Engaging Employees Everyday
By engaging employees every day, we work to increase cultural awareness, inspire employee collaboration, and create an inclusive workplace environment. Through regular communication platforms, we ensure employees stay informed on Company performance, programs, and offerings, and have the opportunity to voice feedback and ask questions of our leadership teams.
In March 2020, our Chairman and CEO, Tamara Lundgren began composing a weekly communication to all Schnitzer employees. What started as a way to offer consistent and up-to-date information and ensure a sense of unity amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, has continued on for more than 127 weeks as a meaningful marker of connectivity between our CEO and our employee community.
Quarterly Town Halls
Town Hall meetings are held at each of our facilities, complemented by quarterly all-Company Town Halls featuring our executive leadership team. These regular sessions offer a dedicated space for employees to hear from our leadership and provide direct feedback on workplace experiences, including through online surveys provided at the conclusion of each meeting.
Regular CEO Office Hours
In February 2022, we introduced a communication platform known as CEO Office Hours to facilitate meaningful discussions across the Company. By opening a virtual office door, all employees gained the opportunity to participate in the 10 Office Hours sessions held throughout the 2022 fiscal year. The agenda for each session was entirely driven by employee questions, feedback and interests ranging from workplace culture and recruitment to the Company’s growth strategy and plans for innovation.
