Our Culture

We take our work seriously and ourselves a little less so

OUR CULTURE

A 5K to raise money for mammograms. A holiday gift drive for Waypoint, a local agency that provides services to families leaving domestic violence or homelessness behind. Cleaning up a stretch of Third Street in the New Bohemia District. A scholarship for a college-bound child of an employee.

Stamats builds up the community in so many ways, as a corporate entity, as an employer, and as a group of people who care about our planet and neighbors.

A Blue-Zones-designated workplace since 2014, Stamats encourages the healthy activities that help us live longer and happier. Benefits, leave policies, standing desks and other company choices give substance to this encouragement. Our Wellness Committee keeps health and happiness center stage for all of us through fun events and challenges year-round.

Company events range from summer barbecues to walking moai. Some are created by our Great Place to Work or Wellness committees. Others are ad hoc or organized by administration. Some promote wellness, community, or learning, and others are just for fun.

Art. Inspiration. Industry. A sense of place, history and purpose. Attention to the work at hand. Care for each other as human beings. That’s our environment at Stamats.

Our Cedar Rapids headquarters originally housed printing presses and has been reshaped into a modern workspace. Meeting room names wink at the 2008 flood—The Think Tank, The Pond—and the halls are lined with the paintings, prints and masks that the Stamats family has been collecting for almost a century. LEED Silver certified, it’s an inspiring, comfortable home.

Our Minneapolis office is home to The Thorburn Group (TTG), a brand and advertising agency. TTG moved to this renovated industrial space in December 2015.

And then there are the home offices—a cluster in the Bay area, several in Florida, one in New York, a couple in Wisconsin, and so on—each inspiring in its own way.
