South Carolina Ports Authority highlights employee wellness focus during this week’s dedication of the new headquarters building at the Wando Welch Terminal. The building boasts consists of 80,000 square feet housing over 160 employees from the Charleston, SC region.

“The Port’s new headquarters offers a single, modern campus for employees with direct access to our biggest operating terminal, the Wando Welch,” said SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome. “The building design provides a open floor plan to support cross-functional internal communications, allowing our team to better collaborate and serve the needs of our customers and stakeholders.”

 

Features supporting employee wellness include an on-site fitness center, on-site primary care and occupational health services provided by MUSC Health, a cafeteria, sit-to-stand desks for all employee workstations as well as a walking trail.

Additionally, local students were granted the opportunity to select the names for the container cranes through a name competition. Out of the 300 entries, 2 student submissions were selected for their creativity in naming the cranes, “Momma Sapphire,” submitted by Sofia Morales from Sullivan’s Island Elementary School, and “Doctor Cranium,” submitted by Terrance Smalls from Hursey Elementary School.  Both schools will receive a $500 donation from the port as well.
