2012 Top Places to Work in PR: Dixon Schwabl


Dixon Schwabl 

“Fun” is a line item in Dixon Schwabl's annual budget, so there are funds available for every employee. In addition, managers are given a budget to use on their team. Teams regularly have lunches, happy hours and other events at area restaurants to encourage camaraderie and teambuilding. 

Dixon Schwabl offers many wellness programs and sports teams, including indoor and outdoor soccer, softball, bowling, Wii bowling, on-site bocce, Weight Loss for Wellness sponsored by a local nutritionist and the Wegmans Food Markets "Eat Well Live Well" program focusing on healthy eating and 10,000 steps a day. In addition, the agency has held defensive driving classes sponsored by Liberty Mutual. 

The agency provides free financial consultation to encourage employees to invest in their future and plan ahead, with representatives from Principal Financial Group and Xceed Financial Credit Union offering one-on-one tips and advice. 

In 2012, the agency continued its popular Weight Loss for Wellness program with a fully paid free consultation from a nutritionist and personal trainer, who confidentially advised employees on nutrition and wellness, including calculating BMI. This year in addition to an individual overall winner receiving a $500 Wegmans Food Markets gift card, the winning team of eight employees each received $200 in gift cards from an area restaurant and spa. The group results were 188 pounds lost in 10 weeks, with an average of 9 pounds per participant.
