We are pleased to announce that Web Benefits Design has been named a Top Workplace 2020 by the Orlando Sentinel.
This list of Central Florida’s top employers is based solely upon employee feedback gathered through a third party-survey, administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.
Earning this award in a year like 2020 is especially rewarding, as WBD, like many companies, has had to reconfigure the way we work and collaborate due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Throughout the current health crisis, we have put the safety and wellbeing of our employees first, by transitioning all employees to work-from-home status, and providing all employees with new laptops and equipment to support this change. To further assist with the challenge of outfitting home offices, a $500 reimbursement fund was set aside for each employee, allowing them to purchase office accessories such as comfortable chairs and work desks.
Employee appreciation and motivation has also been a number one priority. While we understand our employees might miss our fun office events — we love our ice cream socials, company picnics, celebration breakfasts and dress-up days — we’ve found new ways to boost employee morale and keep the team feeling our company spirit even while we’re all working from home.
This year we’ve sent a number of thank-you gifts to our team members for all of their hard work, including desk kits with handy office supplies, anti-stress kits with fun accessories like stress balls and coloring mouse pads, company swag such as mugs and face masks, and even Halloween baskets filled with candy and treats.
Of course, WBD’s core employee benefits are a key component of what makes us one of Central Florida’s best places to work. With benefits packages including competitive salaries, career development, tuition assistance, EAP, 401K, employer-paid life, excellent insurance plans, and more, WBD’s company culture is built upon creating a place where employees want to work, and are rewarded for a job well done, every day.
For our employees, WBD’s honor as a Top Workplace 2020 comes as no surprise. CEO and President of Web Benefits Design, Bethany Schenk, says: “For five years, our employees have voiced their opinions and have agreed that Web Benefits Design should have the honor of being recognized as a top place to work in Central Florida.”
“This year has been filled with changes beyond what we could have ever imagined. I am proud and honored to work alongside the best employees. Our employees are resilient, bright and talented. They continued to shine and never missed a beat while we transitioned from working in the office to working at home – all while caring for their families and our clients with excellence in a time of uncertainty. They are truly what makes Web Benefits Design a great place to work!”
With 100 employees in the Central Florida region, WBD is proud to be a major contributor to the professional community. For more information on careers with Web Benefits Design, please click here.
