When a fire destroyed our facility in Watertown, Wisconsin, it left 120 Johnsonville Members with no regular workplace. Johnsonville came up with a plan: until the Watertown plant was rebuilt, the company would pay these Members. It was the right thing to do. During the down time, members completed 10,000 hours of community service and completed educational coursework. Everyone benefited – Johnsonville, Members and the surrounding community. It was a great example of Johnsonville’s culture in action –taking care of people and communities.
