Human Resources Manager Ryan Sowell on rewarding employees and showing them they are valued:
"Team members receive tenure recognition pins on every fifth anniversary with the company. We host a quarterly employee recognition day for all employees."
Sowell on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"We utilize all of our staff to cover our hours of operation. All team members partake, ensuring we have adequate coverage. We've identified our slower periods and tend to staff these periods leaner than those hours that tend to be more productive. Each team member has just one 'bell-to-bell' day each week followed by a late day or day off."
