It’s not often that a company is named one of the best places to work, let alone receive the ranking for four consecutive years. But, Moen has done exactly that – the #1 faucet brand in North America is honored to be voted one of the Top Workplaces in Northeast Ohio by The Plain Dealer. The list is based on employee feedback in anonymous surveys. The announcement was made in the June 21st edition of the Cleveland-based daily newspaper.
The Top Workplaces Award, now in its sixth year, recognizes area employers who are cultivating a culture where workers feel valued, respected and are fairly compensated for their work. Thousands of employees in Northeast Ohio were surveyed by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and engagement. The survey included questions regarding company leadership, training, compensation, workplace flexibility and diversity. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States.
“Employee satisfaction is a top priority at Moen, and we’re absolutely thrilled to receive this honor for the fourth year in a row,” said Robyn Hill, vice president of human resources, Moen. “Our people have been instrumental in building the company’s reputation and driving growth, not only in Northeast Ohio but across the globe.”
Comments from previous surveys speak volumes about the work environment at Moen. One employee said, “I feel like an integral part of the team. The atmosphere is the best I have ever had in my professional career of 30 years.” Also, the senior managers are praised for their work ethic; “They’re willing to work hard in doing what’s right for the company.” Another employee noted, “They care about you as an individual and support your work-life balance.”
Moen is committed to its associates – offering healthy lifestyle and community support programs. At the corporate headquarters in North Olmsted, Ohio, for example, Moen provides free flu shots and onsite mammograms. The company also holds an annual Health Fair and conducts regular blood pressure and cholesterol testing. In addition, all Moen associates are encouraged to join its state-of-the-art, staffed Wellness Center and participate in programs including fitness challenges and lunch ’n’ learn sessions.
As part of Moen’s ongoing dedication to giving back, a global team has been established to support social causes and organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House and The United Way. In addition to monetary contributions, Moen associates also donate their time throughout the year.
Moen also encourages associate development. Moen University serves as Moen’s unique, strategic learning framework that provides a comprehensive selection of e-learning tools, onsite classes and university/professional development opportunities. The company provides additional supports to its associates through a generous tuition reimbursement program and a college scholarship program for their children.
Promoting from within is a priority for Moen. Accordingly, all open positions are posted internally, resulting in more than 40 percent of job openings being filled by current associates.
“Our associates are the foundational element of this organization – we work hard as a team everyday to make this the best work environment, while striving to do good for the community,” Hill added. “As a result, we have passionate employees who are consistently creating thoughtfully designed products, care about the needs of our customers and know they’re making a positive difference.”
