Yes, Sunrise Labs has an impressive list of perks, but it’s their dedication to taking care of one another that bumped them to the No. 1 spot this year.
Take the department director who went to the home of an employee to perform plumbing repairs when the employee was reluctant to let a plumber of unknown COVID status into his home. Or consider the mechanical engineers who fix and provide bicycles for fellow employees and then another who organized after-work mountain bike rides. It’s the team members who deliver coffee and treats to a manager who’s had a particularly grueling day. It is also the group effort to raise $4,000 to help an employee who suffered a life-changing brain aneurysm.
It is also President and CEO Eric Soederberg, who holds one-on-one meetings with every employee annually to learn about their interests, career goals, suggestions for improvements, and if and how the company can better support their needs and desires. In a recent COVID-19 update, Soederberg asked people to consider “how we will come out of this crisis; or better yet; start thinking about how we want to come out of this crisis.”
And, of course, there are the aforementioned Sunrise perks. Among the many things this company offers are nutrition classes with personal coaching, chair massages, onsite yoga and a meditation group. The company has also held a virtual cooking class with Food Network’s celebrity Chef Michele
where employees learned how to make gnocchi and cannoli using ingredients and tools shipped to their homes in advance.
To meet the peeps at Sunrise Labs and all the 2021 Besties, join Business NH Magazine at the in-person Breakfast With The Best on September 30th with a keynote address from Jermaine Moore, president of The Mars Hill Group. Register here
