KDM Breakfast with Santa

KDM annual Breakfast with Santa event for Employees and their families

Each year, Cincy Magazine’s MANNY Awards recognize the manufacturing industry’s greatest accomplishments by honoring local companies for their innovation and best practices. Winners of this prestigious award exemplify outstanding accomplishments that cover: product innovation, e-business, supply-chain management, employee safety, systems/process innovation, global business, technology transfer and quality control.  KDM POP Solutions Group has been selected as a 2019 Winner of a MANNY Award for “Best Place to Work”.

Some of the considerations for the award recipients in this category include the company’s engagement with its employees, the employee benefits’ structure, and the company’s employee-relations policy and its impact upon the local community.

KDM’s employee engagement programs include:

  • The Dream Makers Program helps employees achieve their personal dreams and goals and allow them to work with a Life Coach during company time.
  • The Wellness Program encompasses a variety of presentation topics during the workday, health and wellness competitions and yearlong healthy lifestyle incentives for employees
  • The Service Committee provides opportunities for employees to volunteer and get involved in charitable causes with a minimum of one event per quarter
  • Bill and Marylou Kissel College Scholarship Program. KDM employees and the children of employees are eligible to receive funds to help pay for college upon selection.

These programs and more have played a strong role in the culture of the company. Employees have met weight loss goals, purchased new homes, gone back to school, and quit smoking.

The official Manny Awards Ceremony will take place the evening of June 13 in Cincinnati. Bob Kissel, President/CEO, will be receiving the award on behalf of KDM.

Congratulations to all the Manny Awards Class of 2019!
