At Sea-Land, we believe our purpose is simple: to create a great experience for you. When we do that life is better, for you, and for us. These might seem like bold statements, but they are our promise to you, and to us.
People come to Sea-Land and enjoy long careers because, at its core, it’s simply an excellent place to work.
Culture of Care
At Sea-Land, we know that snacks taste better when they’re free and work is better when it’s fun. We think of each other as family members. We work hard, and after 55 years of experience, we have found that families work together best when they have the opportunity to build connections, collaborate and try each other’s favorite recipes at company potlucks.
We routinely look for ways to help one another in our day-to-day work. We will not let each other fail. We are kind, respectful, compassionate and supportive in good times and in bad.
We also know that creating a great experience and fostering a better life means providing a comprehensive benefits package for our employees. Sea-Land employees are not numbers, but people with rapid lives in and outside of our building.
That’s why we’re proud to offer associates a comprehensive health insurance plan, along with dental insurance, vision, life, long-term care insurance and more. We also offer an educational assistance program that will cover some college tuition expenses, and an annual fitness and weight loss reimbursement program, both available to eligible employees.
A Culture of Ownership
For over 25 years, Sea-Land Chemical Company has been a 100% employee-owned company. We are a CertifiedEO company, 100% employee-owned, with an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). This means our entire team is invested in our success.
How does it work? Once eligible, Sea-Land contributes a percentage of your earnings into your stock account. In addition to the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) account, the company also contributes to other retirement accounts on behalf of the employee.
Why ESOP? Because when you’re an owner, success is personal, meaning we have high regard, and even higher standards for our company. We collaborate, we make thoughtful decisions quickly and we strive for outcomes that drive prosperity and performance.
Employee ownership is a win for everyone—it enhances culture, increases retention, supports succession planning and motivates suppliers to work with us. As employee-owners, we look out for the company by doing what is right for our customers, our business partners and ourselves.
A Culture of Giving Back
Sea-Land is demonstrably committed to giving back to the community in both time and funds. Our employees are proud members of several community organizations and we match cash donations made by our employees to qualified charitable organizations. We also provide every employee with eight hours of PTO allowing them to contribute their time to a community service organization.
To best utilize these hours and organize volunteer opportunities for employees, the ESOP Communications Committee created the Sea-Land Community Outstanding Outreach Program, or SCOOP. Since its founding in 2018, SCOOP has committed to coordinating quarterly volunteer Saturdays and organizing company-wide events designed to benefit the Greater Cleveland area.
Together, our employees have participated in volunteer opportunities with the Cleveland Foodbank, Cleveland Metroparks, Cleveland APL, Habitat for Humanity and more. We never miss the chance to rally together and do some good as a team.
