We believe a successful company comes from a team of employees who are aligned with living our Values. Cue The Guardians, our retention team. The Guardians check the pulse of our culture with a monthly survey, giving each employee a voice to openly share feedback about their experience at Solid Blend. Plus, daily check-ins and monthly all-company meetings create an open line of communication, that we actually listen to. We rely on this feedback to continually improve processes and enhance our work environment. Check out our blogs on why, and how we care for our culture at Solid Blend.

We also believe in our community and that everyone deserves an equal chance, no matter their race, gender or past.
