Investing in the
triple bottom line

Driving Purpose from Profit

We don’t believe in generating profit strictly to grow our business. We’ve adopted the triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit. Our high-quality products drive the profits that enable us to support our people and the planet. We believe so strongly in this philosophy that we share our profits with our employees to thank them for contributing to our success.

Profit Share

Our profit share program is continually evolving. Each year, the Leadership Team sets a targeted goal for profit sharing and regularly updates employees on our progress toward the goal. In 2021, after a year off from in-person celebrations during the height of the pandemic, we were excited to once again celebrate outdoors with smaller groups of employees.

Built on Innovation Program

Our core value of Innovation propels us to stay ahead of the competition and inspires us to encourage innovative thinking through our Built on Innovation Program. Despite the challenges of the last few years, employees and customers have continued contributing a range of creative ideas to promote our success. In 2021, we achieved incredible results through the program.
