Company wellness and health

Part of working in a remote model is you get time back during the day where you may not be commuting or travelling as much as you would with a fixed office. We actively encourage you to take some of that time to look after yourself and use it for heath and wellbeing. In fact, 80% of employees at companies with robust health and wellness programs feel more engaged. We've seen levels of happiness, family time and social life increase as well as overall productivity! Perhaps you like going to the gym, walking the dog, taking music lessons? Whatever the exercise, both mental and physical, DNA supports a range of individual and group activities to promote health and wellness.
