“There are a lot of opportunities here right now,” says Dana Bergman, Training and Benefit Administration Coordinator. “Depending on skill levels, we recognize that very few people actually come to us with print and binding experience, but we do a lot of on the job training. We grow employees and their expertise. We love to promote from within, if we have staff who desire development.

“Friesens is very community-minded and loyal. And our staff finds it rewarding to work here. Everyone wants to go home at the end of the day knowing there was value in what they did. If you own part of the company you work at, a company that contributes back to the community you live in, you can be proud of how you contribute to where you live.”
