With a strong mission to promote health, productivity and fewer sick days, SalesQuest, a Lawrence MA based high tech market research firm, recently offered their employees a paid membership to a local farmer’s market, giving them weekly fresh produce to take home to their families.
LAWRENCE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SalesQuest, (www.salesquest.com), the sales intelligence company formerly known as SELIGENCE, today announced that it has recently added “fruits and veggies” to their benefits program.
Last year SalesQuest made a commitment to the health of their employees by offering to pay for unlimited classes to a local Yoga Studio, Yoga Unbound (www.yogaunbound.com) also located at 60 Island Street. Yoga Unbound Director Gail Mann explains, “It is really great that companies like SalesQuest understand how a yoga practice can increase their bottom line and at the same time keep their employees in shape both physically and mentally.”
SalesQuest co-founder Ryan Murray heard about the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program being offered through Groundwork Lawrence (www.groundworklawrence.org) to local residents and employees of businesses located in the KGR Building at 60 Island Street in downtown Lawrence. He felt that it would be an excellent idea to offer the plan to their employees. The CSA program provides fresh produce grown at the local Brox Farm in Dracut MA. Along with other CSA shareholders, the SalesQuest employees will receive boxes containing a variety of vegetables, fruits and cut flowers weekly for 13 weeks during the summer and fall. “We already offer other healthy programs such as yoga and meditation and we feel that this is another way to promote healthy, productive, and happy employees”, explained Murray. According to Rose Gonzalez, CSA Program Manager for Groundwork Lawrence, “We started the CSA program to encourage better health and increase consumption of fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Having a company sponsor CSA shares for their employees helps us create a broader impact than we had ever dreamed.”
