Spangler Candy Company Receives Employer Award

Posted July 08, 2016 in Press Releases

BRYAN, OHIO - Spangler Candy Company has been named the 2016 Outstanding Member by the Employers Association (EA). The award is given annually to an EA member who has demonstrated excellence in effort and result in three key areas: active interest in providing an excellent work environment, support and service of the community and involvement with the programs and services of the EA.

Niki Mosier, Director-Human Capital and Joni Lashaway, Human Resources Coordinator, accepted the award on the company’s behalf during the EA’s Leadership Conference in Toledo. “It is so great to see the passion, perseverance, and leadership efforts of Spangler Candy Company receive this recognition from our peers,” Mosier said.

“Great employers are made of great employees,” said Spangler CEO Kirk Vashaw. “The collective work experience of Spangler’s current employees totals more than 5,700 years. They work hard to produce great products, and in turn, the company works hard to provide a positive environment for them to succeed, both in their work lives as well as in their personal lives.”

With more than 450 employees at its location on North Portland Street, Spangler Candy Company is the second largest employer in Bryan. The company continues to grow, and expects to hire an additional 30 people in the next several months.

The presentation of the Outstanding Member Award highlighted many programs, benefits and activities reflecting Spangler’s dedication to its employees. The long list focused on community involvement and a positive workplace environment.

Spangler’s community involvement includes active support of the Williams County YMCA, United Way of Williams County, Bryan City Schools, educational and career development activities, Christmas for Kids Live Drive, and a multitude of other community, service, and wellness activities.

Spangler’s initiatives toward a positive workplace environment include strong benefits programs, wellness and fitness programs, and internal and external education and training opportunities. For example, all Spangler employees receive a free YMCA membership, regular on-site chair massages, ongoing safety trainings, on-site blood pressure checks and flu vaccinations, annual biometric health screenings, and a wide variety of employee celebration and recognition events. The company also offers a generous tuition reimbursement program.

The Employers’ Association serves employers of every size and type throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan by providing Human Resources, Training/Learning and Workplace Wellness resources designed to help companies attract and retain the very best of employees. “We are pleased to give the 2016 award to Spangler Candy Company,” said Jack Hollister, EA President.

Spangler Candy Company has been family owned and operated in Bryan, OH since 1906. It is one of the largest lollipop producers in the world and only major candy cane producer in the United States. Other products include Saf-T-Pops® and Spangler Circus Peanuts. In addition to its regular website, www.spanglercandy.com, the company maintains a strong presence on social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest.
