We invest in our employees in many ways – 100% tuition reimbursement, a 7% contribution to their 401Ks (for you younger people, ask your dad, that’s hard to beat) and through a health insurance plan that costs employees only $1 per year. One thing the leadership team never really talks about though, is the company’s profit-sharing benefit. Anyone who knows me knows that I love to talk so who better than me to spill the beans!
AIS has a long tradition of profit sharing. Every year, a percentage is carved out of company profits and shared with every single employee. The best part about it… there are no biases for salary, title or job category; everyone is treated equally. Percentages are based on how long the person has worked at the company and that’s it.
This is our opportunity to give back to every employee, thanking them for their role in helping us succeed each year. Although every now and then I hear the golf course calling my name, I couldn’t be prouder to work for a company that ensures every single person feels valued, which motivates them to do their best. It keeps us all connected and gives us a common goal; make it happen and work hard every day.
Profit sharing is just one of many things we do differently around here and I’m grateful that we can invest in our employees this way. I enjoy working with so many talented people who put their time and energy right back into AIS.
