Treasure Coast Food Bank is Among Best Places to Work in St. Lucie County
Fort Pierce ‒ Treasure Coast Food Bank continues to be one of the best places to work in St. Lucie County, one of just four small employers to be recognized in the 20th Annual Best Places to Work Awards.
Its robust training program for the entire staff of 55 and excellent benefits are among the attributes that make Treasure Coast Food Bank stand out.
The 20th Annual Best Places to Work Awards were given in November by The St. Lucie County Human Resource Association, which recognizes small, medium, large and extra-large employers. Treasure Coast Food Bank has received the award for seven consecutive years.
This year’s recognition was especially meaningful after a challenging year in which Treasure Coast Food Bank’s team, as essential employees, worked straight through the pandemic.
“Many of our employees were working around the clock. To keep everyone safe, we provided safety kits with gloves, facemasks, a shield and sanitizer for daily use at work,” said Judith Cruz, President and CEO of Treasure Coast Food Bank. “We are proud that in a time of uncertainty we were able to provide our employees a safe working environment where they felt comfortable working.”
Several changes that came about because of the pandemic have remained in place, contributing to a better work environment as well.
“We are proud of the culture that we have developed,” Cruz said. “We are proud to offer all employees life, short-term and long-term insurance at no cost to the employees. Even though we work hard to provide essential services to our community, we continue to keep camaraderie and fun activities as a regular part of our operation.”
The recognition program is open to any employer choosing to participate. Each employer is measured on 37 different factors such as growth, turnover, employee development, promotions, insurance and retirement plans.
Treasure Coast Food Bank stands out for its training program, in which all employees participate, and its benefits package. One noteworthy benefit added recently is a tuition reimbursement program.
