Caring For Our Employees And Communities
Our commitment to ESG and sustainability includes building a culture that ensures the health and safety of our employees while valuing their growth, development, and engagement. We are committed to advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in our workforce and positively impacting the communities where we live and work. We strive to foster an inclusive and collaborative work environment for our team members and provide opportunities for employees to advance their knowledge and skills through talent development programs, including Douglas Dynamics University.
We believe in providing a healthy and safe work environment for all team members. We also believe diversity and inclusion drives creativity and innovation, which is why we’re dedicated to creating a workforce that represents the communities we serve while utilizing our resources to the betterment of the communities where our team members live.
Our employees’ experience throughout Douglas Dynamics is of the utmost importance. We know it is critical that we take an employee-centric view of what people do, see, hear, and feel about their work. When we create positive experiences in those four areas, we increase employee engagement. To ensure we clearly understand our employees’ engagement, we initiate Pulse Surveys throughout the year and use the data collected to maintain or improve the employee experience.
benefits & compensation
At Douglas Dynamics, providing a collaborative workplace and great benefits to our team members demonstrates our appreciation for their work and inspires the creative thinking that continues to drive our success after so many years. We believe it is essential to provide competitive and equitable compensation programs, medical plans, and supplemental benefits to help support our employees and their families health and wellness.
Douglas Dynamics seeks to establish competitive compensation programs that enable us to attract and retain skillful, experienced, and dedicated executive officers and motivate management to maximize performance while building stockholder value.
diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging
Douglas Dynamics is committed to fostering and promoting an inclusive and diverse work environment through our equal-opportunity hiring practices, employment policies, and the development of diverse talent. A culture of inclusion in which all employees feel they belong and can do their best work helps drive our Winning Behaviors.
We launched the DD CONNECT initiative in 2021 to support our employees and their families’ well-being not only inside the workplace but also in their homes and communities. These initiatives include financial programs, cybersecurity training sessions, and the GEDWorks program. We also support socially responsible causes that are important to our employees, their family, and members of our local communities.
Douglas Dynamics is committed to utilizing our resources to make a positive impact on the communities where our team members live and work. We provide support to our local communities both financially and through employee volunteering opportunities. We are proud of the volunteer efforts of our employees who dedicate their time and resources to help organizations and causes in our local communities.
