Health and wellbeing has always been an integral part of Cali Bamboo’s company culture, and over the past few years we have enhanced our wellness program to encourage our employees to lead healthier, happier lives. We are proud to announce that our efforts have paid off- we were recently named a finalist for the San Diego Business Journal’s 2015 Healthiest Companies Award!

Health and fitness is a very prominent part of Cali Bamboo’s culture that extends beyond office hours. It is common to see a group of employees working out or surfing together after work, or rallying up a group for a weekend 5k or half marathon. We hold each other accountable to fitness, encouraging everyone to participate in wellness initiatives.
