Customer Relations Manager Charley Engelfried on showing employees they are valued

"We honor our employees with informational monthly meetings where we reward the Remarkable Player of the Month. These employees receive $250 and an individual photo that is displayed in the showroom. We also have a Remarkable Player of the Year that the managers vote on. We announce them at our annual company holiday party, and they receive $500 and a vacation weekend anywhere in Oregon. We also do annual profit-sharing meetings to go over all financials and the company's performance in the previous year and announce how much the company is adding into employees' 401(k) accounts."

Director of Business Development Brian Schindler on attracting employees

"We have increased our 'You've Been Discovered' incentive to a total of $800 for each new hire they refer, $400 at the time of hire and an additional $400 after 90 days. This is for current employees because we have found that current great employees normally have provided us with new great employees. We give each of our employees a business card-size form that says 'You've Been Discovered,' and they hand those out to people they encounter in day-to-day life that they see doing a remarkable job."
