Catalyst Sports Medicine earns Family Friendly Workplace certification

Catalyst Sports Medicine recently received the highest level of certification as a "Gold" Family Friendly Workplace from the United Way St. Croix Valley's Success by 6 initiative. This certification recognizes businesses that actively invest in programs and practices that support employees and their families.

The family-friendly practices Catalyst Sports Medicine was recognized for included employer health savings accounts; 401(K) plan; paid leave; maternity, paternity and bereavement leave; a flexible variable day or week work schedule for employees; branded apparel and more.

"We've always had a core philosophy of family first. The expectation is that you'll accomplish your job description and get your work done. If that's the case — when your son or daughter has an event with school, sports, music, the arts or anything else that's important to the family, you shouldn't miss it by being at work. You never get the time back that you miss with the kids. We give our employees the flexibility so they don't have to miss any of those important moments. In addition to our flexible schedules, we try to offer above average compensation and benefits. If you expect above average work, like we do, it's only fair to compensate the team with above average pay and benefits," CEO John Knutson said.
