TouchSuite, one of America’s leading and fastest-growing technology companies, has been recognized as one of South Florida’s healthiest employers of 2014, by the region’s top business publication, South Florida Business Journal. The company was honored at a dedicated luncheon in Fort Lauderdale on June 5, where they were announced as one of the top five finalists in the Small Companies category.
“As an employer, it is critical to understand that the health and happiness of your employees directly impacts the success and profitability of your company,” said TouchSuite CEO Sam Zietz. “Your employees are not just human resources- they are people that need to be mentally and physically healthy, supported and inspired to function at their highest potential. It means a great deal to us to be recognized for our advances in this area, as it is just as important to us as is our accomplishments in the marketplace.”
The Boca Raton-based company was awarded as finalists based on a survey conducted by Healthiest Employers, LLC who compared and rated the nominated wellness programs and tabulated results in order to establish which employers were most worthy of the recognition. Several aspects of TouchSuite’s unique health and wellness program supported their ability to receive the recognition.
In 2013, Zietz devised a plan that brought a new fitness facility into TouchSuite’s headquarters and provided his entire staff with complimentary memberships. TouchSuite employees can now work out before or after work, or during their lunch break, which helps to foster teamwork, support and encouragement. The facility is operated by Imperial Martial Arts and Fitness Center and features a fully equipped weight room, boxing ring, top-of-the-line equipment and a full coaching and training staff.
In addition to exceptional and affordable healthcare benefits that include preventative care options, TouchSuite regularly organizes unique opportunities for its team to participate in athletic events and receive wellness treatments. The company hosts an annual flag football game that is always well attended, and have coordinated several impromptu visits from mobile massage therapists to their offices, offering up massages to anyone interested.
