• Recognition

    Recognition programs are ingrained in the culture at NIBCO. Recognizing and rewarding associates is considered not only "the right thing to do" but critical to keeping our talented associates who make NIBCO successful.

    25 Year Club

    The 25 Year Club recognizes NIBCO associates with 25 years or more of service. The club has over 300 members, more than 15% of our total workforce. These associates are recognized at annual ceremonies held at each location. Ceremonies commemorate associates who are achieving 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 year milestones. Associates receive awards at each of these milestones, culminating with a personally engraved grandfather clock at 50 years. Each location also has an off-site, fun event to the theatre or a sporting event each year.

    Wellness Victory Awards celebrate associates who have committed to "heroic health" changes. NIBCO associates are given great opportunities at work to make healthy choices due to our strong Wellness Program. Winners receive $500 cash and a Wellness Victory trophy. To win, an associate must accomplish a substantial wellness success such as weight loss, quitting smoking, or significant ongoing exercise. The associate must have the courage to share their story with their NIBCO family.
