ROCKY MOUNT - Furniture and home accessory manufacturer Uttermost says it is rewarding bonuses and increased profit sharing to all employees, the company announced in a press release Wednesday.
Full time employees with one year of experience were given $1,000. Part time employees and those with less than one year of experience received $300 bonuses.
Uttermost also announced they are doubling the employer 401k match.
"While the bonuses are much more fun, the boost into the retirement program is more important long term," president Mac Cooper said. "We have enjoyed many years of solid growth in our business. This growth, in conjunction with the tax reform bill, allows us to thank our employees in a special way this year for their phenomenal efforts."
Uttermost operates a 600,000 square foot facility in Rocky Mount and a 152,000 square foot distrubution facility in Riverside, California. The company has employees around the world.
The 41-year-old faith-based company got their name from Acts 1:8, to share God's Word to the "uttermost part of the earth".
