CLEVELAND – Vitamix® has been selected as a 2018 NorthCoast 99 winner. The NorthCoast 99 program recognizes 99 companies that represent the best workplaces for top talent focused on results, innovation and growth in Northeast Ohio. Applicants are evaluated based on policies and practices related to the attraction and retention of top performers, as well as data collected from employee surveys.

A set of core values—Family, Customers, Quality, Integrity, and Teamwork—guide Vitamix employees and executives. These values are supported by dedicated leadership, openness to change, and a commitment to personal growth.

Benefits like healthy eating and fitness programs, tuition reimbursement, employee appreciation and development programs, plus a free blender for all associates upon hiring, are proof of the company’s commitment to ensuring its purpose and core values are realized among employees.
