The Psychologically Healthy Workplace 

Hawaii Business Equipment, Inc.
2001 Award Winner: Small Business Category

The company has 47 employees, and the entire company practices "kaizen," the philosophy of continuous improvement. Every member of the company is in a kaizen group, which addresses issues ranging from increasing productivity to stress in the workplace. One recent stress management program included hiring a massage therapist to come on site 3 hours a week, and the company pays for two-thirds of the cost.

They work and play together, and have a workout room and exercise equipment on site. The entire building is so clean you could probably eat off the warehouse floor, but you'd probably prefer the fully-equipped kitchen, where snack and lunches are provided periodically by the company.

Managers and supervisors attend an 8-month training program. Additionally, the company provides tuition reimbursement programs for all employees to further their education in job-related areas. There is ongoing education in new products, sales training and technical support, and one-on-one meetings are held regularly with employees to to review their activities and support them in meeting their departmental goals.

The company annually supports the Lions organization with Christmas dinners and presents for the elderly and handicapped, and also participates in the annual drives for the Aloha United Way, United Cerebral Palsy, the Breast Cancer Foundation's "Race for the Cure," and the American Diabetes Association Walk.
