Perks and Programs

We asked Schweiger Dermatology Group to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Dream On: The Dream On program is designed to give back to our hard working employees who “Dream” of an experience or thing they may need, but don't have the means to attain on their own. Once an employee submits their Dream, the Dream On committee reviews and awards Dreams on a sporadic basis. Dreams are never denied, they simply remain on file and employees can swap out their dream if circumstances change and they have a stronger need for a different Dream. To date, we have over 200 Dreams on file and have granted over 12 Dreams. A few to note is we've helped 3 employees avoid homelessness by paying for their deposit, first and last month's rent to get into their own apartments, we sent an employee to her home country to see her dying grandmother and recently sent an employee and her daughter on their first vacation to Disney.
  • Schweiger Star of the Quarter: Schweiger Dermatology Group has a peer-to-peer nomination programs where staff can acknowledge each other for good work. Winners receive a personalized bobblehead, certificate, $250 award and attends an annual dinner as a group with our CEO and members of the management team.
  • Company Events: Schweiger Dermatology Group hosts an annual Year-End celebration party for all of our team members and provides transportation to and from for those employees who live a long distance away from Manhattan. Schweiger Dermatology Group also hosts a yearly "SDG Summit" where we close down all of our offices and transport staff to come together and review company goals, mission and core values. This is also an opportunity where SDG recognizes our rockstars through an awards ceremony.
  • Employee Discounts: Schweiger Dermatology Group employees and their friends and families are eligible for discounts on products and cosmetic services.
  • Employee Referral Program: Schweiger Dermatology Group has an employee referral program where staff can be awarded up to $1,000 for referrals.
  • Daily Shout Outs: For our hard working team members that go above and beyond, we celebrate by sending out daily shout-out emails, applauding their great work.
  • Training and Development: Schweiger Dermatology Group offers internal and external training opportunities for staff, including national certifications.
