Here's what our employees have to say about employee ownership at Vita Plus.
Bev Friemoth, Customer Service, 13 years
"Working for Vita Plus to me is about being part of a team. It is not an 'I' environment. For me it is like being part of a unit where everyone's opinion counts and what you do matters no matter who you are. Being part of an employee-owned company makes me take pride in what we do and try harder to help our customers and our company succeed."
Tony Newton, Lake Mills Facility General Manager, 12 years
"One of the biggest reasons I enjoy working for Vita Plus is because we are flat organization and everyone is working towards a common goal. Serve customers, make money and have fun is our motto from top to bottom. Employee ownership gives us the opportunity to reap the benefits from our labor."
Andy Carlson, Dairy Nutritionist, 6 years
"Vita Plus has a culture that matches up with my own belief system. We are a company that cares about the success of our customers. It is a humbling experience to be a part of an organization that has so many talented people working throughout the organization. Our company approaches each challenge with the attitude that we will meet the challenge even if it means doing things differently."
Greg Carl, Transportation Coordinator, 6 years
"Vita Plus is a stable, rapidly growing company that will be here for the long haul. You wake up in the morning and actually look forward to coming to work. Employee ownership gets you thinking of ways to be more productive and efficient to help contribute to the ESOP. In doing so, as owners, we see the return. Employee ownership promotes teamwork, ethics and a great culture within the company."
Linda Pearson, Marketing & Event Planning Associate, 16 years
"Employee ownership means not only that you share in the profits but everyone looks at things differently. You don't spend money foolishly because it is coming out of YOUR pocket. Therefore you get to work with people that are passionate about their jobs and Vita Plus. We are also a company with Values. Yes, we are here to make money but we do so in an honest and professional manner. The best part of Vita Plus is the people."
Becky Pertzborn, Employee Services Manager, 21 years
"There are many great things about Vita Plus, but simply stated – it's the People. You are going to work with such great people. With similar mind sets we all are going to work hard, ensure our customers' success, and enjoy the ride of learning, growing, shaping and building our company, and winning along the way."
Matt Wood, Sales Manager, 18 years
"Here at Vita Plus, employee ownership means that I have a direct impact on what happens in this business every day. It means that, through my thoughts and actions, I have the ability to positively impact the future of this company."
