Our philosophy at Shape-NetShape is to take a balanced approach to sustainability.
Community & Financial Health
Shape in the Community
At Shape, we realize our company and associates are members of a much larger community. We take great care as a family to give back and support those organizations and individuals that need assistance, donating time, talents and funds through Shape volunteer programs and initiatives. As a company, we have always been a West Michigan leader in corporate responsibility.
United Way – Giving Back
The Shape United Way campaign is a pace setter for our area. In February 2011, as a testament to our commitment in the community, the United Way honored Shape’s 2010 United Way campaign. Shape associates continued the tradition of exceeding campaign goals year after year, donating dollars and time. In 2010, 63 percent of associates made financial contributions while volunteer hours clocked in at 4,000 hours.
Shape’s record of financial health is impressive – not only is the company strong in the midst of an economic slowdown and upheaval in the automotive and manufacturing industries, but Shape has awarded a quarterly bonus for 24 of the 25 years since the bonus program began. The bonus program is tied to key measures such a safety incidents, scrap and quality PPM. The better Shape performs, the higher the bonus. By tying an incentive to our key measures, associates are driven to find ways to improve performance, while families and the community benefit from more resources in the local community.
Shape’s solid financial footing allows us to expand our reach globally to meet customer demand. Shape has various operations in Japan, Mexico, China, India, Korea, Germany, France and the Czech Republic.
