The Psychologically Healthy Workplace 

Communications Pacific
2008 Award Winner: Small Business Category

Communications Pacific, with its 55 employees, offers an integrated program of advertising, community building, marketing, public relations, and web services to its clients. Their keys to their success are taking employee involvement very seriously and  creating a feeling of family among all the employees.

For example, one employee suggested establishing flu stations, where individuals are given information about flu shots and are given immunity-building aids, such as zinc tablets and vitamin C. When complaints arose regarding the coffee available in the lounge, the company organized a coffee tasting to come up with a better brew.

Communications Pacific uses an ergonomics consultant to evaluate the work place and provide flexible and remote worksite arrangements.

There is a formal wellness program, in which almost half of the employees participate. Personal trainers are brought in twice a week, and Sports Authority gift cards are given for regular attendance. A workout station is provided on the roof terrace.

As a formal index of their success in this area is the fact that while the turn-over rate in similar  companies nationally runs about 35%, the turn-over rate at Communications Pacific is only 14%.
