Trex Company was among those honored by the Washington Post in its 2014 Top Workplaces annual feature.
Recognized for its leadership, pay and benefits, training, diversity and workplace flexibility, Trex also stood out in large part thanks to its commitment to maintaining strong compensation for its employees in the midst of the economic downturn.
"Trex's leadership strives to provide a desirable workplace through its company practices and policies," said Jay Rudolph, senior director of human resources for Trex. "In the face of a sluggish economy, where cutting benefit programs in order to save money is more the rule than the exception, Trex has stood strong for its employees. Best-in-class products are created by best-in-class people. Striking a balance between the needs of the company and the needs of our people has resulted in low turnover and high employee satisfaction."
Trex employees can avail themselves of competitive pay, an incentive bonus program, full medical, dental and life insurance, a 401(k) plan with a one-to-one company match up to 6%, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, tuition reimbursement for continuing education and an employee discount program on Trex products.
Starting with 36 employees in 1993 -- 11 of whom are still there today -- Trex currently has over 600 employees.
