Perks and Programs

We asked World Wide Technology, Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Onsite Family Health Center: WWT knows the importance of offering good health benefits, and the value of being concerned with the overall health and wellness of our employees and others covered by our health plan. Because of these things, WWT has decided to offer employees and families access to two on-site health centers. Our Family Health Centers will be managed by WeCare TLC, a medical management firm that operates on-site and near-site primary care clinics for employers.
  • Tread-desk Workstation: Tread-desk workstations have been established on campus to give employees the opportunity to exercise while working. The desks can be reserved through an Outlook appointment and they’re in high-demand. Employees that take advantage of this perk say that they feel better moving a little throughout the day and get more accomplished. It’s a great way to incorporate wellness into the workday and increase overall productivity.
  • Day of Caring: There’s a culture of caring throughout World Wide Technology. This culture continues to spread as we hire new employees who reflect our Core Values and want to do good things for others. In 2012, WWT rolled out its Day of Caring program that provides employees with an extra paid day off to spend time at their favorite charitable organizations.
  • Telecommuting: In 2007, feedback from our company-wide employee opinion survey showed the desire of employees to be able to work from home on a regular basis. The Executive Management Team listened. Shortly after, WWT implemented a telecommuting policy that allowed employees, depending on their job functions, to work from home 1-3 days per week. Access to advanced technology and systems made this an easy transition for the company. This benefit has allowed the organization to scale and handle global expansion while limiting the number of facilities necessary to house employees. Plus, eliminating a morning and evening commute from an employee’s day allows them to spend more time with their families ultimately enhancing work-life balance. This benefit has been very well received among employees since its inception.
  • Massage Sessions: Periodically throughout the year, WWT partners with our Employee Assistance Program vendor to provide employees at different locations with free 5-10 minute massages. These sessions are always in high-demand and fill up quickly.  In our Edwardsville, IL location, where stress levels can be high due to long hours and customer demands, we hold regular massage sessions throughout the year to provide employees with a break from the daily grind.
