EXCEPTIONAL WORKPLACE Creating an inspiring and rewarding workplace is fundamental to Fairmount Santrol’s talent recruitment and retention strategy. We provide our family members with compensation that is competitive in relevant markets and offer benefits to full-time family members that include a medical and dental benefits package, 401(k) plan, a wellness incentive program, and safety bonus programs. With a full-time and part-time employee retention rate of 87%, compared to the 76% average for the manufacturing industry and the 69% average for the mining industry, we believe our efforts are inspiring a more progressive, inclusive, and innovative culture. Another important part of an exceptional and inspiring workplace involves recognizing people for a job well done. Fairmount Santrol’s awards and recognition program encourages Fairmount Santrol family members to nominate those individuals who they believe exceed expectations in all facets of their work. Open nominations are accepted on a rolling basis and an external committee identifies finalists for the annual Fairmount Santrol Sustainable Development Employee of the Year award.
