Tabar is proud to share our accomplishments with everyone.
Call it Camelot: “We’re a ‘one for all and all for one’ kinda place,” says president Gary Schloss. Indeed, while other companies on our list offer some jaw-dropping perks, this small private-label glove-and-mitten manufacturer delivers with a meat-and-potatoes approach: health care and vision covering 95 percent of costs, paid maternity and paternity leave, 2 P.M. closings on summer Fridays, flexible hours year-round and generous profit-sharing plans. “we try to create a very stable platform so that people can live their lives,” say Schloss. SAIL AWAY: That’s what VP of product development Bill McGown did for six months on his 2002 sabbatical, a benefit granted to Tabar employees on a case-by-case basis.
Tabar was ranked 6th in the small size category (15-49 employee group).
Some of the elements that landed Tabar on this esteemed list include a full and generous employee benefits package that is fully company sponsored, flex time options, Tabar hosted retreats for employees and spouses, A Save the Children campaign that sponsors a child in need for each full time employee, and an overall atmosphere that empowers each person on staff to feel like they share in the ownership and direction of the company.
