Atlantic has over 900 employees throughout the U.S., the Caribbean, and Central America.
With a company this size, building a tight knit community is key for keeping employees and branches connected and supporting one another.
We build our Atlantic community through events, recognition of achievement within our sales force, and important milestones for our employees. We also connect and support employees through our Wellness Program and company-wide challenges to encourage fitness and good health.
Atlantic and our employees contribute to our greater communities through volunteer efforts and participation in fundraising and community events.
Uniting the resources, skills, and talents of our people creates a remarkable community capable of improving, growing, and strengthening Atlantic to better serve our customers, our community, and ourselves.

Employees at Atlantic are committed to achieving success – success for our customers, success for the company, and success in our own careers. The leadership at Atlantic has created an environment that makes achieving success at all those levels a reality.
If you poll our employees, you’ll find many people who have been working at Atlantic for decades – some for over 40 years. This kind of loyalty is a direct result of smart, strategic leadership and leaders who care.
The loyalty we all feel to Atlantic and to our customers is gained through a supportive and ambitious atmosphere that encourages problem solving, teamwork, and creativity to meet our customers’ needs. We are also supported as a community through company-wide events and communications.
The culture that exists at Atlantic is one of family, of hard work, and success.
Atlantic has always encouraged good health and wellness among its employees. But with many of our sales and technical staff traveling extensively, support staff working long days at their desks, and inventory management staff operating forklifts and machinery throughout their shifts, good fitness and nutrition routines became more and more challenging.
THE WELLNESS PROGRAM
In an effort to prioritize good health for all employees, the Wellness Program at Atlantic was officially implemented in 2012 when we brought on a full-time Wellness Coordinator. At that time, we also introduced the first of our company-wide Fitbit Challenges to motivate everyone toward being active everyday.
THE RESULTS … SO FAR
That 6-month Fitbit Challenge was a huge success, with employees adopting exercise and healthy diets into their everyday lives. During the challenge, a total of 630 lbs were lost with an average of 6 lbs lost per participant. 85% of people with high blood pressure improved their readings. And 50% of employees who had high or critical triglyceride levels in the first year improved their levels the following year.
Today, nearly 80% of Atlantic employees take part in the Wellness Program and we’ve seen incredible, positive changes with our employees as a result.
Rusty, Wes, and all the senior management – I don’t think you could have made a better decision than to put this plan into place. Thank you for my new way of life.Kim Sholar
