RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Hill, Chesson & Woody (HCW) , a health and welfare benefits brokerage and consulting firm that designs, manages and implements employee benefit programs, has announced that the firm has been named one of the 2013 Best Employers in North Carolina by Business North Carolina, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – N.C. State Council and Best Companies Group.
The annual award, based on a two-part assessment of applicant organizations and their employees, recognizes North Carolina companies that provide the most outstanding benefits and exhibit the highest employee satisfaction rate. HCW received the award in the small- to medium-sized business category, which rates companies with fewer than 250 employees. The firm stood out among entrants for its dedication to improving employees’ quality of life through various programs and benefits including flexible work schedules, chair massages, gym reimbursements, monthly fruit and salad bars provided by the firm’s wellness committee and sneaker days (where employees are allowed to wear tennis shoes to work). HCW has a team of employee-led groups that focus on culture, wellness and innovation within the firm.
Companies from across the state entered the survey process designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in North Carolina, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses. Winners were selected after careful evaluation of each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics and employee experience.
