Women Thrive Here
While women around the world are underrepresented in the workplace and particularly in management, VRG embraces their contributions. In fact, we are a woman-owned business. Our CEO, Verena Martin, is a strong and experienced leader who runs the company with vision, passion, and determination. She is extremely well respected within the organization, our industry, and the community.
Women thrive throughout this organization. Currently, 50% of our management team is female and 61% of our workforce is female. No gender pay gap has ever existed here and never will.
Age Diversity Embraced
From Day 1 we have believed that age diversity in the workplace can improve organizational performance, reduce employee turnover and drive innovation. Our Baby Boomers and Gen Xers, who represent 45% of our workforce, bring the valued experience needed to achieve our growth strategy while our Millennials and iGen centennials continually bring welcomed fresh new ideas.
VRG has very intentionally built a strong multicultural team and our experts communicate with customers and suppliers in their native tongue. On any given day you will hear conversations in German, Spanish, French, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, and, of course, English. This enables us to build meaningful and long-term relationships with our customers and suppliers located in every corner of the world.
Not only are we committed to our employees and our customers but also to those in need. We believe that we get much more from life when we help others. VRG’s commitment to giving makes every one of us grateful to work and thrive in a company that cares. Currently, VRG Components supports three non-profit organizations:
- charity: water
- Project Eden Adelante
- Charlotte Bilingual Preschool
Project Eden Adelante is also near and dear to our hearts. This Honduras-based organization works to alleviate malnutrition and educate children in a corner of the world that suffers from a 60% poverty rate. Since VRG’s beginnings in 2014 our team’s hard work made it possible for 80 children to attend school for an entire year. VRG Components continues to financially support the ongoing education of several children.
Project Eden works to alleviate malnutrition among the people, mostly children, of the San Francisco de La Paz area in Honduras, and Adelante works to educate students from grades 4 through 12.
Service: They work side by side with the local population in the areas of agriculture, education, nutrition, and healthcare.
Spirituality: They worship and pray with the local community and the local church by reading and living the gospel.
Solidarity: They come to know the poor through listening and mutual sharing of resources.
Justice: They experience and reflect on the life of the poor and the reality of poverty.
