At Zep Inc., we recognize that corporate culture has as much impact on a company’s performance as its business strategy. We strive to deliver more than just financial results – we want to be a highly desirable place to work for all of our associates, and to continuously contribute to the improvement of our industry and to the communities in which we operate.
All associates — regardless of title or rank — are expected to take ownership in the company’s performance. We recognize that some of the most transformational ideas and solutions come from people on the front lines, which is why we truly value every team member. An associate’s ability to rise to any occasion is nurtured and rewarded at Zep Inc.
The concept of “teamwork” is pervasive across all areas of the company because we recognize the value of working together effectively and efficiently – under good circumstances and during times of adversity – to meet and exceed customer expectations. We give our people the resources to win, and we reward them for doing so.
“When you think about winning in today’s marketplace, we have the same plants, the same assets, and access to the same raw materials as our competitors. Our people are absolutely our competitive advantage — not only their specific skill sets, but in how they work together.”
-Bob Collins, Chief Administrative Officer
