FONTANA, CA – On August 06, 2012, Employees of Vista Metals Corp. came together to plant seeds in their new employee community garden. This is one of seven YOU FIRST program areas at Vista Metals Corp., the world’s largest independent producer of specialty aluminum products.
Created by the company’s own Momentum Group, YOU FIRST is an internal program to reward and keep employees first. It consists of seven focus areas designed to show employee recognition, highlight achievements, provide health and fitness education and encourage team building and work.
YOU FIRST Program Areas:
- College Tuition Fund
- Community Garden
- Healthy You
- Co-Employee of the Month (Pay It Forward) “Couldn’t Do It Without YOU First”
- Manager/Lead of the Quarter
- Mentor Program for New Hires
- Help Others Program “Looking Out for YOU First”
“The garden was created to encourage team work and for employees to plant and grow crops for sharing and taking home,” expressed Momentum Group member Joyce Cabalu. “Employees were very anxious to get started and the excitement continues to build as we wait for each gardener’s harvest.”
Each employee is responsible and accountable for their assigned plot. Vista provides irrigation and basic tools. Upon harvesting, employees have a choice to either take home the harvest or share with co-workers. To view pictures of Vista Metals Corp.’s employee community garden visit Community Gardens.
