At Rogers, our corporate culture is key to our continued success. Our Cultural Behaviors guide our interactions and connect our day-to-day work with our organizational objectives. And by supporting employees’ professional development, providing workplace benefits and highlighting employee achievements, we empower our employees to make innovative decisions and drive results.
Rogers has a long-standing commitment to support employees’ personal development and career growth, with a focus on core competencies, professional skills and leadership potential at all levels. Our established training programs cover a wide range of topics, including project management, tailored leadership development, Six Sigma workshops and more. In addition, the company offers a generous tuition reimbursement program, a mentoring program and job-specific training as needed. In 2020, Rogers Germany supported 12 employees in various educational programs such as industrial electrician training, Six Sigma Black Belt, technical engineering for surface coating and Bachelor of Engineering for industrial engineering and Executive Master of Business Administration. In addition, Rogers offers multiple employment and learning opportunities to students around the globe, including internships and co-ops, as well as New Graduate Development programs in Asia and Germany-based apprenticeships.
Rogers also believes in supporting our employees’ families in their educational endeavors. As part of our corporate educational support program, the company awards scholarships to our employees’ children who meet requirements and have demonstrated strong commitment to their academics and personal developments. In 2020, nine students were awarded the Rogers Corporation Scholarship in the amount of $3,000. Additionally, the Richard C. Berry Scholarship for Science or Engineering and the John P. Foley Award for Academic Excellence, both in amounts of $5,000, were awarded to one student each, respectively.
Our "I am Rogers" campaign has two benefits: It honors our dedicated employees and describes how the products they make are used. These posters are translated into local languages and can be found in all of our global locations.
The health and financial welfare of our workforce is a top priority. Our employees are eligible for many benefits, including, but not limited to:
To help promote the health of our employees and their families globally, we offer an assortment of leading benefit choices and tools including wellness reimbursement programs, medical, dental and vision benefits and additional health care programs. Rogers also provides mental health resources including our Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
The importance of self-care and awareness for our mental health has been amplified by the effects of the coronavirus on our daily lives. We are fortunate that our employee benefits include resources specific to addressing mental health. Our goal is to ensure Rogers employees fully understand their employee assistance benefits, including the extent of benefits available and how to use them. We are committed to the following goals:
To demonstrate our commitment to mental wellness, Rogers has launched our TOGETHER, We Are Connected campaign focused on fostering connectivity and encouraging our employees to share with one another. It provides an opportunity for employees to share well wishes with coworkers and images of happiness and encouragement to create positivity. Since the start of the campaign, we have received over 100 employee submissions of photos and comments on the TOGETHER, We Are Connected page since March 2020.
Rogers offers our global workforce a wide range of employee achievements and awards, with incentives for actions that are consistent with our company goals and values. For example, employees in Belgium are eligible for Collective Labour Agreement No.90 (CLA90) bonuses. Other awards include our Annual Incentive Compensation Bonus Program (AICP), Long-term Stock Incentive Program (LTIP) and Sales Incentive Programs (SIP).
