W&A Cares About Employee Well-being

 

W&A strives to create a sense of teamwork and a workplace environment in which employees can thrive professionally, feel supported personally, and be encouraged to pursue their passions.

 

HERE’S HOW WE SHOW IT!

Wellness Program

Wellness encompasses more than just a person’s physical health. A person’s wellness can be impacted by a variety of factors, from lack of sleep to feelings of stress and being overwhelmed to not having time for family and friends or for activities that are personally fulfilling. W&A is in the process of developing a comprehensive wellness program that will encourage healthy habits and create a culture of care at our workplaces. Areas to be addressed are: Nutrition, Physical Activity & Fitness, Prevention & Screening, and Healthy Life Balance.

W&A currently offers health and dental insurance, flex time, paid holidays and time-off, a maternity policy, funeral leave policy, daily office quiet time, and a smoke-free environment.

Financial Incentives

At W&A we want our employees to feel valued, and, of course, we hope that everything we do— from the smallest interaction to annual evaluations, reinforces that core principle. But, we also recognize that financial incentives are important to demonstrating our appreciation.

W&A currently offers new hire incentives, longevity rewards, a flexible benefit program, flexible spending accounts, and a bonus pool for associates.

Team Building

All work and no play make Jack and Jill very dull! At W&A we recognize that simply working in the same space does not, by itself, ensure a sense of teamwork and productive collaborations. So, we’ve created the PEP (Phenomenal Event Planning) Squad, a group of employees empowered to plan regular events and outings that allow us to get to know each other better so that our co-workers become a work family.

In addition to the Pep Squad events (such as the annual kayak outing and Escape the Space challenge, regular attendance at local Trivia Nights, special occasions like the super-fun visit to Medieval Times, etc.), W&A has regular paid lunch-n-learns, offers an on-boarding and mentoring program, W&A Community BBQ, and group volunteer projects.

Extra Special People

Professional and Personal Growth

W&A prides itself on the credentials and accomplishments of its employees and is committed to supporting their continued professional growth and encouraging their personal passions. In addition to dedicating company resources to our communities, we also encourage employees to get involved by paying for up to 16 hours annually spent on THEIR charity of choice. See Our Employee Spotlight Features.

In addition, W&A offers paid continuing education, professional licensure reimbursement, a networking lunch program, and an annual appraisal process whereby employees are asked to assess the company and its culture as well as rate their job satisfaction and performance.

Professional Growth

Financial Security

At W&A we ask a lot of our employees, and we want to ensure that the time they spend with us is part of a lifetime of creating long-term financial security for themselves and their families.

W&A provides long-term disability insurance, life insurance, retirement fund matching, and a rainy day fund for employee/family emergencies.
