Deeper engagement across your organization.
The level of workforce engagement is what impresses Mark Rauenzahn, Plant Manager at the Henderson Ocean Spray conversion facility, which ships 10 million cases of juice annually. The willingness and ability to give and receive feedback are quality drivers across all levels of the plant, from management and salaried staff to hourly manufacturing workers.
“This area is a melting pot. You have a variety of folks from all over the country who are very willing to come in and learn and do the right work. The theme that I see here is people come here to establish themselves, but they also come here with the willingness to start a new life, start a new career. And that lends itself to opportunity.”
