At Advance Financial, we believe in good health. One of the focal points of our charitable giving is health and wellness. But we also believe in promoting the good health of our employees. Being healthy can be a lot of work, that’s why we want to help in any way we can with the process. Here are a few of the benefits we offer:
- Company paid health insurance
- CIGNA support 24 hours through the nurse line and website
- Discounted YMCA membership
- Track and Field team that runs a 5k every month
- Company sponsored basketball team
- Volunteer opportunities that involve physical activity
Also, on Sunday, May 4, 2014, we had our 2nd Annual Health Fair for our employees and their families at our corporate office. There were approximately 150 people in attendance. About 25 vendors attended and handed out information and gave demonstrations on everything from exercise to food nutrition and everything in between.
Cigna conducted biometric screenings and approximately 64 employees participated in this. This provided important information such as blood pressure, body mass index, glucose levels and cholesterol. Awareness is the first step toward change and this provided employees some good information.
Another facet of good health is financial health. One of the things Advance Financial offers is a 401k savings plan. This allows employees to contribute a percentage of their earnings, through payroll deduction, into a long-term savings plan. The employee contribution is a pre-tax deduction.
The first 3% of the money you save is matched by the company at 100%. Because Advance Financial believes in good financial health, employees are automatically enrolled into the 401k plan at a 1% savings level when they are eligible after 6 months of employment. Our 401k savings plan representative had a table at the health fair and offered employees more information about the plan.
At Advance Financial we strive to offer our employees every opportunity to be better in all areas of life. We know that happy and healthy employees are good employees. If you’re interested in becoming part of the Advance Financial family, go to our Job Center.
