Stamp-Connection // No. 3 Small Company
Stamp-Connection owner John Clark is proud that his stamp manufacturing business can take orders as late as 3 in the afternoon and still ship the next morning. His top priority, however, is his employees. “They are the key to growth,” Clark says.
None of Gresham-based Stamp-Connection’s 15 employees were laid off during the recession, and no benefits were cut. Employees can count on a guaranteed 3% cost of living increase in April, and a merit-based raise ranging from 3% to 10% in October. That raise is based on an employee evaluation discussed one-on-one between Clark and each employee.
“We…make sure there are no misunderstandings,” Clark says. “We’re all on the same page here.” “No one’s on a totem pole,” says Jon Morse, a typesetter.
Employees make analogies to family when describing the camaraderie and tension-free work environment. Everyone plays on a softball team, belong to the Eagles Lodge and is free to bring their dogs or children to work. A group including Clark is looking forward to quitting smoking together and providing a work-based support group.
“There’s no person here who doesn’t like another person,” says office manager Serene Brown.
