Employee Health & Safety
For safety, our goal is to make sure everyone goes home in the same shape as when they came to work. We make safety our top priority and work toward achieving zero employee injuries and zero vehicular accidents with four guiding principles:
- Working safely is a condition of employment.
- Everyone is responsible for preventing accidents and injuries.
- All accidents and injuries can be prevented
- Employees have the right to stop unsafe work.
To complement the company’s focus on safety, an important part of the culture at Schwan’s Company is ensuring employees are fully engaged in their health and wellness. We have long-standing strategies designed to benefit the physical health of employees as well as their emotional, financial and social well-being.
Our team members have access to employee assistance services, online tools that help track physical activity, free health assessments, health screenings and flu shots, health-coaching programs and rewards for achieving healthy behaviors.
In 2021, we expanded our health-and-wellness services through two programs new to Schwan’s: Cleo and Livongo. Cleo is a parenting support system which provides pre- and post-pregnancy education and resources. Livongo is a program that includes tools, resources and coaching to help employee manage diabetes.
