At FPI we are constantly focused on improvement...making things better...increasing value...and, we know that two people working together may be more effective at solving a problem than one. FPI encourages teamwork and you will have opportunities to join challenging and rewarding committees that give you a chance to step-up and get involved in brainstorming, researching, reporting and implementing initiatives.
Here are a few examples!
Diversity is at the heart of our company – team members with different backgrounds, points of view, experiences and perspectives, all working together toward the same goals. Having a diverse, multifaceted team lets us unleash the best thinking on our business – and deliver the best results. Our Diversity Council is proof-positive that inclusion is a way of life at FPI. Dedicated to helping FPI employees recognize the unique talents and perspectives each person brings to the table, council members help to reinforce our commitment to being an inclusive organization, in which all employees are treated with respect, recognized for performance and valued for individual differences.
FPI aims to go above and beyond to demonstrate our commitment to creating and maintaining an environment where everyone is inspired to achieve their personal best. We believe diversity leads to better products, a stronger business and a better workplace for employees.
The mission of the Healthy Lifestyles committee is to help the FPI community enjoy an improved quality of life by raising awareness about health issues and inspiring healthy lifestyle changes that will result in a balanced mind, body and spirit. We focus on several aspects that influence our physical and emotional well-being including general health topics, nutrition, fitness and community events as these all play an important role in balancing the body.
Good health is a long term objective, the everyday decisions we make are the things that most influence our health and well-being. By providing consistent support, our team hopes to inspire others to make better decisions and to do what is right for our bodies on a daily basis.
Operation Y, primarily geared towards those new to the workforce, strives to build a strong community within FPI, while bridging the generational gap. 'Op Y' focuses on developing team-building skills by organizing and coordinating events, working with the community outside of FPI to nurture a cooperative environment, and internal cross-training to increase our breadth of knowledge. Some of Operation Y's events include: Summer Kick-Off Party, Generation Y/Executive Team Wine & Cheese Night, and volunteering at the Springfield Emergency Food Pantry.
There are a number of important reasons to 'Go Green' and here at FPI we have taken on the green challenge by forming the FPI GREEN Team. The GREEN Team has introduced company-wide initiatives to substantially reduce our use of paper, begun several recycling programs and organized a car pool program saving employees over 14,000 miles in only a six month period! They may be small steps, but their motto says it all ... “together we can do more.”
Quality Awards Program
As a company, we strive to infuse in every employee the desire and dedication to continuously improve all aspects of our organization. We want to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations the first time, every time.
We achieve this by encouraging all employees to perform their duties to the best of their ability and by providing them with the necessary support to produce a quality product or service.
To encourage this goal, the Quality Committee rewards FPI employees who go above and beyond the normal scope of their jobs. Award winners are customer-driven, out-of-the-box thinkers, who strive for continuous innovation and improvement and frequently step up and take ownership ... leading FPI to the top!
Committee for Recreation and Participation
The key to all great organizations are its people. The Committee for Recreation and Participation is our way to celebrate our people and create a community spirit. Activities include the Annual Employee Appreciation event, Take our Children to Work day, Holiday and Birthday celebrations, and charitable fund raisers strengthen the team spirit that is part of FPI.
