How we meet employee needs:

Work-Life Balance

To maintain quality performance and a positive work atmosphere we believe time off is necessary. On top of our generous PTO package we offer paid holidays, funeral leave, family medical leave and more. 

Health & Wellbeing

We care about the health of our employees which is why we offer a comprehensive health plan through Avera with 80% employer coverage. Supplemental insurance is offered such as dental, vision, critical illness, disability etc. We also offer Flexible and Dependent Care spending accounts.  Our Employee Assistance program offers free counseling services to employees and family members in addition to discounted financial and legal services. 

Retirement Investment

Long term financial success is important and upon eligibility Van Buskirk Companies will match employee 401(k) contributions to the max IRS Safe Harbor match of 100% of their elective deferral on the first 3% of compensation, and 50% on the next 2% deferred. 


Van Buskirk Companies owners have deep appreciation for their employees. To show their gratitude VBC has seasonal employee parties, periodic surprise treats, and celebratory birthday and holiday gifts. 


Integrity and respect are pillars of VBC culture. We believe honest feedback, an open door policy and positive conflict resolution are necessary when working as a team. Managers utilize psychological safety practices so that employees can trust and feel encouraged to come forward in a safe space with questions or concerns.
