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.
Vitamix was a first-time applicant and thus a first-time NorthCoast 99 honoree.
Since 1921, Vitamix has been passionate about improving the lives of its customers and employees. This passion drives the company to create innovative, award-winning blending technology for both home chefs and foodservice professionals around the world.
“Vitamix, as an organization, exists to nourish individuals’ zest for life,” said Dr. Jodi Berg, president and CEO, Vitamix. “Having this clearly identified purpose guides the company’s culture and gives our work greater meaning.”
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.
Vitamix and other NorthCoast 99 honorees will be recognized at the 20th annual NorthCoast 99 Awards Event on September 18 and in the September issue of Cleveland Magazine.
