Why Southwest Behavioral and Health Services staff love their job

At Southwest Behavioral and Health Services in Phoenix, AZ, sharing the love is a team pursuit. The nonprofit submitted a group photo and asked employees from across the organization to share why they love their jobs. Their submission was the selected pick of the week during our "I Love My Job" campaign in February that highlights the positive aspects of work.

We want to know why you love your job. Send us your "I love my job" story or submission through the end of February. Our selected submission each week -- like the one from Southwest Behavioral and Health Services -- will receive a sweet treat and care package to share with coworkers.

Here is why staff at SB&H love their job:

Southwest Behavioral & Health Services (SB&H) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Phoenix, AZ, offering integrated behavioral and health services throughout Arizona. Our wellness Program for 2017 is focused on not only topics of physical health, but also subjects such as work-life balance, mindfulness and appreciation. Our first quarter theme is “Power of Appreciation” as a wellness component, and to that end, we have launched an internal campaign for different programs to submit to us why they love their job and/or team to be entered into a drawing to win a smoothie party.
