31 B E S T P L A C E S TO W O R K 2 0 1 6 LARGE COMPANIES [ 250+ employees ] A family-owned company with local roots and global reach, Diversifi ed is the epitome of progressive companies. Expanding the communications industry, Diversified purchased Maine's fi rst radio station in 1949 and launched Maine's fi rst television station four years later. That f o r w a r d - t h i n k i n g led a trajectory of innovation resulting in a portfolio of B2B products such as trade expositions, conferences and online communities which serve 15 industries in 12 countries today. "At Diversified, we have a unique approach to how we serve both our customers and each other," said Corporate V P o f H u m a n R e s o u r c e s Ja n i c e Rogers. "Diversifed is committed to serving the growing needs of its customer base, but taking care of them starts with taking care of our staff fi rst. We do that by doing everything we can to make sure they're excited to come to work each day." One of the ways DC achieves that is by providing a generous and comprehensive benefi ts package, an award-winning wellness program, an onsite fi tness center, and time needed away from work to recharge. The wellness program is the recipient of the American Heart Association's prestigious Platinum Achievement, Fit Friendly Innovation and Community Innovation awards. T h e p r o g r a m provides employees free access to onsite f i t n e s s cl a s s e s led by the best instructors in the industry. In addition to instructor-led classes, employees receive diverse wellness challenges, hefty incentives and on-site chair massages. It doesn't end there. Beach day office closures, flexible schedules, summer hours, generous vacation policy, unlimited sick time, rest days after travel/weekend work, fl exible lunch periods to exercise, volunteer or run errands, and opportunities to work from home are some of the other examples of how Diversifi ed strives to provide a work/life balance for employees. The company also promotes an overall culture that encourages out-of- the-box thinking and employee growth. As one employee said, "Diversified Communications encourages me to be creative and try new things. The ability to brainstorm on initiatives and ideas that might sound crazy allows me to grow in my career." Through open communication, training, mentoring and collaboration, Diversifed has proven success in an innovative, competitive and dynamic fi eld. "We recognize that creating and developing employee skills directly correlates to the success of the company by retaining quality employees and positioning Diversifi ed Communications as a great place to work," said CEO Ted Wirth.
