    The 401K and salary freezes should be eliminated

    Retain the strong communications and company commitments to communities. Reinstate retirement plan matching and compensation rewards for high performance employees.

    Pros

    Family of companies that in my experience works well together. There are good benefits, the company supports family life, good products, great colleagues.

    Cons

    Schawk tries to be a good company to work for, but they lost some ground in the down economy. Although I support the idea of cuts to ensure the sustainability of the company, the messages of the cuts was very poorly delivered. Cuts to salary (5%), cuts to benefits (401K) & worst of all cuts to education. Cutting education was for me the most difficult. I believe you get 10x benefit vs. cost when you send employees to training. Cutting this, along with the financial cuts, was really demoralizing.

    Note: this has been turning around with small raises, and additional financial benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the professionalism on your messages, and on your employees. In a few years the pendulum will swing back to it being a sellers market, you want to do every thing you can to keep the great staff you have. You should also have a very strong succession plan in place, I believe this is going to be key for long term success.
