Our Ways of Working

We have team members located across the United States spanning multiple time zones, both in office and remote. This means we put in extra effort to make sure we connect and collaborate in ways that make sense for us. We expect the Senior HR Generalist to be onsite at our Columbus Ohio facility at least 4 days a week. 

We know that personal connection is the foundation for the great work we do together. In order to build those relationships with team members in other cities, we meet with coworkers in person two times a year at a full company offsite and a departmental offsite. These offsites are expected of employees and are great opportunities to meet the people you work with every day and to do some of the work that is much more difficult to do virtually.
