Community Involvement: STIHL Inc. supports the local workforce by partnering with local high schools and educational centers. They also offer an apprentice program that is not only Virginia Commonwealth certified, but is the first program in Virginia to receive international recognition through the German Chamber of Commerce IHK designation. The apprentice program trains our employees and other regional companies in several skilled trade areas.

In addition to industry support and education, STIHL Inc. also supports local communities throughout the U.S. with its support of Independent We Stand, which is all about independently owned businesses across the country reaching out and educating the community about the many benefits of “buying local.”

Through STIHL Inc. leadership with the National Association of Landscape Professionals (previously known as PLANET), the premier national association representing professionals in the green industry, the company impacts both the Virginia Beach community and the nation. STIHL Inc. supports the National Collegiate Landscape Competition for college students, and other events like Green Industry Conference and Renewal and Remembrance, in which the company is part of landscaping rejuvenation at Arlington National Cemetery.

STIHL Inc. employees have also taken a leadership role in beautifying the city of Virginia Beach. Through PLANET Day of Service, employees from STIHL Inc. and other local companies have volunteered more than 1,850 hours and saved the City of Virginia Beach more than $68,000 in tree work and landscaping since their engagement.

Development and retention of employees is therefore a key element in the drive for competitive advantage and sustained profitability and growth.

In 2014 STIHL Inc. was awarded both the Assembly Plant of the Year Award and Processor of the Year award for their superior achievements in production and operations and in May of 2015, STIHL Inc. produced its 60 millionth unit. These milestones and accolades are a result of the company’s engaged, quality-focused workforce. The efforts of these skilled and passionate employees led the company to its number one selling brand* status and record sales year over year.

HR Supervisor, Pamela Michaels, shares that 2015 marks the highest number of Service Award honorees in STIHL’s history, with over 400 employees reaching employment milestones; in 2016 that number will be even higher. At every five years of service, STIHL recognizes employees in various ways for their continued employment with the company. When employees reach 10 years of service, they are recognized with a lunch at a local restaurant, hosted by the president of the company. In 2015, three employees were honored for 40 years of service. “Many employees express gratitude for having such a strong company to call “home” for so many years,” says Michaels.

STIHL’s commitment to employees is evident in everything from competitive pay and top-notch benefits (including health and dental insurance, tuition reimbursement, a pension plan, company-matched 401(k), paid time off, and sick leave) to the innovative STIHL Health and Wellness Center, a preventative and urgent care-type of facility that’s open to employees and family members. In fact, STIHL’s benefits are some of the best in the industry.

STIHL Inc. is growing and it continues to invest in their workforce, the local community and the U.S.- based operation to support that growth.
