About Us

Our Culture

Creating a workplace where every team member can grow and thrive is a big deal.

We know that the stronger the culture—the better each team member feels about their purpose at work. This drives a higher sense of belonging and a higher level of performance. It’s the secret sauce to a happy workplace!

living out our values

Building an exceptional team environment

We’re committed to building an exceptional team environment by living out our values. Our intentional rhythms keep our culture united and strong, they include: personal development opportunities, individual coaching, subject matter communities, weekly team lunches, DISHER University training, and full-team offsite meetings.


Because we have an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan), every Core DISHER employee owns a share of the company and has a personal stake in the success of our business. We are passionate about Making a Positive Difference with our customers, coworkers, and communities.

Giving Back

We are inspired to give back to our communities with our time, talent, and financial resources. We put 10% of our profits back into the community and nonprofit organizations, and each year, team members get 20 hours of paid volunteer time to serve our communities.

Team Development

Every Friday we have full-team lunch meetings where we share a meal, learn from each other, review the state of our business, and build relationships. We also set aside two full days a year for company-wide offsites where we meet to strategize and build team camaraderie.

Our Culture Characteristics

DISHER’s 12 culture characteristics inspire our team to work in a unified way toward achieving our goals. Our values provide a framework for how we treat each other and our customers.

Valuing Team Feedback

A Great Place to Work

We believe in continuous improvement. One way we do this is through workplace assessments like the Great Place to Work survey and the Denison Organizational Culture Survey.

We value our team’s unvarnished feedback which allows us to improve, grow, and support each team member. Our surveys show that DISHER employees have a strong sense of mission, trust in managers, employee autonomy, teamwork, and communication.
