Quality products and quality people. You’ll find both at Greenwood-based DiscountFilters.com, which manufactures air and water filters.
Fun. Friendly. Unafraid of failure. These are three traits that run throughout the business, one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Indiana.
“We have a culture that encourages people to try and there isn’t a fear of failure,” comments HR director Abby Robertson. “From an HR perspective, I’m given a lot of autonomy to make decisions on behalf of the company and I feel like I’m trusted to do the right thing versus always having to seek buy-in or approval. We’re not a company that has a hierarchy of decision-making and it allows me to do my job quicker, faster and to see results a lot sooner. When something doesn’t work out, we’re like, ‘All right. What did you learn?’ And we move on.”
DiscountFilters.com also prioritizes employee recognition. Robertson recounts one example.
“Our controller last year helped us with a migration project and she was busy working her tail off! As a thank you, we sent her to a concert to see her favorite band in Illinois overnight with her husband. It’s (acknowledgement) very much tailored to the individual and customized to what makes them feel good.”
