Our workforce performs like none other in the steel industry, because we believe every person who works here is part of our team. Our pay-for-performance system and lack of corporate hierarchy reward teammates for their decision making, and by paying weekly production incentive bonuses, teammates are motivated to find new ways to be more efficient and more productive. And since everyone has an equal voice at Nucor, we encourage our teammates to bring us their new ideas.
