PLEASANTON, CA, September 17, 2018 — Sensiba, a leading Northern California-based accounting and business consulting firm, has been named one of the Greater Bay Area’s Healthiest Employers by Healthiest Employers.com for the eighth year in a row.
The 2018 Healthiest Employer winners were selected based on factors contributing to the health of its employees. Sensiba was one out of twenty-six medium size firms to receive the award this year. Considerations included: fitness activities offered within the firm, wellness programs, employee coaching, firm-wide encouragement of fitness activities during the workday, reimbursement programs for fitness and wellness activities, firm-wide team sports, fitness incentive programs, and availability of ergonomic furniture and equipment in the office.
“We are honored to have received this award for the eighth year in a row” said John Sensiba, Managing Partner of Sensiba. “As employers, we understand the importance of wellness education and programs. Good health is a critical part of a happy life and the happiness of our colleagues is a top priority.”
“Sensiba’s strong commitment to wellness is ingrained in our culture and is a tone that is set from the top,” said Sholly Nicholson, Director of Human Resources at Sensiba. “The success of our health and wellness program is because our employees have buy-in and see tangible benefits from participation.”
The Firm has built a comprehensive wellness program that includes offering employees education and benefits focused on supporting healthy living both at work and outside of the office. Benefits include: healthy snacks in each of the company’s six offices, ergonomic assessments and furniture, educational classes on healthy choices, as well as flexible work arrangements to ensure employees have time to commit to their health and fitness goals. 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.
