The inside scoop: “After our 2013 Annual Culture Survey, our team members provided feedback that they wanted a company 401(k) match. Within three months, we listened to our employees and responded with implementing a match. Not only were our employees excited about the match, but they were delighted to see their feedback was heard and acted upon. This has resulted in our employees providing open and honest feedback on other programs and ideas.”
