“Our company vision statement communicates how we evaluate and recruit. Our No. 1 focus is our employees and giving them the opportunities they seek. That is the high level approach that each one of us support and adhere to. The more technical part of this is we use several steps to make this occur. We have purchased a program called the Cultural Index. We profiled some of our most successful team members and created what they call a C job. This C job is actually the profile of the ‘perfect person’ for that position. Then as part of our hiring process, all applicants complete a Cultural Index as a way for us to see how close they measure to the C job we use for that position. We also have multiple interviews for each new candidate as well as making sure they pass standard background and drug testing. We utilize technology, i.e. Web sites, and internal recruiting by our local and corporate HR team. As a company, we look for hardworking, dedicated individuals that match well with our company values and believe in service above self.”
