Our Greatest Asset
The skill of our people is enhanced by good tools, and the company continually invests in areas that support current and future lifestyles. Examples include one-to-one marketing tools that are geared for upcoming generations, services that will integrate print into other media streams for more effective communication, and equipment to manufacture custom packaging that is made demographically, economically, and ecologically for our state. Growth and stability are high priorities as we continue to evolve to meet the needs of not only our customers, but our employees as well.
Doing good is part of our core values. We operate on the belief that technology driven, leading edge products and customer driven services can have a positive social impact. We believe that our community is strengthened by our volunteer efforts to assist nonprofit organizations, business associations, and other lifestyle groups. Our investment in time and money to help these organizations are a small way in which we help support their mission. In 2011, we were honored as Philanthropic Corporation of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals, a professional association of individuals responsible for generating philanthropic support for a wide variety of nonprofit, charitable organizations.
The success of the company means job security and long-term careers for our employees. We encourage individual self development and we regularly promote from within. Many of our employees began their career at EE in entry-level positions and through hard work and determination they have advanced to leadership roles. Nearly 25% of our current employees have worked here for more than 20 years.
We believe that our employees are our greatest asset and as such, we continue to invest in our people. The company offers a full array of employee benefits, including health insurance, paid vacation days, sick leave and a 401K plan. We are committed to annual training, education and conference attendance, both locally and nationally, for our employees. We are committed to the health and wellness of our employees. We have instituted a wellness program which provides educational opportunities in fitness and nutrition, as well as workplace stress reduction activities.
