Our open door policy means associates are welcome to drop by, or request an appointment with co-workers, managers, supervisors or executives at any time. Open communication is the foundation for an excellent work environment and a successful business team.
Quarterly Town Hall meetings keep associates informed of what is going on in every department of the company. During this meeting, updates on business goals and major initiatives are reviewed. At the end of every Town Hall, associates are encouraged to ask questions and engage executives in discussions about the company.
Discussions with the CEO are small, informal meetings with Avendra’s President and CEO, Wolfram Schaefer. Throughout the year, associates are invited to these meetings to discuss company activities, ask questions and learn more about the state of the industry.
Our unique Rewards & Recognition Program encourages associates to nominate co-workers for rewards based on exceptional performance or assisting with work above and beyond the call of duty. Rewards consist of a certificate and check or gift certificate. This is a great way for associates to recognize and reward one another for a job well done.
Avendra’s Innovation Committee asks associates to submit their ideas, suggestions and projects for review by a cross-functional team of Avendra executives. Many innovative ideas are encouraged and receive additional support, while others that have already been implemented receive recognition and the person who submitted the idea receives a monetary award.
We encourage associates to take part in charity events and community initiatives throughout the year. Our associates support as many as 30 charitable organizations each year through a variety of activities from volunteering time and expertise to raising funds.
Our Employee Referral Program encourages associates to refer qualified candidates for open positions. If that person is hired, the associate who referred them receives $1,000.
Being environmental responsible is an important part of our culture. We try to minimize the impact our business has on the environment by putting policies in place to help reduce waste and curb negative environmental effects.
