To Our Team
I think the reason for our success starts with people and it ends with people, says Kenny Goldberg. We treat all of our employees as we do our families: and that is – we’re all in this together. There’s no ‘I’ in this company and in this team. It’s all about ‘we’.
The employees of Gold Metal make it what it represents today: an aggressive, thriving, and prosperous company with the most hard working and dedicated people. Gold Metal currently employs over 400 people company-wide. In Dallas alone, Gold Metal has 200-plus employees, almost half of which live in nearby communities. Loyalty and commitment are common attributes among Gold Metal employees. Some have been with the company for twenty or thirty years.
When employees were asked for his or her reasons for loyalty, the majority answered that they appreciate the family and team-oriented atmosphere. Several noted how rare it is to find a job where everyone supports one another and all work toward one common goal. Gold Metal honors its employees’ years of service with a Service Recognition Program. In 2010, Gold Metal had nearly 100 people celebrating over five years of service with the company. Over ten people celebrated twenty plus years of service!
The Gold Metal Recyclers Wellness Program encourages all employees to live a healthy lifestyle. The program includes corporate gym membership rates, corporate weight management programs, and on-site health and nutrition speakers. Gold Metal management believes that success is conquered by balancing hard work with good health and beneficial practices.
In 2010, Gold Metal was honored by The Dallas Morning News as one of the TOP 100 Best Places to Work in Dallas. This was based off of anonymous employee surveys, concentrating on qualities such as leadership, compensation, and flexibility. Both owners, Kenny and Neil Goldberg, are active in every business and operational decision the company makes. They motivate the team to work together and try to empower others to grow within.
