NEW YORK, June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mediaplanet today publishes Employee Appreciation as a section within select markets of USA Today. Employee Appreciation is an educational resource addressing important topics on employee benefits, wellness programs, consulting and the value of work-life balance, that aid in building work cultures that employees thrive in. The report will be distributed to over 1 million readers within the weekend edition of USA Today with the help of Great Places to Work Institute, Corporate Voices for Working Families, Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh, and other leaders in the industry.
"Are perks all it takes to create a great workplace? And perhaps more fundamentally, why do these businesses do it?" are questions Ricardo Lange, CEO of Great Places to Work Institute, Inc. poses.
"Rather than a prescribed recipe of policies and programs, great workplaces are built through the day-to-day relationships that employees experience," says Lange. "Employees believe they work for great organizations when they consistently trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with."
As the CEO of Zappos.com and author of "Delivering Happiness," Tony Hsieh is an advocate for positive company culture, and has implemented 10 core values to ensure that a company's values are aligned with the employees' personal values. In addition to Hsieh's insights, readers will also find educational editorial on how health care reform helps business and working families; health savings account; saving money on health care costs; the benefits of utilizing outsourced HR; work-life balance, and more within this publication.
