Our Work Environment

We provide an opportunity to influence well being—we do this one employee, one company, and one family at a time. We’re forward thinking with how we treat our people—from dress code to work environment, from work hours to performance measurement—we care about what makes sense and not how things have always been. We want to build a team of employees that are interested to learn and grow as people and professionals. Our focus is to build a family atmosphere with a performance focus.

Regarding our hybrid work environment, what you can expect is:

  • Our office space is inviting and available and our team members are invited to utilize it,
  • At either a point-in-time or on a recurring basis, you may be asked to be present in our office for collaborative work,
  • Our general stance is that team members fully trained in their job have a choice where to perform their work most of the time, and
  • Team members in good standing have an option of when to work (most of the time), provided the team members work hours doesn’t interfere with the ability to do the job effectively.

Our west-side office location has undergone a major renovation, and we have been in our brand new space since April 1, 2022!

Our Value According to Our Customer, Human Resources Manager Jessica Wasilk

“It looks so good and it’s so well done that (employees) think there is a whole team behind me.

We have sent out surveys with Mailchimp and had 36 people respond. I send it out from (Steele) and I have 138 responses.

Engage absolutely has helped our productivity because it makes (HR) better. My last 3 new hires have said ‘I have never had such a great onboarding experience.’

One gentlemen said he felt like he has joined a real company. For him to say ‘I finally feel like I’m part of a professional organization’ is huge.”
