A Letter From Todd Simmons
Welcome to Simmons and thanks for showing interest in our family business. My Grandfather started the company back in 1949, and the same hard work and new ways of doing things that drove him to found the company back then still drive us today. We not only work as a team, we consider each other family. Our mission statement says “The People of Simmons are Building a Great Company Using Innovative Ideas to Provide Quality Food Products and Services to a Changing World.”

Lean: A little better everyday.
Lean is focused on creating the most value for customers while minimizing waste and using fewer resources.
We started our Lean journey over a decade ago and are continuously working to make it an important part of our culture. As a certified training center for Lean, Simmons has trained thousands of employees and community members in Lean rules and principles. We also developed a proprietary follow up to Lean called "B.E.S.T." (Better, Easier, Safer, Today).
Total Rewards: So much more than pay.
Each of us wants to be part of an organization where we will have great experiences in our work, but we are also interested in the pay and other benefits that will help us grow at work and in our lives. The value each of us receives in exchange for our work is often called “Total Rewards”.
Total Rewards describes everything we get from our employer that we find rewarding including compensation, benefits, recognition, talent development, performance management and resources to maximize our work-life effectiveness.

A note from our Chaplains
Since 2005, Simmons' Chaplains have been coming alongside and investing in our people. As life happens, we want our team members and their families to know that they have someone they can reach out to for help. Our team has taken our experience in pastoral care and developed this resource to encourage and equip you through whatever season of life you are in right now. We hope you find what you are looking for, and we look forward to connecting with you soon.
