Bret Keisling is joined again by Jenny Levy, Executive Vice President, People, Community & Environment at Hypertherm, Inc., who discusses women in manufacturing generally and at Hypertherm; how employee owners legacies build upon the company founders' legacy; the Hypertherm HOPE Foundation; and the Recovery Friendly Workplace.
Episode 193 Notes
In 2010, Hypertherm created the HOPE (Hypertherm Owners’ Philanthropic Endeavors) Foundation, which partners with nonprofit organizations and engages in activities that strengthen and create sustainable, positive change in our communities and the environment.
Hypertherm's Community Service Time (CST) program gives each associate (employee owner) around the world 40 hours of paid time per year to volunteer when and where they choose. New hires get the message quickly; the deep commitment to community is demonstrated by spending an afternoon volunteering during all orientation sessions – time not deducted from their available paid service hours.
As a Recovery Friendly Workplace, Hypertherm fosters a safe and recovery friendly environment and engages associates in addiction and behavioral health prevention.
