WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK
American Global Logistics's wellness program incorporates a psychological health platform as an innovative wellness practice to increase a healthy and safe environment for the employees. This practice goes hand-in-hand with the culture of AGL's “family-like” business. Employees are rewarded for their hard work and creativity with Employee Appreciation Day, raffles, time off from work, gym memberships, and lunch-and-learn with guest speakers (including physicians, licensed dieticians/nutritionists, fitness trainers, and financial planning specialists). Daily fresh fruit, healthy snacks, protein bars, and vitamin water are provided. Every year, employees are recognized and appreciated with a Wellness Appreciation Massage Day. Professional massage therapists schedule a day and employees are rewarded with massages. Each year, AGL employees compete in a "Biggest Loser" competition. The individual with the highest percentage of weight loss wins a pot of cash. AGL is committed to employee flexibility, allowing employees to manage their time to meet their needs inside as well as outside the office. AGL is a “family-like” business where employees truly respect one another. Senior management has an open-door policy, allowing employees to voice their opinions, concerns, and suggestions about the company.
