Invest in employees’ health: We partner with our health center for our Healthy Workers Program. We have a lot of employees who aren’t full time so they don’t have health benefits. We work with the health center to provide some health services for these employees. We give the health center some money out of our budget to take care of these employees so they can also get discounted prescriptions, etc. We also host health clinics a couple of times a year. If we don’t have healthy employees, we can’t do our jobs.
