Scotts Miracle-Gro makes products for the care and health of lawns. The Marysville, Ohio, company says it wants to nurture its 8,000 employees the same way.
"It's very much of a family culture here," says Jim King, a spokesman for the Scotts company, which offers discounted prescriptions, annual health screenings and some free medical care.
In states where it's legal, the company refuses to hire people who smoke.
"We've been screening for tobacco use for about a decade," King says. "We no longer employ tobacco users."
