What does it mean to be one of “The Best?”
The short answer is, always striving for better.
Each of the last 6 years, Sealstrip Corporation has participated in the Pennsylvania Best Places to Work survey, and each year the easy reseal and easy open system innovators made the list. This year, Sealstrip placed 15th!
Sealstrip’s key to success is how they look forward.
Looking back, they can see that they have done very well against the average, regularly scoring higher than other small/medium employers. However, Sealstrip’s key to success is how they look forward. Management reviews the anonymous results from the survey and looks for areas to improve.
“It’s not just how we fair next to the competition each year, we strive to beat our personal bests and do better for our employees,” states Sealstrip President Heather Chandler. Her statement is definitively backed up by the fact that 100% of Sealstrip employees submitted that “leaders of this organization care about employees’ well-being,” and “this organization treats me like a person, not a number.”
“There is a direct correlation between the satisfaction of our employees, and the quality and commitment in our services and products.”
This positive attitude is reflected in the company’s values: Excellence, Family, Individual Development, Innovation, Integrity, and Teamwork. “Our company culture absolutely informs our business practices,” Chandler continues, “There is a direct correlation between the satisfaction of our employees, and the quality and commitment in our services and products.” This sentiment is truly evident by the 100% of employees saying, “I am willing to give extra effort to help this organization succeed.”
Chandler remembers there have been many instances where everyone’s commitment shined through unforeseen circumstances or a tight turnaround. The survey illustrates that Sealstrip employees feel their employers have a personal interest in their well-being, and thus the employees feel an equal personal investment into the products/services of the company. “It all comes back to our values, we strive to represent those as best we can every day, and the PA Best Places to Work is both a benchmark and an honor.”
