Congrats to John Wohlfiel for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Fluidmaster
Honoree Category: Corporate
Why Nominated: John is the head of our HR Department, responsible for our 1300 employees around the world. In 2011 faced with excessive turnover (20%+) John started a series of team building programs centered around charitable giving and volunteerism at Fluidmaster. Focused on four different charitable organizations, he provided our team a wide variety of options to participate with the charily of their choice, through either financial donations, through participation in activities (such as BBQ’s and 50/50 drawings), or through simple volunteering – the employees went where they were comfortable. Today Fluidmaster is rated one of the top Places to Work in Orange County (OC Register 2012 and 2013; Orange County Business Journal 2012 and 2013). We have reduced turnover over 50% and have nearly doubled our profits. More importantly, under Johns leadership our team annually raises over $25,000 for charity, and participates along side John in a host of events for Habitat for Humanity, The Boys and Girls Club of San Juan Capistrano, The Boy Scouts and The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, where John is the Chairman of the event.
