Domino's Pizza Named One of Michigan's 'Cool Places to Work'

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Domino's Pizza LLC's World Resource Center was once again named one of Michigan's "Cool Places to Work" by Crain's Detroit Business. Domino's initially received the designation in 2005. The award will be presented on Oct. 4 at the Emagine Theater and Lucky Strike Lanes.

The "Cool Places to Work" competition was established to honor companies that work with imagination and conviction to create organizational value and business results through their programs, policies and practices in human resource management.

Part of what makes Domino's a "Cool Place to Work" is the friendly, fun environment encouraged before new team members even walk through the door. A Pizza Box Welcome Kit is delivered to new members' homes before their first day. The box is stuffed with Domino's goodies, information about the company and a warm welcoming message to show Domino's excitement about the addition of new faces. Of course, it also includes gift certificates for free pizza!

Other "cool" Domino's programs include:

  • Domino's Days - designated bonus days off to extend summer holiday
    weekends so team members can spend more time with their families.
  • Domino's Anniversary Day - On December 9, Domino's anniversary, team
    members celebrating five-year company milestones receive monetary
    awards and are honored with a special breakfast with the CEO and the
    company's leadership team.
  • The Domino's Pizza Partners Foundation - completely funded by employee
    and franchise contributions, the Foundation has contributed over $5
    million in 21 years to help team members in need due to accidents,
    illness, or other personal tragedies.
  • Annual REPPY (Recognizing Exceptional People) Awards - annual
    recognition of exceptional team members nominated by their peers.
    Recipients receive a trophy, personalized video and stock options.
  • Domino's Pizza Prep School - an intensive training program for office-
    based employees, during which they learn how to run a Domino's Pizza
    store.
  • The "Laff Staff" - a volunteer group of Domino's employees who
    coordinate special events, from organizing parties for 500 to more
    simple events like a visit from an ice cream vendor on a hot August
    afternoon.

"We are excited to be named one of Michigan's coolest places to work once again," said Patti Wilmot, executive vice president of PeopleFirst at Domino's Pizza. "This recognition confirms that Domino's Pizza is dedicated to putting people first, by promoting a fun, productive environment where team members are recognized and appreciated for their contributions."

Selection was based both on employee nominations and on numerical scores on a survey created by Southfield-based American Society of Employers, a membership organization that collects workplace data and offers training in human resource issues. Points were awarded based on responses to individual questions. Total survey scores were then derived by totaling the weighted scores in eight categories.
