Our Culture

Family owned and operated since 1931, Gold Medal has the philosophy that our employees are the heart of our business. Creating a work atmosphere that is both engaging and enjoyable is a priority. If you walk through our building, you’ll catch the delicious aroma of freshly popped popcorn. In addition, our culture is highly relational from having a live person to answer every phone call to regularly communicating company news and employee recognition in our quarterly newsletter, The Screamin’ Eagle. Also, Gold Medal holds our annual company picnic at a local Cincinnati attraction, like Kings Island or the Cincinnati Zoo, where employees and their families are invited to enjoy a day full of fun, food, prize giveaways, and community. We take pride in the longevity of our employees through our Service Awards program that rewards individuals for each five-year increment of employment with our company. Last, but certainly not least, Gold Medal offers an impressive profit sharing program, which encourages every employee to do his/her part to help us achieve our best each and every year.

Manny award

Manny Awards

In 2020 and 2017, Gold Medal was awarded recognition as a “Best Place to Work” in Cincy Magazine’s Manny Awards. This acknowledgement is defined by excellence in the manufacturing industry for employee engagement, benefits structure, employee recognition programs, and influence in the community. Manufacturing can be a challenging work environment. That’s why we work hard to provide our employees with benefits that exceed the norm. Success like Gold Medal has experienced doesn’t come easy. It only comes because of the efforts of individuals who give their best on a day-to-day basis. We credit our employees for the work ethic, loyalty, and vision that shape the future of our company.
