“Our responsibility as leaders is to make sure that all employees have the opportunity to grow as individuals, team members and corporate citizens,” says Kenneth Stober. To accomplish this, Mueller Die Cut Solutions relies on its core values, which drive every employee’s behavior and help in the decision-making process. The company even built a recognition program around its values. Employees can nominate others they believe embody Mueller’s values, and the most deserving are publicly recognized at monthly meetings. Employees are empowered to be successful in other ways too, such as through Mueller’s three-part wellness program, which encourages financial, physical and emotional wellness. Mueller also created a Helping Hands Fund. Both employees and the company contribute to the fund, which is designed to help employees through difficult times.
