- “The company really cares. During COVID, senior management has checked in with me multiple times and even sent customized gift baskets to each person with a handwritten note from the CEO and chairman.”
- “The employee engagement opportunities such as lunch/learns, monthly birthday celebrations … allow me to meet with my co-workers in a laid-back environment instead of just talking about work. Because of COVID, we can’t have our typical events but the company has scheduled virtual lunches and happy hours for the same effect.”
- “The leadership is caring and communicates well. I appreciate the personal calls I have gotten from the president and CEO checking in during the pandemic ensuring I felt comfortable with the new work conditions and doing well mentally.”
