Rackspace Supports Employee Wellness
This week we’re excited to be running our Racker wellness week to get our whole team focused on wholesome eating, sports activities and healthy lifestyle habits.
It’s no secret that we all need to be healthy and happy on the inside if we are going to perform well on the outside. So given our goal to constantly deliver (Fanatical) support to our customers every day, we want to ensure our Rackers feel healthy and engaged when they come into work.
As much as Rackspace is about hosting and cloud computing resources, it’s the Human Resources that grow with us that make this company what it really is. So this week we’ll be keeping our personal disk drives humming with a variety of activities such as rowing competitions, free healthy-option breakfasts, work-life balance workshops and also top exercise tips.
The wellness week initiative is the kind of activity that has seen Rackspace recognised as an employee-focused company determined to create a really great 21st Century working environment for our team — and yes, we do call them our “family”.
Just yesterday FORTUNE magazine ranked us number 74 on its annual list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” in the world. We believe Rackers can only provide Fanatical Support to our customers if they are happy and healthy themselves. What are you doing to keep your colleagues and employees healthy? Post your comments!
