Keeping it lively is also the name of the game for many.
“We like to have fun and have a casual office environment,”
Tomlinson says. “We have a game room with a foosball table and
video game machines and there’s always something going on. We try
to have a Happy Hour in the office a couple times a month and bring
in lunch a few times a month.”
Emarsys also allows employees to turn in gym membership
receipts for reimbursement and employees have access to Market
Tower’s workout facilities. A little indulging is also encouraged as the
company periodically hosts an ice cream truck for its staff.
A common theme permeating top workplaces is that a cohesive
internal community is bolstered by dedication to the community as a
whole. That’s why giving back is imperative.
“It’s one thing to be in a community, but it’s another to be a part
of it,” Brady surmises. “So we have a committee here that’s focused on
what our charity giving looks like each year. Last year, we supported
Nextech because we want to help younger folks get into technology.
“This year, the team came to me and said they want to focus on
pets and the environment, and we want to support some families
through the holidays,” he adds. “You want to have meaning in what
you do every day and with the people you work with.”
Enhancing education is a point of passion at PAN. Employees with
strong feelings about particular charities are encouraged to make suggestions.
“We’ve adopted an elementary school (Greenbriar Elementary in
Indianapolis) and provide them with coats and snack packs for the kids,”
Holm relays. “Three or four times a year, the staff puts in considerable
effort to help that school out.”
CleanSlate chooses three organizations to support each year,
