At BlackBerry, we have long taken pride in taking care of our employees – after all, it takes the best and brightest minds to secure the Enterprise of Things – and we take seriously our commitment to protect them and their health. This is why we are so proud to be named a winner of the 2016 National Best and Brightest In Wellness Award by the National Association of Business Resources through its Best and Brightest in business program.
The Best and Brightest in Wellness competition honors “organizations that promote a culture of wellness; and those that plan, implement, and evaluate efforts in employee wellness to make their business and the community a healthier place to live and work.” BlackBerry won this award because of its competitive medical, dental, vision, employee-assistance program, and other employee wellness benefits, including a fitness center subsidy, on-site health services, and more for all full-time employees.
BlackBerry’s decision to offer such a comprehensive employee wellness package is not merely a way to attract top tech talent in a competitive hiring market. Rather, it’s a sign of our commitment to our employees over the long run, one of many ways we give back to them for sharing their talents with us.
