Superior Construction Named a ‘Healthiest Employer’ by the Jacksonville Business Journal
The company also made the magazine's annual Top 400 Contractors list
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 20, 2022) — Superior Construction, an American family-owned infrastructure contractor, has been recognized as one of the Healthiest Employers in Jacksonville by the Jacksonville Business Journal. Superior was one of the businesses selected to receive this award for proactively supporting their employees’ well-being.
“As a family-owned company, we support our employees’ entire wellbeing, whether they’re working physically demanding jobs in the field or supporting that work back in the office,” said Nicholas Largura, Superior’s CEO. “It’s important that we promote healthy habits, so all our employees – from our leadership to our craftsmen in the field – can enjoy their jobs along with a positive work-life balance.”
Health and wellness are ingrained in the company culture at Superior. In addition to offering a comprehensive benefits package, Superior launched its wellness program in 2018, provided at no cost to its employees. Through the program, employees have access to on-site biometric screening and health coaching. The convenience of not having to set an off-site appointment makes workers more likely to keep up with recommended screenings. They also receive discounts on health insurance premiums based on health outcomes and participation in health coaching calls.
Through an additional Superior Strength Program, employees can even be reimbursed up to $120 a year for money spent on gym memberships, fitness subscriptions or apps, personal training, and many more exercise-related activities. Superior employees also have access to a telemedicine program via Teledoc to ensure expedient and high-quality medical care.
