Program Honors Companies that Promote Employee Well-Being, Worksite Health and Wellness
Brea, CA (Aug. 23, 2021) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, was one of the recipients of the 2021 Best and Brightest in Wellness winners by the National Association for Business Resources [NABR]. This program by NABR honors companies that promote employee well-being, worksite health and wellness. The companies were evaluated by an assessment created and administered by SynBella, the nation’s leading wellness systems firm.
ViewSonic encourages employee health and fitness with multiple initiatives. The company offers a robust health, dental and vision plan that includes additional services such as mental health, chiropractic care and acupuncture. ViewSonic also provides flexible schedules that allow employees to work out before, after or during the day. All employees have been provided Fitbits and access to the wellness platform/app SonicBoom. ViewSonic uses the app to communicate wellness tips, daily challenges, and host competitions.
"We’re pleased to have been recognized for our health and wellness program, and even with the current work-from-home and hybrid office environment, we continue to encourage our teams to keep up with their self-care," said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic. "We’ve hosted lunch-and-learns with health providers, provided Fitbits and wellness apps to all employees to encourage a healthy lifestyle. The company provides and continues to host yoga classes, Zumba, and sculpting via Zoom. We will be maintaining our on-site gym with health guidelines in place, as we move forward. ViewSonic employees are very proactive and competitive. They have organized weekend walks, hikes, or bike rides where all are welcome to join. It’s great to see that the company’s programs, as well as encouragement to health and fitness is acknowledged."
"The Best and Brightest is a powerful community of elite leaders who share ideas and practices and have proven they are employers of choice. Best and Brightest winning companies have also been a voice for important action in creating a sustainable culture that works and ensuring the well-being of their employees come first," said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO, Best and Brightest Programs.
ViewSonic has built a culture of innovation and solution-oriented products, which, in turn is reflected on the outlook and mindset of the employees. The employees have developed an environment for friendly competition, and fitness is no exception. A fitness team regularly hosts competitions with prizes for top winners. Participation averages about 60–70 percent of employees. The teams use the SonicBoom app to develop, communicate and track contests. Employees log in to see not only their progress but the leaderboard of other challengers and their ranking. The fitness team also communicates challenges via email, workplace chat and during town hall and manager meetings.
