Now, it's not just healthy snacks and wellness newsletters that make The Karis Group a healthy workplace. To us, it's all about balanced, all-around health.
We hold at least 4 quarterly wellness activities from salad potlucks, to hiking to paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake, we view our wellness activities as exercise and a time for togetherness away from the stresses that may come with day-to-day work life.
In addition to these activities, The Karis Group wants to ensure employees have a healthy relational balance to their work and personal lives.
Our company brings in relational coaches at no cost to employees to train each person on relational needs to ensure employees are fulfilled inside and outside of the office. We welcome family and friends at our wellness and social events in an effort to get to know our employees on a deeper level than just their 9 to 5 tasks.
What does the above mean for our wellness program? It means our programs aren't like many others. It means we want to be a different, healthy, extraordinary place to work. The Karis Group truly cares about our employees, our clients, our members, our city and our vision.
