“Most of Bee Sweet’s employees live in neighboring communities, so this new initiative will provide a plethora of benefits for all those that work here,” said Jasmine Reynozo, Bee Sweet Citrus’ HR Generalist. “Having accessible health care so close to work will help to create a healthy work environment and a stronger, healthier workforce.”

Bee Sweet said that employees qualify for the plan’s benefits 30 days after their start date, encouraging all of them to take full advantage of the new initiative.
