For the third year in a row, Credit Karma was named one of The Healthiest Employers in the Greater Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal. The judges ranked the San Francisco-based company fifth in the mid-size company category based on a Healthiest Employer Index score measuring wellness programming. An article in the San Francisco Business Times September 9 said the award was designed “to recognize organizations that proactively shape the health of their employees” and featured Credit Karma’s in-office yoga classes.
Credit Karma’s voluntary Happy is Healthy wellness and culture program is a network of more than 50 committees and clubs promoted to advance mental and physical well-being. From the running club to the annual company-wide field day, everyone is encouraged to participate in their own way. Supported by the health and wellness technology platform Alloe.io, Happy is Healthy includes unlimited paid sick days, flex work hours, company social events and rewards, on-site bike racks, showers, meditation and mommy rooms, subsidized gym memberships and on-site yoga and meditation classes. Healthy snack socials featuring the fruit of the month, Wednesday socials and quarterly company-wide culture days make being healthy a group effort.
“At Credit Karma, we support healthy habits by creating a support network and then letting employees suggest new opportunities for eating well, staying active, giving back to the community and connecting with each other in meaningful ways. This has been an integral part of our company culture as we have grown dramatically over the last few years,” said founder and CEO Kenneth Lin.
