A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Employees – Front-Line Team Members Helping Feed American Families
Released- April 8th, 2020
As part of a ‘critical infrastructure industry’ as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, we take our role in feeding families very seriously. During this unprecedented time, our employees have shown tremendous commitment and dedication. I would like to share my gratitude and personally say THANK YOU to every one of these 780 employees.
At Idahoan, I’ve always said that our employees are what make the difference in our company, this is now more obvious than ever before. As the COVID-19 pandemic impacts every facet of our daily routines, we’ve seen demand for Idahoan products more than double as consumers across the country look for meal solutions in the home. The efforts of our employees are helping feed America when it needs it most.
Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our team, and we’ve taken extraordinary measures and precautions to maintain a safe workplace. I’m also pleased to announce that we have introduced additional benefits and compensation that allow us to show our appreciation for their commitment. This includes expanding time-away benefits and committing $600,000 in additional financial disbursements to our 600 front-line operations and warehouse employees. Payments will be made retroactively back to March 1, 2020.
We are actively seeking 100 additional employees to join the Idahoan team as we anticipate sustained increases in demand for our products. Those interested in applying can learn more at www.idahoan.com/careers. We are offering all new employees the same expanded benefits and compensation provided to current employees.
Once again, I want to extend my deepest thanks to our employees. I would also like to publicly thank the potato growers and suppliers who have continued to provide the necessary materials to operate. We are so proud and humbled to recognize the work that is being accomplished by so many people.
President and CEO, Idahoan Foods
