ReadyTalk believes its success is contingent upon happy, engaged, and caring workers. The company keeps its employees satisfied, providing 100 percent of healthcare coverage for employees and their families, and also offers an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), and a generous 401K plan. ReadyTalk goes a step further by addressing the stress levels and mental health of its employees. Yoga classes and massage services frequent the ReadyTalk offices, and the company also covers part of its employees' gym memberships. "People taking care of themselves are going to have higher levels of energy and going to be more balanced in terms of work life," says Dan King, CEO of ReadyTalk. "All of these things are thought about in the context of what's in our interest and what's in our employee's interest." Company organized ski outings to Winter Park don't hurt, either.
