Control systems maker ProSystems Integration LLC, which will be celebrating 20 years in business in 2020, focuses on employee futures, work-life balance and community.
The Westerly, R.I.-based company contributes 3 percent to eligible employees' 401(k) plans, whether the employee participates or not. A retirement representative explains the plan and answers questions at quarterly meetings. The company also pays 80 percent of employees' benefits and 50 percent for their dependents.
Employees can earn up to $50 per quarter by participating in ProSystems' wellness program, which includes tracking steps and other healthy habits.
After 90 days of employment, team members receive four sick/personal days. Vacation time is given after one year of employment; it can be rolled over a maximum of six weeks as well as cashed out a maximum of four weeks.
"We don't believe in a use it or lose it policy at ProSystems Integration," the company stated in its Best Places to Work questionnaire. "We encourage employees to use the time they have earned."
Employees can use both unpaid or paid time off to fulfill family obligations and doctors' appointments. The company also has surprise paid days such as Christmas Eve.
ProSystems has contributed to the Stonington Public School's color run, donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, funded a pace clock and cable system for the Westerly-Pawcatuck YMCA Dolphins swim team and sponsored swim-a-thons.
The company also has friendly competitions with computer games, potluck lunches and pizza parties.
"[The employees'] focus and commitment to do their best each and every day has made ProSystems Integration one of the best places to work for going on 20 years," the company said.
