Beyond the excellent benefits package and ownership opportunities through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), EEA began a Wellness Program in July of 2013 to motivate and encourage employees to live better and more fulfilled lives. After its inaugural year, a weekly fitness program led by employees was added. In the last four months a steady group of participants get together for running exercises, strength training circuits and water volleyball once per week. EEA also inspires Happiness in its employees through viewing and continual encouragement of the Happiness Advantage presented by Dr. Shawn Achor. In general, EEA employees work together and play together like family through various events organized internally such as our new annual chili cook-off, H.O.R.S.E. tournaments, potlucks, providing children with toys during the holidays, physical wellness challenges, and many more.
EEA also takes the family spirit into the community to volunteer with non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and the Capital Area Food Bank of Austin. In 2014 EEA supported the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Green Apple Day of Service by joining others across the globe on September 27 to encourage sustainability in schools.
