life balance vital to its own success isn’t so far-fetched. From gourmet cafeterias to rooftop beer gardens and unlimited vacation to two-story slides, these companies know what it means to pull together—and have fun—as a team.

Some cool examples:

  • Google provides on-site physicians and nurses for its employees, physical fitness programs, and on-site gyms.
  • Mayo Clinic is focused on helping its employees feel happy and motivated by offering an online wellness portal.
  • General Electric recently began offering unlimited vacation.
  • Microsoft has an on-campus spa, sports fields, flexible work hours; paid membership to full-service gyms; a full health package.
  • General Mills provides ergonomic trainings and wellness resources, including an on-site health clinic at its headquarters and gyms and sports teams at various offices.
  • Zappos has wellness coaches for their employees, they offer an on-site fitness center and weight management program encourages employees to stay in shape. Besides that; there are nap rooms at company HQ, because everyone knows siesta hour is a real thing.
