We are proud to announce that we have been recognized by The Great Place to Work® Institute on the list of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness for the second time! This award underscores our people first culture and our steadfast commitment to provide a mentally and emotionally healthy workplace. Our dedicated Mental Wellness Committee leads initiatives to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and to foster mental wellness in the workplace. We’ve made it a priority for all employees to receive training on recognizing and providing appropriate support to individuals in need of mental health assistance.

One of our most successful programs under the mental wellness umbrella has been “Optimus Days”.  All employees are granted one pre-scheduled company-wide day off per month, over and above regular vacation, giving them additional time to schedule personal matters, rest, recharge, and unplug. Other Mental Health supports include a newly established microsite for our Mental Illness & Wellness program, Health Benefits with a Health Spending Account, an Employee Health and Assistance Plan, Lumino (online health network and resources), Mental Wellness Moments, Optimus Chats 1:1, Culture Events & Physical Activities, a guide to Leading Through Crisis, Learning Paths, and a Check-In Model.

Our focus on employee wellness is one of the key qualities that makes Optimus SBR a great place to work.

The Great Place to Work® Institute compiles the Best Workplace lists by gaining direct feedback from employees from the hundreds of organizations that are surveyed.

To be eligible for the 2022 list of Best Workplaces for Mental Wellness, organizations must be Great Place to Work – Certified in the past year and at least 75% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy. The BEST workplace was determined by the overall Mental Wellness Index score based on survey results from hundreds of employees and the complexity of the organization.
