5 Companies with Wellness Initiatives that Simone Biles Would Approve Of

With the Olympics in full swing, it’s hard to watch Simone Biles do a double back layout and not be motivated to get to the gym, or eat healthier. But chances are you’ve got a full-time job and a host of other responsibilities. So why not find a company that lets you take care of getting healthy at work?

At InHerSight.com women rate the female-friendliness of their employers on fourteen different factors and get matched to companies that meet their needs. We looked through our database of tens of thousands of rated companies and found a handful of employers that women have given high marks for their healthy offerings including things like on-site gyms, gym discounts, walking desks, healthy food options, and more.

So whether you’re training to be the next olympic gymnast, a crossfit junkie looking to get your classes reimbursed, or you just want an afternoon massage every once in awhile, check out these five companies that are investing in employee wellness and see if you can find one that’s right for you.

MINDBODY

5.0 in Wellness Initiatives | More ratings

MINDBODY Facebook

As the leading online marketplace for wellness services, it makes sense that MINDBODY would score high in this area. True to their mission “to improve the wellness of the world,” the company literally walks the talk, offering its employees 15+ onsite wellness classes every week, 3 onsite massage therapists, $65 in monthly wellness vouchers, and a monthly outdoor activity (think: dodgeball or outdoor yoga). With so many opportunities to stay healthy and active, it’s no wonder employees have rated MINDBODY 5.0 in both Wellness Initiatives and Social Activities & Environment.

lululemon athletica

4.8 in Wellness Initiatives | More ratings

No surprise here. Lululemon is known for the active lifestyle they promote (and for their reusable shopping bags, let’s be honest). Employees not only enjoy discounts on the company’s activewear, but they also receive “a weekly stipend to spend on athletic ventures, such as yoga [or] crossfit”. And, by the way, if you’ve ever read the outside of a lululemon bag, you probably felt inspired to run a 5K, have a spontaneous dance party, or maybe to spend more time with your friends. Lululemon promotes inner wellness just as much as physical activity, if not more.

Google

Google Careers

Well known for company benefits and perks, Google has a reputation for taking care of its employees. In fact, the Internet company’s highest rated category on InHerSight is Wellness Initiatives, outscoring other big names in the industry, including Microsoft and Amazon. A former intern at Google says, “There were many classes open to interns and full-timers for learning courses, and they were open to staff too (like yoga instructors or masseuses - which they had all over campus).”

Nike

4.5 in Wellness Initiatives | More ratings

You can’t say Nike without thinking about an active and healthy lifestyle. Wellness goes hand in hand with Nike’s mission to serve and inspire athletes, and the company internalizes these values. Employees can enjoy benefits like onsite fitness centers as well as a variety of fitness discounts. As one InHerSight reviewer stated, “it is wonderful to be a part of a company that promotes this kind of well being for all.”

PayPal

4.3 in Wellness Initiatives | More ratings

PayPal Jobs

This one may come as a surprise, but PayPal is another Internet company on the forefront of promoting employee health and wellness. Similar to Google, Wellness Initiatives is PayPal’s highest rated metric. According to the company’s benefits page , they offer unique wellness initiatives, including “a Stanford Navigator [who] helps employees research providers and health conditions, and make informed decisions about health care.”
