Team member value proposition
A comprehensive support system that helps you get the most out of your career – that's Pella's commitment to every team member.

Our people-focused culture drives everything we do.

Pella's values are the foundation of everything we do.  As we embody them, we are inspired to reach out and give our very best.  As a family-owned company since 1925, Pella's culture is largely based on our solid-successful foundation and core values.

A team-first approach
At Pella, our teamwork, diversity and open two-way communication ensure that everyone's ideas and suggestions are heard, and that each person feels respected and valued.  For example, we hold regular company-wide meetings on our State of the Business.  Pella also has a strong history of sharing the rewards of our success with all team members: our profit-sharing program is just one way we do that.

A dedication to our customers
Most important, we measure our company's success by how well we satisfy our customers.  That's one of the reasons we are so passionate about continuous improvement.  Each team member at Pella Corporation is always encouraged to think about ways our processes and our products can be better.  And we continuously hold structured events that help move these thoughts into action.

Pella, Iowa, honored by the Institute for Character Development
Congratulations to team members and others whose good work resulted in Pella being named Iowa's Community of Character for 2013.  Criteria for the award included developing an active task force and a comprehensive, sustained community-wide initiative to support good character while integrating character development throughout the community.

Character Counts! in Iowa began as a sesquicentennial project in 1996, thanks in part to support by the Pella Rolscreen Foundation.  In 2002, the Foundation introduced the pillar-based program in Pella and through the years has provided funding for other corporate locations to offer it locally.  The program is making a positive difference in the workplace as well as in schools and communities.

To learn more about the Character Counts! initiative in Pella, check out the Fox 17 website dedicated to promoting Character Counts! in Iowa.  It features a video about Pella's history with Character Counts! from the perspective of many Pella community members.
