Among our initiatives in support of these objectives are the following:

Celebrating Career Milestones

The Company’s senior executives host an annual recognition event for employees completing milestone anniversaries (i.e., multiple of five years) of service to the Company. We also show our appreciation for our employees by showing each of their names on the back of our annual report, listed by years of service.

Employee Survey

To help ensure that we are providing our employees with a fulfilling work experience, we measure employee satisfaction and engagement by conducting an employee survey each year. The survey is anonymous and focuses on factors such as employee engagement, compensation, management, interdepartmental cooperation and business direction. Survey results and trends are reviewed by our human resources staff and department heads to identify opportunities for improvement and to address performance gaps. We use this feedback to assess our performance in creating a rewarding work experience and career opportunities for our employees.
