COFCO’s corporate culture is built on longevity. The company has been in business since 1946, and its employees’ average tenure is currently 11.43 years. “The fact that our turnover is extremely low and that employees stay for a very long time means that our employees believe in and live out our core values,” says Joan Waters. “Our management staff is approachable and helpful, and the livelihood of the employees is always the company’s main concern.” COFCO has quarterly team-building events, where new and old team members get a chance to introduce themselves to each other. In the summer, all employees share a picnic and BBQ that also features a visit from an ice cream truck.
“A great company culture boils down to employee satisfaction. If employees are fulfilled, supported and encouraged, they are most likely to be successful.”
