We’re proud to announce we have been recognized as a top three finalist in the 2019 Healthiest Employers of New York City awards program, hosted by Sequoia Consulting Group and powered by Springbuk. Select employers from the New York City area were named top three in their category at the awards program, held on April 3rd, 2019. These organizations were honored for their commitment to employee health, with exceptional corporate wellness programming.

We were evaluated across six key categories: Culture and Leadership, Foundational Components, Strategic Planning, Communication and Marketing, Programming and Interventions, and Reporting and Analytics. Completed assessments were ranked with the proprietary Healthiest Employers Index, a 1-100 rubric for wellness programming.

Direct Agents has promoted wellness in the workplace since its beginnings in 2003 which has helped to develop a culture of excellence. With leadership’s support, the program has evolved over the years, and the benefits currently include resources to support healthy choices such as:

  • Flexible Hours
    We understand life gets busy, so we offer flexible hours and work-from-home days.
  • Healthy Snacks
    Health-conscious snacks like fresh fruits and vegetables are available daily in our kitchen.
  • Wellness
    We offer gym and class pass reimbursement programs, as well as, fitness and wellness classes.
  • Benefits Coverage
    Our employees have the option to enroll in health, dental and vision plans, including FSA and life insurance benefits.
  • Team Bonding
    We make time for work and play. Programs like Wine Down Thursdays, Field Day, and team outings provide a multitude of opportunities for bonding!
  • DA Unplugged
    We want our employees to “unplug from their desks” so we offer lounge-like work areas both in our NYC and LA offices.

“It’s inspiring to see the commitment and results New York City employers are producing in the health of their population,” said Greg Golub, Founder, and CEO of Sequoia Consulting Group. We congratulate Direct Agents and all of the award participants on being leaders in workplace health and prioritizing the wellbeing of their team members.”
