What makes an employee happy with their job? Studies have shown factors that influence job satisfaction include appreciation for your work, good relationships with colleagues, a good work-life balance, job security, and company values. A company that can provide all those factors seems to be the exception, not the norm. And job seekers clamor for positions at companies that do.
Thompson Creek operates with a list of core values and a mission to make every customer House Proud. Our employees are a close-knit group of people as passionate about making an impact on our customers as they are about reaching and exceeding their career goals.
Our employees recognize management's commitment to an atmosphere of engagement and care, and our customers recognize our commitment to the highest level of client satisfaction. And when you're a respected authority in your field, people turn to you for advice.
Case in point: Congressman Anthony G. Brown, of Maryland's Fourth Congressional District, recently asked Thompson Creek for assistance. He asked Thompson Creek to host a Manufacturing Roundtable discussion on issues challenging U.S. manufacturing companies and the successes manufacturers experience in today’s economy.
Congressman Brown isn't the only distinguished political leader to turn to Thompson Creek for their expertise. Other notable VIPs include visits from President Barack Obama in 2011, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin in 2014, Governor Larry Hogan in 2015, Maryland Speaker of the House Mike Busch in 2015, Maryland President of the Senate Mike Miller in 2015, and Prince George's County executive Rushern Baker in 2014.
So Thompson Creek is an expert in their field that people turn to for help and advice. We're a company that's totally committed to customer satisfaction. And we truly care about our employees. Our core values of Integrity, Accountability, Teamwork, and Excellence drive us in everything we do.
We design, manufacture, and sell every window here at our local factory in Upper Marlboro. Because of that, we're dedicated to every step of the process. Employees take pride in our company, and they excel through ongoing training and growth opportunities.
And while we work hard, we also play hard. We hold company-wide events like our annual FishAPalooza, a fishing tournament culminating with a seafood feast and awards ceremony. We regularly have happy hours, midnight bowling, and team bonding events, and celebrate every December with a huge holiday party.
We also help those who are less fortunate. We participate in fundraising events like the Ronald McDonald Red Shoe Shuffle 5K, Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity Team Build Projects, Fish For A Cure, and the Arc of Prince George's County.
