Southwire provides a desirable workplace for our employees with fair compensation and a well-developed company culture based on a “family feel.” The majority of Southwire’s employees are full-time, hourly workers. With positive employee relations, collective bargaining agreements covered approximately 3 percent of our full-time employees in 2018, which includes those employees located at our Waukegan, Illinois, manufacturing operations.
Human resource data was compiled through our SAP SuccessFactors application, which does not include employee data for Mexico, Honduras, China, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Therefore, breakdowns by gender and employment type do not represent Southwire’s entire population of 7,956 employees.
