Our leadership has long understood that to attract and retain top talent, and to share the benefits of a successful business, RPM must maintain a premium benefits program for its associates. Rather than cutting costs in areas that benefit our associates, we make it a priority to operate in a way that prioritizes their health and wellbeing. We drive success together by offering exceptional benefits, opportunities for advancement and a workplace of empowerment, opportunity and respect.
