EverCheck, a leading provider of license verification and compliance services to the healthcare industry, has been named one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work of 2016. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. These companies encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious, and prioritize giving back to the community. Created in conjunction with the Outdoor Industry Association and Best Companies Group, the list of winners appears online.
Living Balanced, Outside and Inside of the Office
“Our core values are baked into who we are as a company, and living balanced is one of them,” says Founder & CEO of EverCheck Brian Solano. A former pro rock-climbing photographer, Solano founded the Florida-based software company as a way to help the healthcare industry simplify the impact of regulation. With 20 US-based team members, EverCheck focuses on its employees’ well-being both inside and outside of the office as a way to promote workplace engagement.
At work, employees are encouraged to partake in the organic produce and super juices the company provides every week and to use one of the EverCheck beach cruisers for a quick ride to the local coffee shop or market. And because of EverCheck’s environmentally conscious practices, employees are never exposed to harsh cleaning agents or pesticides in the office. In fact, “thinking green” is encouraged in all facets of the business for EverCheck and its employees.
Outside of the office, EverCheck allows both flex and remote work, a generous paid family leave plan, and monthly fitness allowances. With offices based in Jacksonville Beach, Florida and Boulder, Colorado, EverCheck employees are never far from great surf or rock climbing.
“There’s a clear connection between the health and wellness of our team and employee engagement. The happier and healthier you are, the more opportunity you have to truly connect with your work and your teammates,” says EverCheck Director of Client Services, Angie Gil.
OUTSIDE Philosophy and Methodology
“This year’s list of Best Places to Work highlights employers who go above and beyond for their staff,” said OUTSIDE Online Editor Scott Rosenfield. “Included are organizations that emphasize a healthy work life balance and promote, encourage, and reward employees to live active and healthier lives.”
To create the best places to work 2016 list, OUTSIDE started by comparing employers to five core categories reflecting the magazine’s values and focus: Adventure/Travel, Wellness, Culture, Gear, and Media. OUTSIDE then conducted a rigorous vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies.
Powered by employee workplace reviews and taking into account factors like corporate culture, job satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement, the Best Places to Work list represents only the top companies that are not only empowering but also encouraging their employees to live better, healthier and more active lives.
Companies from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the Outside’s Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
