We know we’re a pretty healthy company, and San Diego Business Journal thinks so, too! We can now add another win to our column … Healthiest Company. There were so many factors that went into being named one of San Diego’s Healthiest Companies. We could go on at great length, but here’s just a snippet.
The Control Group sponsors everything from fun runs, to company sports teams, to health challenges. We annually participate in various 5Ks, including the Del Mar ROC Race, Del Mar Mud Run, and Helen Woodward Puppy Love 5K. TCG also sponsors various company sports teams: basketball, soccer, bowling, and beach volleyball. Some of the employees play lunchtime basketball on the company’s outdoor basketball court, or they surf and paddleboard steps from the office.
Last year, The Active Group (a play on our company’s name) was created as TCG’s formal wellness initiative. The program kicked off with our first annual company health fair. TCG invited multiple health-related vendors to the office for the employees to gather tons of information. Mini-massages, a healthy lunch, and health screenings were available to all.
Monthly wellness activities and challenges are now incorporated at TCG throughout the year, such as a bike to work, a walking step challenge, an onsite flu shot clinic, and a healthy cooking demo. These challenges also come with some nice rewards, such as gift cards, trophies, PTO, and company outings.
TCG doesn’t skimp on health when it comes to food and drinks. Cold-pressed organic juices are delivered to the offices weekly, and employees have access to fully stocked kitchens with plenty of healthy options. We enjoy discounted gym membership rates, onsite massages, yoga sessions at work, personal training sessions, an onsite gym, an outdoor basketball court, standing desks upon request, skateboards, surfboards, and all kinds of sporting equipment.
With such an emphasis on health, it’s easy to see why TCG is now one of San Diego’s Healthiest Companies!
