Why It's a Great Employer

Employees at this sand mining operation feel so much like family that the company has established a group, called the Golden Badger Society, of retired "associates" who've served 25 years or more. Badger Mining provides associates with opportunities to grow and develop by participating on cross-functional teams that make important decisions such as safety practices, retirement plans and wellness programs. With unlimited time off, unlimited tuition reimbursement, scholarships for family members, 100 percent paid health-care benefits, a 401(k) program, quarterly profit sharing and a day off for opening day of deer-hunting season -- plus double pay for those who stay behind to work that day -- Badger Mining's turnover rate has stayed at about 2 percent for several years.
