Moving to our new Berkeley space in 2011 created a lot of excitement amongst our employees, as we’re making more connections with our new community, and incorporating sustainability and wellness programs into our daily lives at home and at work.
A new grassroots effort, ALOHAS, which stands for Annie’s Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability, seeks to combine health, happiness, education and sustainability efforts at Annie’s to ensure a thriving workplace where our people can learn and grow.
Biking to Work – Our employees take advantage of our central location in Berkeley which has close proximity to public transportation and bike lanes. Through the bike commuter incentives, which reimburses up to $500 for commuter bike or retrofits to an existing bike, Annie’s is also supporting employees to decrease their bunny footprint!
Commuter Benefits- Annie’s offers a carpooling incentive for those who add extras to their car to get to work. Learn more here.
Working Out – Our new on-site gym is a great way for our people to work up a sweat and take a break from the desk.
Fresh, organic produce from the garden - Our on-site container and hanging wall gardens produce pounds of organic vegetables and herbs for our employees to take home each week. This summer, we’re growing cucumbers, pole beans, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, lettuce, and carrots.
Having fun – Each year we host several events to bring our employees together and celebrate each other. From the end-of-year holiday parties to the summer BBQs and Halloween events, we take the time to get to know each other, eat good food, and have fun!
