More and more workers are now seeking employers who understand that an individual’s personal and professional life cannot always be distinctly compartmentalized. Standard benefits such as insurance and retirement plans are important to candidates, but they desire more. They desire a work environment and culture that is focused on their well-being in the workplace, as well as in their personal lives.
At INTUITIVE, we believe in the total well-being of our employees, which is why we put emphasis on bringing our employees and their families together. Employees are increasingly blurring the lines between work and personal life because they want more than a cluster of co-workers…they want a workplace family!
The employees we choose are going to be useful in ways we haven’t even imagined yet—far beyond any one contract—so we need to keep them here. Our Human Resources staff works to develop and convey our family culture for prospective hires. Our employees enjoy a unique sense of belonging and security because we keep recruiting you and your loved ones after you’re hired.
We connect our employee families with a calendar of yearly events and community activities.
INTUITIVE’s Day at the Garden
INTUITIVE is a proud Corporate Sponsor of the Huntsville Botanical Garden. In September, our employees and their families are invited to explore the gardens and its other attractions for a full day. Entry is free compliments of INTUITIVE. Employees also receive discounted garden memberships.
Galaxy of Lights Night
The holidays can be lonely, especially in a new city. Galaxy of Lights is a holiday light extravaganza at the Huntsville Botanical Garden that can either be walked or driven through. Our employees and their families meet in the Grand Hall facility for hot chocolate, cider, and Christmas cookies. We encourage everyone to wear their tacky Christmas sweaters. Best of all, we have Santa Claus there for the children. The kids line up to make their holiday wishes and pose for a quick photo.
Saturday at the Movies
Every summer, we rent an entire theater on a Saturday. Our Human Resources department selects 3 or 4 movies to screen so that everyone has a choice. Everyone enjoys a drink and popcorn.
Family Farm Day
There’s nothing that gets you out of summer and into fall like a trip to a hay-strewn pumpkin patch. INTUITIVE purchases free entry to a pumpkin patch for all employees and family members to enjoy hayrides, corn pits, and petting zoos. Every child gets to pick his/her own pumpkin. This is always a fun event. It’s a great way to kick off the fall season.
These activities outside of work give us a chance to see each other as multi-faceted, and they help families to bond over time. We’ve had co-workers in each other’s weddings and we celebrate births together. Likewise, if employees have a sickness or death in the family, we come together for them. When prospective employees ask about work-life balance and community, we have these answers and more.
