Chase Plastic Services Inc., a stocking distributor of more than 6,400 varieties of specialty, engineering and commodity thermoplastics," is celebrating its 30th anniversary on May 4. The Clarkston, Mich.-based company has offered "outrageous service from day one," according to its website.
"Our commitment is inherent in all that we do, whether it's supporting our customers, our community or each other," the company says on its website. "We're proud to have built an award-winning culture so unique and renowned within the industry, it sets the standard."
Chase gathers personal information about different team members and shares it on the monitors throughout the building for an employee spotlight. One team member is highlighted per week.
Employees can take a work break with weekly beer carts; potlucks, including a "spooky potluck" with ghoulish dishes for Halloween; and friendly competitions such as cornhole and Minute to Win It. Chase's culture includes open communication, mentorship, promotions from within where possible and an open-door policy.
Employee charity work includes sponsoring an adopted solider and families during the holidays. It is also involved with Habitat for Clarkston and Lighthouse Services. "If we have someone have to report for active duty, as a company we fundraise money through paid jeans weeks to send our military person care packages," the company said.
Asked what gets you excited to come to work every day, Gustina Sell, human resource manager, said "our team." Sell added that the team is "a great bunch of people to share our common work objectives with and have fun with."
"It is a wonderful feeling to know the positive impact we have on the lives of our team," Sell said. "We want this to be a place they enjoy coming to, a place that can help them achieve their professional and personal goals."
