Polysource awarded top spot in 2017 Plastics News Best Places to Work

PolySource was recently awarded the No. 1 “Plastics News Best Places To Work” honor at the Plastics News Executive Forum, held in Naples, Florida.


“Plastics News Best Places To Work” is a survey and recognition program dedicated to identifying the best employers in the plastics industry. The process is managed by Best Companies Group. BCG is an independent research firm specializing in identifying and recognizing great places to work, and manages programs worldwide, including the U.S., Canada and the U.K.


The assessment is a two-part process designed to gather detailed data about each participating company. PolySource’s emphasis and recognized value of their employees transcends to their customers. Mutually respected and collaborative relationships are the basis for success with employees and customers.


“The attitude of ‘We are PolySource, we don’t work for PolySource’, drives a customer focused attitude,” stated PolySource President, Grant John. “This leads to a culture of a team attitude, with no one wanting to be the weakest link in the chain. We empower our team to make their own decisions resulting in more efficient and faster response time to our customers.


“As a result of our employees being committed to our customers, and to fellow team members, we reward our staff and their families with industry leading benefits. 100% fully covered health, dental and vision insurance, and a fully funded HSA (health savings account) with the goal of zero out-of-pocket expenses for health-related expenditures.”


Additional employee benefits include, 401(k) plan with company contribution, annual bonuses, flexible work hours and vacation policy, and company paid training and education. Other employee favorites are company paid daily lunches and cell phones, full use of the company vacation home in Florida, summer picnic, Christmas party, birthday and anniversary celebrations, Kansas City Royals & Chiefs tickets, and AAA auto coverage.


Giving back to the community and to organizations “bigger” than PolySource is a staple in the culture of the company, and a fundamental component of the business model developed by PolySource CEO, Greg Jacobson. Community service is looked upon as a team activity, not a responsibility. Organizations that PolySource are involved with include Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Summit Christian School, Character That Counts, Dream Factory, Brew for Books, and Tanager Place.


“I don't believe in give and take relationships. Good relationships never take. I believe in give and give relationships. You give and give back to your community, family, friends, co-workers, and customers”, commented Jacobson.
