SAN DIEGO – May 5, 2015 – Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., founder of RF SOI (silicon on insulator) and pioneer of advanced RF solutions, announces the company’s “Integrated Wellness” program has been named a finalist in the San Diego Business Journal’s 2015 Healthiest Companies Awards. Winners will be announced at an awards reception this Thursday, May 7 at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego.
“When our ‘Integrated Wellness’ program was launched in 2011, it further enforced Peregrine’s health and wellness culture and enabled the employee population to truly rally around wellness activities and events,” says Sarah Canfield, Peregrine Semiconductor’s director of human resources. “Not many innovative engineering companies run the Ragnar Relay Series every year or have such diversified wellness initiatives to provide employees with opportunities to make healthy choices. Peregrine’s wellness culture is part of what makes the company unique and is an important selling factor in recruiting top talent.”
The “Integrated Wellness” program includes a variety of year-round activities focused on three health and wellness core areas—fitness, nutrition and spirit. From nutritional seminars and weekly on-site massage therapy to “Active Monday” workouts, CSA pick-up, ping-pong tournaments and October pumpkin carving contests, there are a range of activities targeted at promoting health and wellness. Peregrine also sponsors local fitness races and sports teams throughout the year by covering the entry fees for employees and their families. Finally, every employee is allocated two paid days a year to use toward health and wellness, including volunteer work with a non-profit.
