Perks and Programs

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

  • Diversity & Inclusion Program: WWT remains committed to our Core Values, THE PATH, which includes our continued focus on Trust, Humility, Embracing Change and Diversity of People and Thought, Passion, Attitude, Teamwork, Honesty & Integrity. A more diverse and inclusive workplace. Our Diversity and Inclusion program is designed to address unconscious bias with “Inclusion Includes U”. This program opens the door to discuss our employees’ different experiences and perspectives which adds something unique to our organization and part of the reason we are such a Great Place to Work.
  • NOVA Leadership Program: NOVA is a program to develop, retain and identify future WWT leaders, targeting potential leaders who are not yet in a management role or newly in a management role and have been a full-time employee for at least one year. Each NOVA Mentee is paired with a Mentor whose job is to expand the exposure and the network of the Mentee in order to further develop specific areas of interest. Mentors act as a resource in addressing professional development or career aspirations and goals. The goals of the program include: • Integrated Management Leadership concepts & tools reinforcement & advancement • Deepen WWT business knowledge and overall business acumen • Build confidence in speaking/presenting skills • Build a network of professional support • Develop set of personal and career goals
  • Internship Program: The WWT Internship Program is designed to give college students an opportunity to experience the workplace prior to graduation and enhance their education. Our program is focused on better preparing students for the business world, while providing valuable contributions to our company. WWT interns work in a dynamic and collaborative culture that highlights career opportunities and advancement. Events like “Breakfast and Lunch with the Executives” give the interns a chance to connect with and pick the brains of the company’s top-level executives. Interns also have a chance to build a community within their peer group with activities like a sand volleyball tournament and a collaborative end of summer project.
  • 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 are managed by Mercy, one of the top 5 large U.S. Health systems with over 700 Physicians, and a strong corporate health presence in the St Louis area.
  • Cultural Awareness Program: To educate our employees on how to embrace and manage diversity and inclusion, our Vice President of Global Supply Chain, presents workshops throughout the year on Cultural Awareness and how it impacts the business. During these sessions, employees are encouraged to participate and will learn cultural differences in communication, trust, coaching and having difficult conversations to effectively communicate across the globe. Our presenter covers a range of topics from personal traits to develop, tips for managing time zones, and building trust in different countries. For additional learning, we also offer recommended readings and further training through our learning management system.
  • Global Community Impact Program: The goal of the program is to encourage our employees to get involved and support charities in their community and around the globe. WWT will match all employee donations up to $1,000,000.
  • Wellness Program: At WWT, incorporating fitness is THE PATH WAY of life. We want employees to get active and stay healthy daily to achieve overall health. Every challenge is conducted on a monthly basis and at the end of the month, fitness prizes are awarded to the top three winning participants. We also have opportunities for our employees to participate and try local organized fitness classes - FOR FREE!  WWT more recently has taken on a platform, bringing awareness to mental health while providing resources to employees. Financial wellness educational classes are also provided as a benefit to our employees!
  • Telecommuting: 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.
  • 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. WWT's Day of Caring program provides employees with an extra paid day off to spend time at their favorite charitable organizations.
  • Women's Leadership Forum: The vision and mission of the Women's Leadership Forum (WLF) is to develop current and future leaders through networking and education. This program is also designed to create an open forum for discussion, encouragement and learning; while providing opportunities for relationship building and mentorship. Through the massive support of the Executive team and the entire organization, the WLF has held a number of successful events! From the Global Sales Meeting where leaders were able to share ideas and support amongst one another at a luncheon; to most recently enjoying a WLF Speed Mentoring session!
