Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
Edifecs, Inc., a global health information technology solutions company, announced today it was named a silver winner of the Best Places to Work category: Best in Biz Awards 2014, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
The company was recognized as a Best Place to Work for offering employees premier benefits packages including onsite wellness fairs and free biometric testing, smoking cessation programs and Health Savings Plans with generous employer contributions.
Additionally, Edifecs' new company headquarters offers many world-class amenities, including:
•Free onsite fitness trainer offering more than 30 hours per week of classes, along with one-on-one training sessions and nutritional counseling.
•Herman Miller desks that can be electronically raised to standing position.
•Free selection of healthy-only food and beverages, including a freshly squeezed orange juice machine.
•The largest living wall in Puget Sound with over 500 plants. The office has an additional 500 plants in offices and common areas to increase oxygen levels and bring nature into the building.
•Kayaks and electric bikes for associates to use to run local errands or explore the office-adjacent nature preserve.
•A robust sustainability program empowering associates to contribute the wellness of our planet. Edifecs has increased employee headcount by 10 percent while reducing its landfill waste by more than 75 percent per year—from 104 cubic yards to less than 25 cubic yards. Edifecs also established a successful composting program, which created 154 cubic yards of compost in its first year.
The Best in Biz Awards’ fourth annual North American program was its most competitive yet. As in previous years, the annual program featured a large and distinguished judging panel comprised of members of the media who reviewed and scored the more than 550 award nominations received this year. Nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada.
“We are honored to receive the silver Best in Biz Award for Best Place to Work,” said Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs. “We designed our new office space to be more than just an office building. It is a destination that associates are excited to come to and enjoy, and be at their productive best. We have some of the best talent in the healthcare industry and we empower them with one of the most ergonomic and eco-friendly offices in existence. It is a tremendous affirmation to receive the Best in Biz Award.”
Best in Biz Awards 2014 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year and Best Place to Work.
