At DSI, we expect a lot from our team, that is why we provide both traditional and discretionary benefits to reward hard work. We have been in business forty years, with the average employee staying with the company for 12 years. At DSI, taking care of our employees has always been top priority, which in turn creates a strong company culture.
A 2013 study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation Health Benefits Survey found that 57% of small companies (3-199 employees) offer health benefits for their employees. Many of the companies that offer health plans have high deductibles. Here at DSI we cover 100%! At the beginning of the year DSI contributes 50% into employee health savings accounts to cover deductibles. In addition to health plans, we also fund gym memberships. Healthy minds and bodies are both extremely important in creating a positive work environment.
Preparing our team for a comfortable retirement and ensuring future security has always been a mission at DSI. Offering 401k matching plans for our team is a way for us to provide a pre- tax nest egg for DSI employees. We also believe in the importance of professional and personal development, each employee receives an $1500 education stipend. Additionally, at the end of the fiscal year, each DSI employees receives a bonus. Extra financial perks show DSI team members how much we appreciate their hard work.
Nothing says I work at a cool office than a bubble hockey table. That’s right, at DSI we have a bubble hockey and corn hole game available to all employees to unwind. The breakroom at DSI is also stocked with everyone’s favorite beverage and on Fridays donuts are enjoyed by all. Have you ever felt immense guilt leaving your pooch at home? At DSI we welcome dogs, in fact, we encourage you to bring your furry friend. It’s pretty simple, having a little fun at work creates a positive corporate culture.
Just Because We Appreciate You Perks
This category of perks is something that sets us far apart from other businesses. DSI employees divide up season tickets to the Colorado Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche and Broncos games to be used with their family and friends. When DSI employees reach their 15, 20 and 25 year anniversaries we plan a trip for them. There is not a standard DSI anniversary trip, each trip is planned to suit the individuals interests. All travel, accommodations and activities are planned for each trip by DSI. We have sent employees to Mexico for relaxation, Vegas to watch their favorite performer and skiing in Whistler!
Team Building Perks
To strengthen communication and bonds between employees, we like to have team building activities throughout the year. During the spring we head to the mountains for our annual company retreat. In the summer, DSI has a company picnic to bring together all employees and their families. Our most anticipated event is the company kickoff held at the Four Seasons Denver each year. At this meeting we reflect on where we have been and where we are going, then we just have fun. DSI covers all food, drink and lodging for all employees and a guest. Company events are important to reflect on what we have accomplished, company growth and most importantly celebrate our achievements.
At DSI, our core values are excellence, integrity, innovation and teamwork. Providing company perks not found with most small businesses ensures a great company culture that creates a high employee retention rate and outstanding productivity, that is worth every penny.
