Top 5 Ways We Get, Keep and Grow Top Talent at Industrial Packaging
I’m sure there are many ways a company can attract top talent, but to keep them is all-together different. Our employee turn-over rate is very low because we value our team and our culture!
Here are our top 5 ways we keep our team happy and healthy, and loving the place they get to work at each day!
1. Competitive Pay
Industrial Packaging works very hard to make sure their employees are paid competitive wages. One of the major causes of employee turn-over is salary. Not paying an employee what they’re role is worth may cause them to be less productive, they may not be as committed to their job and it could cause them to be less happy overall.
When paying an employee a competitive salary, the employee could be more productive, have a better attitude, be more committed to their job and would likely be happier.
2. Quality Benefits
Along with competitive wages, it is also very important that we offer our employees the benefits that are most important to them and offer them at the best cost, service and value.
Industrial Packaging has added some great benefits over the years that help their employee’s overall health and well-being. Most recently, the company has offered a company paid Short term Disability policy to all of its employees.
Offering benefits that our employees want increases our team's loyalty to the company and shows that we are always looking out for our employee’s future.
3. A Safe and Healthy Environment
Making sure our employees have a safe work environment is a top priority at Industrial Packaging. Creating a workplace where people can voice their ideas and opinions without repercussions is crucial. Having scheduled huddles within departments each day allows our employees speak directly with management to discuss ideas or any concerns they may have.
Industrial Packaging has enrolled in the Healthy Actions plan through Blue Cross / Blue Shield to help their employees take the time to get an annual check up and get rewarded with up to a $300.00 gift card. When employees feel healthy, they are more productive and happier.
It’s a win/win for both the employer and the employee.
4. Core Values
It is essential that all Industrial Packaging employees comply with the company’s Core Values:
- We say what we think
- We do what we say
- We commit to success
- We treat people with respect
- We embrace change
We have discovered that when our employees embrace the company’s Core Values, it provides everyone with a sense of unity and gives them a clear expectation of how they will be treated and how they should treat others.
5. Company Celebrations and Years of Service recognition
Industrial Packaging has shown over the years how much they appreciate their employees by hosting company celebrations, along with recognition of Years of Service awards. Acknowledging our employee’s milestones is a great way to let them know that we care about them and their accomplishments!
Being able to keep our top-talent employees can be hard, but with the right tools and incentives it makes it a lot easier.
We strive to be the best of the best when it comes to providing a safe, healthy, and happy work environment for our team. If you are interested in joining our team, click the button below to apply for one of our open positions, or one that may be available in the future!
