Sustainability: Our People

Number one resource
The Briess family tradition of helping our customers succeed through quality and innovation is carried on every day by our number one resource—our people. To help our people succeed, we promote a family culture that motivates, inspires and encourages staff to help them realize their full potential professional and personally. The benefits of well trained, forward-thinking innovators and problems-solvers extends beyond the workday, impacting the health and well-being of families and communities.

To help our employees succeed and love what they’re doing, we have identified these critical areas of focus:

  • Provide a safe environment
  • Nurture a company-wide attitude of respect, honesty, positive attitude and integrity
  • Strive for quality in everything we do

Ongoing staff development includes classes and programs to help improve job performance, increase efficiency and develop problem-solving skills. At any one time, multiple staff are participating in trade and college-level coursework toward certificates and degrees. Reimbursement for satisfactorily completing classes is available. And active memberships in trade-related organizations is encouraged.

Most recently, several apprenticeship programs with the Chilton High School were initiated in the Quality and Maintenance departments.
