Oh, what a night! On Thursday, April 26, The Greater Green Bay Chamber and Current Young Professional Organization presented Schneider the esteemed distinction of the 2017 Next Generation Best Place to Work Award.
The award recognizes one business each year that demonstrates commitment to the development of professionals, adopts a healthy work life, values generational differences and institutes attraction and retention initiatives for talent within the organization.
How Schneider distinguished itself as a Next Generation Best Place to Work:
Philanthropic Commitment – As an enterprise, we set aside a portion of the company revenues to be used for charitable giving to organizations that align with our values. In 2017, we donated over 1.4 million dollars!
Training and Development Programs – We value education and offer Mentorship and Accelerated Development programs to ensure our associates achieve their highest potential. Schneider offers an impressive 300 online classes and 100 instructor-led classes for our team.
Growth Opportunities – We believe that it is essential for our associates to be in roles in which they thrive. Our leadership teams collaborate with associates to explore opportunities in which they are passionate. Schneider offers over 2,700 unique opportunities!
Flexibility – We are passionate about ensuring our associates are happy and healthy both in and outside of work. We offer flexible work schedules, (first, second, third or weekend shifts), job sharing, compressed work weeks and remote work opportunities to ensure a balanced work life.
Referrals – Our associates are happy to spend time at Schneider; and naturally they share their sentiments with their friends and family. This has resulted in 25 percent of all Schneider hires coming from internal referrals. Bonuses are also awarded for referrals!
We Listen to You – We highly value our teams feedback and regularly engage with our associates through surveys, round table meetings and open forums. In 2017, based on feedback, we transitioned to a smart casual dress code. Yay for jeans!
Schneider’s talent philosophy of attracting, developing, engaging and retaining talent has had a significant impact on the success of the organization. This philosophy has cultivated a collaborative culture with five generations working together to continue to make the company better than it was yesterday.
In addition to Schneider’s Next Generation Best Place to Work Award for the company, Schneider’s Vanya Koepke (pictured with Schneider Vice President of Talent Management and Associate Relations) was also named one of Green Bay’s top 15 young professionals under the age of 40. Schneider is proud to employ difference makers across all generations.
With just one year under my belt as a Schneider associate, I can whole heartedly say that I am proud to be on the team and hope to retire with the organization. #HiretoRetire #ChooseOrange
