Our 9,800+ employees are part of our extended family. We are committed to their well-being, safety, and professional growth, and our policies and benefits reflect this priority. National Beef® is not just a workplace, but also a place to flourish and succeed.
Our diverse workforce is one of our core strengths, and our culture celebrates and respects our employees' unique backgrounds and experiences.
The safety of our people is our most important tenet. We prioritize our employees’ safety through rigorous safety protocols, comprehensive behavioral-based training programs, and ongoing evaluation and enhancement of our facilities and processes. Daily Safety Walks conducted by management employees at all levels observe and record safety processes being followed by employees in every area of the facility. These daily check-ups create a shared accountability and responsibility to each other.
Our commitment is evident through the implementation of the Safety Training Observation Program (STOP®). Through this program, our managers and supervisors are equipped with the necessary tools to proactively promote safety awareness, identify, and address unsafe behavior, and cultivate a safe workplace environment.
We are proud to attract and keep the industry’s very best employees. Through our comprehensive employee training initiatives, we invest nearly 500,000 hours each year to promote continual professional development. Our diverse range of training programs encompasses new employee orientation, annual retraining, job-specific training, and leadership development, equipping our people with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in their careers.
We provide fulfilling jobs that offer ample opportunities, stable employment, and the potential for promising futures for our employees, and their families. We provide a comprehensive benefits package with competitive wages, health, vision, and dental insurance, retirement savings plans, paid time off, and tuition reimbursement for continued education.
We celebrate our people through recognition programs, service anniversaries, appreciation gifts, and incentives that highlight their personal and team achievements and contributions toward the success of National Beef. Our people not only FEEL valued, they ARE valued.
