For the second year running, EverCheck has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work. Up 63 spots from its 2016’s ranking, EverCheck has proven that not only it is a great workplace for its staff, but that it respects the environment and encourages a balance between work and enjoying life in the great outdoors.
“We’re ecstatic to be a part of an elite group of companies recognized for creating work environments that encourage staff to be the best versions of themselves,” says Brian Solano, EverCheck Founder & CEO.
Companies from across the country participated in a two-part survey process where workplace policies, philosophies, practices, and the like were evaluated. Employees also took part in a survey to measure personal experience.
The winning companies are those that value productivity in combination with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle for a fulfilling experience inside and outside the office. This is OUTSIDE’s tenth year providing the Best Places to Work.
For a small company, EverCheck has been known to provide benefits on par with some of the largest and most progressive companies in the US. For one, new moms and dads receive 12 weeks of fully paid parental leave, including adoptions. A recent survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management and the Families and Work Institute found that only 6% of employers with 50 or more employees offer fully-paid parental leave.
And that’s just one aspect of EverCheck’s robust wellness policy. Other benefits include organic produce subsidies, monthly fitness allowances, superfood juices delivered weekly, and communal bikes to get around during office hours. “These types of benefits send the message: we genuinely care about your health and well-being,” says Solano.
EverCheck is one of two Florida companies who made the list and the only Jacksonville-based company.
