Worthington pioneered many unique employee benefits and forms of recognition, particularly within the manufacturing industry. Some examples include onsite barbershops in 1961, a profit sharing and salary plan for production workers in 1966, an onsite fitness center in 1985 and an onsite Medical Center and Pharmacy (with mail-order services) in 1994.
Worthington has continued to expand its employee-centered benefits and programs over the years, including a recent Medical Center renovation and the addition of chiropractic care, counseling and massage services. The Company's Wellness Program, offered for over two decades, provides free health screenings, so employees and spouses can "know their numbers" and focus on preventative care. Through the program, Worthington also hosts companywide and location-specific events like health fairs, 5K races and exercise challenges.
