When hundreds of your employees actually get your company’s logo permanently inked into their flesh, you must be doing something right.
That’s how loyal employees at the Minnesota-based Anytime Fitness are. More than 350 employees have Anytime’s logo — a purple running man — tattooed on various parts of their anatomies.
Granted, it’s not like the Anytime’s workers randomly went to local tattoo parlors to get their ink done. At monthly training sessions, the company has a tattoo artist on-site to mark up any willing staffers.
In addition to standard retirement and healthcare benefits, Anytime offers an array of nontraditional perks such as flexible hours, contests and giveaways that CEO Chuck Runyon believes is a huge reason for employees’ fierce loyalty.
According to Runyon — who is also adorned with a company tattoo: “We spend a third of our lives at work … if you don’t love what you do, that’s a miserable existence.”
