Pursuing Excellence in Food Processing

Sam Macias

LABORATORY SUPERVISOR

Always find a way to improve: that’s the key. In Sam’s supervisory role in our quality assurance laboratory, he needs technical insight that sets him—and our company—apart in the second-biggest food-processing city in the country. So our CEO helped establish the Food Technology program at the local community college to create an opportunity for employees like Sam to develop the cutting-edge skills and knowledge that differentiate leaders in this competitive industry. “As soon as the Food Technology program opens,” Sam says, “I’ll be in the classroom to take advantage of this amazing chance to grow.”

Investing in Education

Tandra Benavides

PAYROLL SPECIALIST

When Tandra joined us, she was working on a B.S. in accounting at Boise State University—so she was excited to learn about our tuition reimbursement program. “Employees can receive up to 50% reimbursement for their education—an amazing benefit,” she says. Completing her degree while working at IMP allowed her to grow her payroll responsibilities to include compliance, financial reporting, tax accounting, and more. “It’s so rewarding to work for a company that invests in me because it means they believe their success is tied to my success.”
