Perks and Programs

We asked Liberty Hardware Manufacturing Corporation to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Summer Flextime: Summer Flextime is an optional program that provides employees with additional flexibility during the summer months. Employees have the ability to work expanded hours Monday-Thursday and an abbreviated schedule on Fridays (8am-12pm). Employees can participate some weeks and not others based on their workload and personal scheduling.
  • Casual Dress: The company allows casual dress in the office Monday-Friday, including jeans! Employees are also able to wear their summer sandals and flip flops during the summer months. This benefit helps to create a comfortable work environment for our employees.
  • Company Holiday Party: Holiday party for employee and a guest where they can celebrate the holidays with a formal dinner, dancing, photos; and they can win prizes
  • Food Trucks: The company schedules on-site food trucks once per week during most of the year (and once month during colder months). This provides employees with additional affordable, fun lunch options while at work.
  • Employee Appreciation Celebration: The company designates a day each year to thank our employees for all they do! Our 2017 Employee Appreciation Celebration will include a meal and company gift.
  • Community Service Opportunities: The company has a rotating group of employees who participate to be members of the Community Service Committee each year. This committee creates a schedule of community service initiatives for the year. The company allows employees throughout the company to participate in these community service initiatives with pay. The 2015 community service initiatives included drives for SPCA and Second Harvest Food Bank, Special Olympics, American Red Cross Blood Drive, and donating holiday gifts and clothing to 50 children in need at the holidays.
  • Farmer's Market: During the summer months, we have an onsite farmer's market. This provides employees with a convenient and affordable way to get fresh, local, healthy foods.
  • Biggest Loser Competition: Liberty Hardware borrows the concept of the TV show Biggest Loser to bring a fun, supportive way to lose weight. Employees can participate in teams, are weighed as a group weekly and the winners (largest % of weight lost) get prizes including a free day off!
