Interesting Fact:Understanding how all aspects of the company operate is key here. The company allows for cross-training between positions and departments, often assigning individual employees on an interim basis to work in other aspects or areas of the business.
Best Practices #1:The company pays tuition and registration fees for employees to attend formal coursework and/or industry specific educational offerings many times and for many employees every year.
Best Practices 2:We encourage cross-training between positions and departments. We often assign individual employees on an interim basis and at their option to work in other aspects or areas of the business.
Differentiating Practice:We are a small family like and family oriented environment. All special functions and holiday parties include spouses, significant others and many times children of employees. We believe in and practice a philosophy that employees must be encouraged and allowed to attend to their own family and personal well-being before they can be expected to perform the duties of their job well. Up until this year and a recent spate of staff turnover for unrelated reasons the majority of our staff had been employed by the company for more than 10 years.
