Seneca Learns

We have developed programs to empower our employees with the skills necessary to help them in making a difference to our company. These programs positively impact both our employees and the work environment. Two key programs are Seneca GROWS (Get Rid of Waste Systematically) and Seneca SAVES (Seneca Adding Value Employee System).

GROWS is an approach to learning based on the philosophy that job enrichment must come from uninhibited involvement of those affected. It highlights respect and understanding, and reinforces growth and engagement between the individual and the organization. At the center of GROWS is the development of a continuous improvement action plan. Action plans are instrumental in helping to reach many of Seneca's objectives. We create action plans by reviewing situations in the work area and looking for possible improvements. Many action plans impact the areas of Quality, Human Safety, Cost Reduction, Productivity, or the Environment.

SAVES is an action oriented process improvement program founded on systematic lean problem solving, disciplined waste elimination, superior cost management, and iterative continuous improvements across the organization impacting areas such as quality, service delivery, and employee safety. The program is committed to supporting professional development and personal growth of employees by providing education, training, and direct coaching on the application of lean tools and methodologies. It also fosters a learning organization by promoting reflection, self-assessment, and learning from our experiences.

Employee Benefits

Seneca Foods Corporation offers a competitive and comprehensive array of flexible benefits.

Insurance Plans

Seneca Foods contributes significantly toward group health and dental and prescription drug coverage for eligible employees. We also offer levels of life, disability, and accidental death & dismemberment insurance from plans flexibly designed to meet individual and family needs.

Retirement Plans

Seneca Foods offers several resources to help our employees plan for their successful retirement. It is worth noting that Seneca is one of the few remaining companies that offer both a 401(k) savings plan with a discretionary company match, and a defined benefit pension plan.

Seneca Foods Corporation Employees' Savings Plan - 401(k)

A 401(k) plan is a savings plan by which eligible employees can save for their retirement by contributing pretax dollars from their pay directly into their 401(k) plan accounts. Seneca's 401(k) plan also has a discretionary company match, which means that, each year, the company is able to add to your 401(k) account, based on your own contributions to the Plan.

Seneca Foods Corporation Employees' Pension Benefit Plan

Seneca also sponsors a defined benefit pension plan for eligible employees. A defined benefit pension plan is a retirement plan that is 100% paid for by the company. Eligibility for and participation in the pension plan are typically based on hours and years of service with the company. Seneca's significant investment in our pension plan supports the company's continuing commitment to assist us in planning for our retirement.
