At JK we’re very proud to offer our employees a profit sharing plan, paid vacation, comprehensive healthcare coverage, and a bevy of other, major benefits. Today, we would like to take a moment to discuss the less expected, ancillary benefits that we offer our employees to make their lives a little easier.
JK has partnered with PNC Bank through their WorkPlace Banking program to offer free checks and enhanced online banking. JK has even installed a PNC ATM in the building. Additionally, representatives visit quarterly to explain the program and answer questions and concerns. PNC representatives have also presented seminars on money saving techniques and planning a personal budget.
Every quarter the financial advisor for our 401(k) plan is available onsite to meet all employees. He will review an employee’s plan, explain how the funds are being invested, and make suggestions tailored to the employee. The financial advisor offers big picture financial planning for employees and his services are free.
At JK, we want our employees to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. Through our partnership with LA Fitness employees can receive reduced membership rates. In addition to LA Fitness, we are welcoming trainers from Athlete’s Addiction for a four week “Boot Camp,” where employees can learn simple but effective exercises they can do at home.
Not only is JK encouraging an active lifestyle, but a healthy one. We’re providing flu shots for all employees throughout October through Safeway Pharmacies. In November, we will be hosting a Wellness Fair, where employees can have their blood pressure, cholesterol, and Body Mass Index measured.
On the third Thursday of the month throughout the summer, JK invited representative from Anthem® EAP to present one-hour seminars for employees. Topics included, “Eating Healthy,” “Getting Organized,” and “Stress Management.” And if employees were unavailable to attend, all the presentations are available online.
Good Old Fashioned Fun
We like to reward our team in small ways for a job well done, like the commercial sales team hosting a barbeque for the commercial crews. Or an ice cream truck or food truck. Sometimes, it’s a picnic or a Thanksgiving potluck. It can be a Halloween contest and party or wear-your-favorite-football-team-jersey day.
We love giving back to our employees, because without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. Visit our Facebook page to learn more about the culture and benefits of working for JK!
