Squire Wins Two Utah Worksite Wellness Council Awards
Squire recently received two awards from the Utah Worksite Wellness Council (UWWC) in recognition of our efforts to prioritize mental health and the overall well-being of our employees amidst a tumultuous year of change. The firm was exclusively awarded the Emotional Innovation Award and took home the Silver Healthy Worksite Award at UWWC’s Innovate to Elevate Annual Conference, earlier this week.
These awards were given based on our new programs and reinforced processes to help support employees’ mental health. As day-to-day operations shifted to a remote landscape, we began hosting water cooler meetings, with a multitude of activities to alleviate stress and enhance personal connection. We also promoted wellness by holding several activities such as virtual yoga, a virtual retreat, and a bingo challenge that encouraged employees to complete challenges relating to health to be entered in a drawing to win gift cards to local establishments.
“We are overjoyed to have won these awards, as they validate the efforts that we have made to uplift morale, enhance connection, and prioritize our employees’ needs over the past year,” said Jonyce Bullock, CEO of Squire. “Our firm truly values personal connection, and we will continue to find innovative ways to stay connected and enhance employee satisfaction for years to come.”
To showcase Squire’s appreciation for our employees in 2020, we initiated a new care package effort that has been distributed to associates several times throughout the past year and has included items such as a COVID-19 survival pack, Bluetooth headphones, head-scratchers, and more. To coincide with these more lighthearted programs, the firm continued to promote our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that provided training on how to recognize concerns of added stress and help others, amongst other topics.
Squire recently received additional recognition for our efforts to enhance employee satisfaction and well-being. In December 2020, Squire was named one of Utah Business’s “Best Companies to Work for” for the third year in a row. This recognition is determined by a rigorous vetting process using Qualtrics survey technology that surveys employees on their satisfaction in many areas.
