Additional Culture Details
At Dynamic Dies, employees experience a unique culture where everyone is truly treated as family. The founder and CEO was an 8 year old orphan shipped to the USA for adoption. He learned early the value of family and carries forth those values to this day within the company. Newer employees will say it is a great culture, like they have never experienced at other employers. For us ‘long-timers’, the culture is a way of life/work and we appreciate it!! A great example, when one employee had to decide between badly needed tires for his truck or Christmas for his kids, the ‘family culture’ at DDI stepped up and made sure both happened that year for the employee. During the 2008/2009 recession, many companies were laying off 20-30% of their workforce. Not at DDI! Our employees themselves chose to work together and agreed to all cut their hours/paycheck by 5 hours a week per person so no one would be without a job and no family would be without medical benefits. That just what we do at DDI. We are a not just team . . we treat each other as family. That explains why 25 – 40 years of seniority amongst our employees is not uncommon.
- Take care of our employees and they will take care of our customers
