Our Values

What makes us different? Our 12 core culture characteristics (CCs) unify our collaborative team of innovative problem solvers. They guide how we treat each other. They inspire us to be better people and create positive ripples of influence for lasting impact.

As a team, we are committed to Unvarnished Communication, Executing the Fundamentals, Planning & Preparation, Finding Your Sweet Spot, Taking Risks, Trusting Relationships, Innovation, Rejuvenation, Just Do It, Two Extra Things, High Expectations, and Stewardship.

Once a month, we review a culture characteristic as a full team to inspire, refresh, and hold each other accountable.

“I chose a career in engineering because I wanted to solve meaningful problems that help other people. The entire team shares this vision and works together to make a positive difference at our customers and in the community.”

Benefits

Flexible Schedule and Remote Options

We understand how our projects and workflows do not fit into a fixed schedule every week. That’s why we do not have a firm start or end time for each workday.

We expect our team members to do what it takes to get the job done. Some work offsite at customer locations, while others work from our Zeeland, Michigan office or remotely from their home.

Team members are encouraged to work from where they are most productive for our customers and our team.

Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)

When you are hired as a full-time employee, you immediately become an owner of DISHER! Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) provides a unique retirement benefit in addition to our 401k program.

Vacations, Holidays, and Parental Leave

Rejuvenation is a big deal here. Along with 11-paid holidays, full-time team members are encouraged to take a minimum of two to three weeks of vacation a year. For parental leave, we provide two weeks off after the birth or adoption of a child to help with adjustments and transitions.

Community Service and Professional Development

DISHER gives each employee up to 20-hours of paid stewardship time (community work), 80-hours of professional development time, and additional paid time off for service trips and charitable work.

Insurance, Health, and Wellness

DISHER offers excellent health, dental, and vision insurance along with mental health resources.

Team Bonding and Activities

Team bonding looks like all-team Friday lunches, two companywide offsites, a Christmas party, a summer picnic, and a variety of group sponsorships (running, biking, soccer, hockey, and golf to name a few).

Other fun traditions have included a March Madness ping-pong tournament, Turkey Bowl flag-football game, chili cook offs, and walks to Captain Sundae. However, the real benefit of working at DISHER are the intangibles. It’s about becoming part of an incredible team of people who care about you both inside and outside of the office.
