We offer comprehensive medical, dental, and vision packages with telemedicine benefits and income protection insurance and pet insurance. We provide healthy food options at our offices so employees can enjoy complimentary, nutrition-rich meals and snacks. To complement our health focus, we encourage our employees to participate in our onsite fitness classes (including weekly boot camp sessions and yoga), workout challenges, or a subsidized gym membership.

2. We Have KILLER Corporate Events
We’re a company that enjoys having fun and we have an incredibly strong ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality! As a Dataprise team member, you can expect several company-sponsored events every year, as well as quarterly team-based outings where you and your team go out and experience adventures together.
Company-wide events include:
- Winter Gala: a formal event held towards the end of winter where we get dressed up, eat, drink, and dance the night way celebrating the year’s accomplishments.
- Family Picnic: exactly as it sounds! Dataprise team members gather together with their families and we kick back with great food, games, and music!
- Holiday Happy Hour: another party! This company-wide event is held around the holiday season. We dress in ‘ugly sweaters’ and sing karaoke together.
- All-Hands Meeting: in late March, we host our Annual All Hands meeting. This meeting gathers all employees for a day to reflect on the previous year and look forward to how Dataprise will continue winning with IT in the upcoming year. All Hands provides valuable transparency into our organization and is a great way to share the vision and goals for the upcoming year as well as engaging with employees on upcoming initiatives in departments throughout the company.
In addition to our company-sponsored events listed above, we also have a ‘Fun Committee’ which is a committee of Dataprisers who plan events for all of our team members to participate in. These events include fun runs, baseball games, office potlucks, happy hours and much more!
