Why It's a Great Employer

A producer of kid's wagons and tricycles, Radio Flyer communicates the importance of "having fun while working hard" through monthly celebrations, customer service awards and flexible scheduling. Employees are rewarded for abiding by the company's values, which include mantras such as "Integrity in all that we do" and "Passion for Excellence." The CEO -- known at Radio Flyer as the Chief Wagon Officer -- actively participates in hiring and onboarding programs, and discusses company culture and values over breakfast with new employees. All new "Flyers" go through a 12-month orientation process, starting with a miniature "welcome wagon" replica of the company's bestselling toy.
