We work hard but believe we’ve had great success because we also have fun together.

One of our most popular initiatives is It’s Your Time Summer Hours program that allows employees to leave as early as 1 p.m. on Fridays during the summer season. It begins the Friday before Memorial Day and continues through the Friday before Labor Day.

Our Partners in Time volunteer program has been recognized nationally, receiving the Points of Light/Hands On Network “Award for Excellence in Workplace Volunteerism.” This is a grass roots program that allows employees to decide where to apply their time and energy in giving back to the community.
