The Johnsonville Way is what makes Johnsonville the very special (and successful) company it is. To help you understand, we wrote a brief story booklet about The Johnsonville Way and how it came to be, based on an interview with Johnsonville Owner and Chairman Ralph C. Stayer. Explore below to learn more. Find out whether The Johnsonville Way is a good fit for your ideals, your values … the way you’d like to work and make a difference in the world.
Showing genuine concern, compassion and empathy for others through words and actions; at times going out of your way or your comfort zone to do so.
Having such a strong personal commitment to customer success, to keeping your promises, and to taking responsibility for your actions, that you will do what is needed, easy or not.
An action that shows you have noticed or recognized the contribution of another person or team.
Being open to your shortcomings, not feeling or acting superior, and seeing others as your teachers—no matter what their role.
To show consideration for someone else as a person and to treat him or her as you would want to be treated, at all times.
Developing new or improved products, services, processes and ideas that make us even more valuable to our customers.
Knowing that we have each other’s support and best interests at heart, in everything we say and do; being able to count on each other, always.
Members and leaders share what The Johnsonville Way means to them. Our culture is what sets us apart and makes Johnsonville a top workplace.
The Johnsonville Way is about people – not just the people of our company, but also the people of our communities. Johnsonville Members are eager to help others, to unlock potential, to make this a better world...and to have fun doing it! Look at the great things our Johnsonville Members do!
When Johnsonville’s Young Professionals Group organized a school supply drive on our Sheboygan campus, generous Members donated 930 items to local school districts to ensure that children would have the essential supplies needed to start off the school year right.
When our Watertown facility was destroyed by a fire, it took a year to rebuild – but the Members who worked there weren’t idle during that time. They spent more than 10,000 hours working in the community (while Johnsonville paid them) like these Member volunteers at Rock River Rescue Foundation.
Johnsonville Members built two homes in Sheboygan while volunteering with Habitat for Humanity - Lakeside. Johnsonville’s We Work As a Team, We Give As a Team program gives Members paid Service Time Off to make a difference in the community.
