We hear it time and time again from employees. When we ask, "What made you decide to join Burke?" or "What keeps you here?" the answer is usually the same: "It's Burke's culture."

Burke was recently ranked #1 in the Enquirer Media 2014 Top Workplaces competition. We placed 1st among mid-sized companies in the Greater Cincinnati area, and we think you'll understand why! Because of a work environment that fosters open communication, feedback, growth and learning opportunities, and employee involvement, our employee turnover rate of less than 5 percent is well below the industry average.

100% Employee Owned
Burke offers all full-time employees the opportunity to own employee stock in the company through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The ESOP is not a stock purchase or matching program; you do not contribute your own money to the ESOP. The stock is given to you for being an employee; it's free! With the pride and accountability of ownership comes a strong desire to contribute to the organization's goals and fulfill its mission. Burke employees share a commitment to do their best work knowing they will share in the financial success of the company.

Open Communication & Feedback
Open communication is a key component of our culture. We have an open feedback system so employees can give year-round feedback to each other. The President & CEO of Burke holds employee discussion groups monthly to exchange information with staff members. Our employees can share their thoughts about working at Burke through an on-line employee engagement survey. Employee committees, such as our Advisory Council, make recommendations for process improvements. Company financials are reviewed with all employees at quarterly employee meetings, and the company intranet site, email and quarterly newsletters help keep everyone connected.

The environment at Burke is casual in many ways, including in the informality of our work relationships. Employees at all levels interact with each other as needed to get the job done. We strive to minimize strict rules and structures in favor of openness and innovation. Our employees enjoy working together, but they like having fun together, too. Our Events Committee plans monthly activities, including an annual family outing, holiday dinner-dance, and "Opening Day" celebration.

Employee Growth and Learning
The growth and learning of employees is a high priority. New employees are assigned a mentor and participate in a comprehensive new hire training program, which includes extensive hands-on learning, as well as the opportunity to meet with and learn from other employees in various functions across the company. Software and other technical training opportunities are also offered so everyone can take advantage of the state-of-the-art technology available at work. Employees are encouraged to develop expertise in their functional area and to "branch out" through cross-training.


Community Involvement
One of Burke's values is to positively impact the communities in which we live and work. Burke's B-Cause program promotes employee service to the community by facilitating employee involvement. The organizations supported by B-Cause are nominated annually by employees and have included the Dragonfly Foundation, the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky, Most Valuable Kids, Dress for Success Cincinnati, and The Welcome House. Since 1985, we have been a "Partner in Education" with Rees E. Price Academy, an inner city school. We support the school through an annual school supply drive, a pen pal program, and by providing financial support for educational programs not covered by basic funding sources. And, we love supporting Cincinnati's running community (many of which work here) through providing sponsorship and services for the annual Flying Pig Marathon.


Burke's History
2016 marked Burke's 85th year in business and while it is a special accomplishment for any company, it is especially special for one with such a unique beginning. Our company was founded by a 27 year-old woman named Alberta Burke in the midst of the Great Depression. Her passion, integrity, drive, and independent spirit led to the creation of Burke and those same qualities have come to define us as a company. Since 1931, we have stayed loyal to Alberta's vision of what a great company should be and look forward to carrying forth this legacy for another 85 years!
