The concept of “taking care of our people” stems from the family values on which we built our business.
We now have more than 5,000 employees in over 80 facilities across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and China. Each one of them is important to us. We strive to provide them with a safe and comfortable work environment that meets their needs while maximizing efficiency.
We also take pride in giving back to the communities in which we do business.
Top 100 Workplace
Our reputation as a rewarding, responsible place to work continues to be a strong asset. For three consecutive years—2014, 2015, 2016—ORBIS’ headquarters in Oconomowoc, Wis., was named one of the Top 100 Workplaces in southeast Wisconsin by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. ORBIS also received an ‘Ethics’ award in 2015 for operating with strong values.
One of America’s Healthiest Workplaces
Our Wellness Program and initiatives focused on employee health reflect our commitment to support a safe, healthy lifestyle, and led to the recent honor of being named one of America’s Healthiest Workplaces by The Wellness Council of America.
Sharing the Good
We encourage employees to use their skills in volunteer opportunities that benefit community organizations and causes. Many Menasha Corporation facilities participate in food drives, fundraising walks, and medical and clothing initiatives for national emergencies or disasters, and we often collaborate with our customers, combining efforts for the greater community good.
Donation of Corrugated Trash Receptacles for Community Events
We’ve proudly donated more than 23,000 corrugated trash and recycling containers to charitable, nonprofit and fundraising events in communities across northeastern Wisconsin. These durable, wax-coated receptacles are themselves made of recycled material and carry the message “Keeping Our Planet Clean” to remind citizens of their social responsibility.
See It? Snag It!
Safety Snags, our employee-led safety program, keeps employees on their toes by spotting and reporting potentially unsafe conditions in our work environment.
Dollars for Doers, College Scholarships and Matching Gifts
Through a variety of benevolent programs, we support worthwhile organizations and volunteer opportunities important to our employees. Visit our Foundation page for more information about these programs.
Menasha Corporation Foundation
Menasha Corporation has been a passionate supporter of worthy community projects and organizations for more than a century. Founder Elisha D. Smith’s philanthropic efforts helped less fortunate families and educational institutions far beyond the company’s hometown of Menasha, WI.
In 1953, Menasha’s ongoing corporate philanthropy led to the establishment of the Menasha Corporation Foundation. The corporation serves as the primary source of funding. One of our five focus areas is environmental concerns.
Each year, our employees volunteer to help build a home through Habitat for Humanity for the Fox Cities. The Foundation has been supporting Habitat for Humanity of the Fox Cities for more than a decade. By volunteering with Habitat, our employees are demonstrating their commitment to live the corporation’s values and fulfill its mission, make a difference in our community and improve the lives of others by helping provide a safe and affordable home to a deserving family.
ORBIS Corporation’s employees have formed Community Action Teams at its facilities to help make a positive difference in the health and welfare of the communities in which the employees live and work. Each year, ORBIS allocates funds to support non-profit groups, agencies and causes in communities that are in need of financial support, volunteers or donated goods.
