Mold manufacturer/molder PTI Engineered Plastics prides itself on its low turnover. According to President (and Founder) Mark Rathbone, the company has less than one percent turnover, even through their toughest times. “Our employees are our future, and without them, growing as a company would be difficult,” he says. “The challenge of finding skilled help and retaining employees is not only related to wages—but also healthcare, health awareness and wellness activities, a healthy work environment, on and off-site functions, fringe benefits and employee involvement.”
The company considers in-house training a focal point to provide personnel with career advancement opportunities; and often promotes from within to allow employees the opportunity to create their own career path. “This not only promotes an empowering workforce and culture—but fosters growth as a company,” Rathbone affirms.
