Joining the Benjamin Obdyke team feels like having a second family. Our culture promotes communication, teamwork, employee development and a professional, yet casual atmosphere. We encourage open communication between employees and managers and across departments. Quarterly corporate communication meetings focus on sharing information regarding company progress and financial information. These meetings, along with cross-departmental teams, support corporate initiatives and foster collaboration.
Our employees are our greatest asset. We follow a Balanced Scorecard (BSC) approach to achieve our corporate objectives. Employees are involved in this process through the design of their individual goals. In addition, Benjamin Obdyke supports its employees as they create their Individual Development Plans (IDP) — a professional development program that strengthens employees’ knowledge, skills and abilities.
It is impossible to convey the warmth and camaraderie that exists in our everyday world at Benjamin Obdyke. From celebrating employee milestones, rewarding co-workers through our SMILE program, and celebrating our annual Employee Appreciation Day, to our everyday work relationships and casual Fridays, Benjamin Obdyke consistently appreciates and rewards employee achievements.
Giving back to the greater community is part of our culture. Ongoing support for a broad range of causes includes offering financial donations to a variety of charities, providing mentoring for students and financial support to Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week, and shopping for gifts at holiday time for local children’s charities.
Our employees are most deeply committed to participating in Homes of Hope where we build homes for homeless families in Baja, Mexico. Across Mexico, the Homes of Hope program and neighboring charitable entities have provided more than 2,000 families with homes. Benjamin Obdyke Incorporated supports the Homes of Hope program in its efforts to make a difference - one family at a time.
