At Van Meter, we are all employee-owners. That means when you succeed, we succeed. We all have powerful voices. We all share new ideas. We all work to improve the ways we work. Because we own more than a company, we own our development, wellbeing, work-life balance, giving and our future. Are you ready to OwnUp?
I own my success.
Every employee at Van Meter is also an employee-owner. That means your voice matters. And we want you to use it. Each day you are encouraged to speak up, share ideas and make a real impact. Because having a voice is even better than having a corner office.
I own my future.
Dreams can come true. Employees receive the traditional retirement plans that you see at other companies, but in addition, the ESOP, “Employee Stock Ownership Plan,” is an incredible benefit that can change lives. When employee-owners work together to grow our company, it means your dreams grow, too. Because we believe you shouldn’t have to rely on the lottery for financial security.
Coming to work at Van Meter has literally changed my life for the better. With all the support around me, I can maintain a successful career while spending more time with my family.Damon Anthony - Owner

I own my development.
As an owner, you are responsible for growing personally and professionally. We invest in you and encourage you to be the best you can be. After all, training should be more than donuts—it should provide real learning.
I own my wellbeing.
When you feel your best, we are at our best as a company. That’s why we focus on your total wellness by offering comprehensive health, wellness and safety programs, parental leave benefits, financial management seminars and more. That way you can bring energy, enthusiasm and positivity to work each day. Because total wellness isn’t just New Year’s Resolution—it’s a way of life here.

I own my work-life balance.
We work hard. We play hard. And we help you do both with TOTAL: Time Off To Appreciate Life™. As an employee-owner you hold yourself accountable for spending time where you’re needed most, so you can focus fully on what’s important—whether that’s at work or at home. Because we believe “Get a Job” and “Get a Life” should be one in the same.
I own my giving.
We make a difference in the places where we work and live. We take care of each other, we serve and we give back. For example, every year each employee-owner receives 8 hours of volunteer time—paid—so that you can positively impact your community. Because giving back doesn’t just help others, it improves all our lives.
