Good benefits are good business

Good benefits are good business - Ameritas employee benefitsWhen you walk into the Diamond Pet Foods headquarters plant in rural Missouri, you may not know it is as well known in business circles for its employee benefits philosophy as it is among animal lovers for the quality of its products.

Taking good care of workers is nothing new at Diamond Pet Foods, which has been owned by the same families since it was founded in 1970. The company employs more than 700 people at five facilities in four states – Missouri, California, South Carolina and Arkansas.

“Diamond Pet Foods takes care of its people because it’s the right thing to do, but that approach is also smart business,” explained Andrew Brondel, corporate director of administration. “We know that employees who aren’t worried about paying for health care can focus on improving processes and growing our business. A healthy team is a more productive team. We also know loyalty and dedication work both ways.”

“The company’s owners have always insisted our employees and their families share the same benefits they themselves enjoy,” said Dru Haines, human resources manager. “Adding supplemental benefits like dental and vision care have contributed to our success at attracting and retaining talented workers at each location. That kind of happy ending is exactly why we invest in high-quality benefits from Ameritas … because everybody wins.”

Ameritas is proud to be in the business of fulfilling life.
