Pelican adds vaccination benefit to wellness program
Wire Experts Group, the parent company of Pelican Wire in Florida and Rubadue Wire in Colorado, is adding an additional benefit to its corporate wellness program to address COVID vaccinations. Beginning in March, the HR departments at both locations began distributing $150 gift cards to each employee-owner who completed the COVID vaccination process.
Pelican Wire human resources officer Amy Foster said,
Through partnerships with organizations such as Florida Blue and Case Benefits, we provide not only all-inclusive insurance benefits and family leave, but also a myriad of wellness programs to our employee-owners. These include paid gym memberships, managed weight loss systems, smoking cessation programs, nutritional partnerships and easy access to various medical and emergency resources for immediate support. Updating our program offerings to include COVID vaccinations during this critical time was the next logical step in protecting our employee-owners and their families, who are truly the heartbeat of our organization.
Ted Bill, Wire Experts CEO, commented,
I am very optimistic the USA is on the right track with COVID-19 vaccinations. From the outset of this pandemic, we have proactively worked to do everything possible to protect our employee-owners and their families. So naturally, we are strongly encouraging every member of our team to get vaccinated. Our leaders are showing the way by being the first to be vaccinated and weve created the program to simply express that encouragement in a meaningful way. Im sure I speak for most of us when I say I am looking forward to the day masks are no longer needed and we can get back to more in-person meetings.
