PARIC was Announced as a Top Work Place for 2016

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch announced PARIC as a Top Workplace for 2016 (Midsize business). This award is determined by employee surveys.

While PARIC offers a full suite of traditional benefits, we are also proud to offer our employees unique benefits as well. Adoption benefits, emergency air evacuation service for remote projects, and a “Road Warrior Stipend” to support our employees who travel out of town on a regular basis. Road Warrior Stipend: For those employees who are traveling three or more days per week we offer a financial stipend to help offset costs associated with not being at home. Spending quality time with family rather than maintaining household tasks assists with achieving and maintaining work/life balance.

We make employee wellness a top priority, providing a variety of programs which invites all employees to participate these include; walking challenges, bringing yoga to the office, the MS150, the Color Run, treadmill workstations, fruit that is available every day, and an office therapy dog that comes in to improve morale. We don’t want to focus on just the physical aspect of wellness, but also focus on wellness programs that connect the mind, body, and spirit. Each month we focus on a specific challenge, such as eating meals at a table, walking a certain number of steps, and giving sincere compliments. Wellness blocks are given to those who finish a challenge each month, and every quarter there is a wellness drawing to receive prizes like a Trader Joe's gift card, a Smoothie King gift card, a fitness jacket, and a water bottle which reminds the user to drink more water.

We believe it is extremely important to maintain a work/life balance, because of this, employees receive over three weeks Paid Time Off in their first year. Comprehensive Wellness Screening: We offer this benefit not only to employees but spouses as well. This process has been able to detect three serious cardiac conditions, prostate issues and diabetes. Individuals were provided with medical and nutritional counseling services to assist with achieving and maintaining wellness.
