While many companies are being greatly affected by the Great Resignation, Imflux has remained stable, thanks to its "highly skilled and sought-after" employee base, said Laura Suter, HR leader.
"We attribute [the stability] to a team that is humble, hungry, smart and committed to changing the way the world molds plastic parts. Our leaders focus on growth, development and tapping into individual passions to drive retention," Suter said. "People come to work at Imflux to be great, and we treat them that way."
Imflux, of Hamilton, Ohio, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Procter & Gamble Co. with injection molding technology that uses low, constant pressure to fill molds and is controlled by software and pressure sensors in the mold and nozzle.
Imflux celebrates different cultures, backgrounds, ages, genders and thinking styles, and all employees go through diversity training. Its equality and inclusion team focuses on education, change and influence "to drive humble conversations" and "provide safe spaces for learning and engagement," Suter said.
On the third Thursday of the month, the team has breakfast and a slide show highlights fun content, such as new-hire biographies, birth announcements, service anniversaries and pictures of events. Activities to relieve stress include chili cook-offs, Halloween costume contests, March Madness, food truck Wednesdays, and sports leagues and outings.
"Imflux is a special place to work. We have some of the brightest minds in the industry," Suter said. "Our employees bring together manufacturing, design, processing, qualification, innovation and software under one roof and have become ambassadors for a new way to mold. … One of our culture giants who was beloved to us said, 'long time coming, best job ever'; each of us tries daily to make Imflux worthy of such a compliment."
