Seco received the honor for its innovative employee-engagement strategies, which represent best practices in human resources.

When it comes to its employees, Seco follows a formula that is similar to how it goes about satisfying customers. The Seco Way focuses on listening to each of its customers and employees to better understand and address their exact needs. Seco believes that by truly caring about its clients and employees, it can consistently deliver winning solutions.

Seco goes beyond the traditional pay scale philosophy by continually finding new ways to keep its employees motivated and satisfied.

“Over the years, we’ve discovered that when you give employees more than a paycheck, you see a big difference in productivity, satisfaction and retention,” said Jennifer Ostroff, Seco’s HR Programs Manager. “Because the metalcutting industry is highly competitive, we work hard to retain our talent.”

The company’s Employee Value Proposition includes the following commitments:
  *   Taking a solutions-orientated approach to quality and innovation for overall company success
  *   Offering comprehensive training that empowers employees to achieve optimal performance
  *   Ensuring leaders inspire and build trust through transparency and accessibility
  *   Building cross-functional teams to drive future company growth
  *   Maintaining a comprehensive benefits plan that exceeds traditional practices by helping employees achieve a healthy work and life balance
  *   Providing an environment where employees feel valued and rewarded

“Our employees are our most valuable assets and the key to Seco’s success,” concluded Ms. Ostroff. “When it comes to our employees, we want to inspire them, cultivate their productivity, sharpen their skills and celebrate their accomplishments as a way to enhance their work environment and motivate them to continue to deliver superior value to our customers.”
