Sensiba Claims Distinguished Honor for the Fifth Year in a Row
Sensiba LLP, a leading Northern California-based accounting and business consulting firm, has been named for the fifth year in a row as one of Silicon Valley Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times’ 2015 Healthiest Employers in the Bay Area, the only regional CPA firm in the Bay Area to receive this accolade.
The Silicon Valley Business Journal and San Francisco Business Times selected the 2015 Healthiest Employers in the Bay Area winners based on criteria including fitness activities offered within the firm, wellness programs, employee coaching, firm-wide encouragement of fitness activities during the workday, reimbursement programs for fitness/wellness activities, firm-wide team sports, fitness incentive programs, and availability of ergonomic furniture/equipment.
“Sensiba’s core values are grounded in providing a balanced and healthy lifestyle for our employees,” said John Sensiba, Managing Partner of Sensiba. “We are proud that our firm’s commitment to that focus is being recognized again.”
“A successful wellness program benefits businesses in many ways,” says Sholly Nicholson, Manager of Human Resources at Sensiba. “It can reduce costs to the employer and improve employee health and morale. Research shows that employees are more likely to come to work and perform well when they are healthy. Employees are also more likely to be attracted to, remain with, and value a firm that cares about them.”
The firm has built a comprehensive wellness program that includes offering employees fitness programs and benefits focused on supporting healthy choices both at work and outside of the office. Benefits offered include providing healthy snacks in each of the company’s five offices, educational classes on healthy life choices and flexible work arrangements to ensure employees have time to commit to their health and fitness goals. The firm also provides employees with discounted fitness classes, gym memberships or the option to go to one of their on-site gyms. The firm brings in outside training resources on a regular basis for stress management, nutrition seminars, and offers chair massages and fruit smoothies during the busy tax season. Also, the firm participates in softball tournaments, group bocce ball, bowling, golfing events and group walkathon fundraisers.
